Lovin' the pistol belt setups - that molle belt is very cool too.

Here's my new Splatmaster based rig:


Using a Chicom AK rig, which I was originally going to use for Tib mags and Crosman cylinders, but it works very well for tubes and grenades.
Got room for 9 in there, 3 in each pouch (more at a squeeze) plus 4 nades (I'm partial to smoke... ).
Although you can't see it in the photo, I've used a Viper Molle belt with a Full Clip lefty holster to hold the Splatty rear-draw, it's nice and smooth.

I've got to say as well, using Nomex flight gloves have been a massive improvement over the bulkier tactical gloves when having to reload and such (not to mention saving my fingers from singing on those fuses...) - smooth enough to do some gun twirling, while having very grippy palms.

The scrim's just something I've had knocking about years, fancied a change from the bandana...hey, it's misty here, need to wrap up!

To sum it up, it's manouverable, light and above all things, quiet - no velcro here...

Did I mention it was $20 new? (13)

I'm not a fan of gloves but when I do I use Mechanix MRT 0.5 M-Pact gloves.

Has anyone tried using NFL WR Gloves? There was a study done and they provide 300% grip over normal hands.

With you on the M-Pacts... They're still the only glove I've found that actually holds up to paintball use without dying your hands a new color.

As for the NFL ones, haven't tried 'em but I really don't don the gloves for grip, I wear them when it's a little chilly because hand shots in the cold suck serious balls...

Now that they've listened to the clamor and found a way to reproduce their DTPRO carpenter's gloves(made to the old Duluth Trading design by ironclad), I'm in heaven again:



Thin Padded knuckles and palm heel, more glove left down the fingers and the ring and little finger covered and padded.

I can't vouch for the ironclad quality, but my old pair literally were sewn with kevlar thread. They last forever and the contact points between glove and gun are unpadded for feel and control.

The biggie for me is that they come in XXL. Tight, golf glove fit is great from the back of a swat van in the driveway to the porch, but 12 hours of play in 2 days? No thanks!

I got an XL because I'm chubby and most things I wear are designated by XL.

This is the biggest belt in the world. I have a slightly smaller than 44 waist and this is tightened almost all the way. I probably have an inch on either side before it is tightened all the way. It has to be 8-10 feet long

Just got mine as well and I had to tighten the webbing(non padded molle section) down all the way to the buckle.
