    I’m thinking of upgrading my banshee plate carrier to something better to go with my ShotStop plates. Top choice so far is Crye JPC but I’d love to hear what other Alumni are running and what they think of it.

    Bought a Cyre off of another Alumni and I love it. Need to find another one to upgrade the boy at some point.

    Thanks for posting. I’m leaning towards the JPC its seems to be more reasonable price wise.

    My father in law runs the Crye JPC and loves it. I run the Warrior Assualt Systems recon rig. I personally love the quick snaps versus Velcro. I have been eyeballing the first spear rigs for a while, just haven’t pulled the trigger based on the price point.

    I run a jpc but swapped the cumberbound out for a first spear tube unit. I love the first spear tube design. If I had to do it again, I’d go with a full first spear plate carrier. I bought the jpc a year before I switched the cumberbound and didn’t want to spend the additional several hundred dollars for the full first spear rig.

    There never seems to be enough time to do it right, but there is always enough time to do it twice.

    Velocity Scarab LT. With the ultra small zip on back pac. The articulating shoulder straps make for super comfortable movement. Plus with Velocity in the name how can you go wrong. Seriously though, great piece of kit. I can quickly attach either of the MVT chest rigs I have.

    Direct Action Gear, Spit Fire Plate carrier. Very similar to the JPC & very light.

    I’ve been using the FirstSpear STT https://www.skdtac.com/FirstSpear-STT-Plate-Carrier-SKD-Exclusive-p/fsr.550.htm.

    The tubes are nice.

    So after a lot of deliberation I decided to try out a US made version of the LBT 6094. AWS Inc makes it,there are some great reviews and their gear is well made. They sell their version of the 6094 for about $150 and I can get a tubes conversion for it for another $100 from Beez Combat systems. After I receive it I will update with what I think of it.
