Sorry for neglecting this blog! I have been busy, what with being married and saving up for wedding reception and other things! Here is one of my projects; an extra wide, extra large MOLLE waist belt system; It is made of 1000D Cordura in Tactical Tailor Olive Green, with 3 rows of MOLLE, and 1 row of 2″ ALICE type webbing. The main belt is sized for 1XL-2XL dudes; about 40 inches and 6 inches wide on the padded, MOLLE/ALICE webbing section, with 2″ webbing belt for big bellies. I tried to make a set of MOLLE I style sleeves that extends the main padded section, but they are not very effective. Likely will redo them eventually.
Shown with Tactical Tailor Medium Modular MOLLE belt
Back showing 3mm air mesh padding
With Tactical Tailor pouches and Bianchi holster; and Tactical Tailor X harness with custom front straps
MOLLE I style extension sleeves; I think they need closed cell foam or plastic stiffeners to work better. Shown with MOLLE I vest panels attached
MOLLE I with extensions; modeled by yours truly, wearing 1980s OD Extreme Cold Weather Parka with liner removed;
LBE mode with extensions removed, just main belt, Tactical Tailor X harness and 1.5″ vertical straps. Same 1980s parka; the LBE equipment colors really blends with the parka color.
