This last display is probably one of my favorite set-ups.

 

Uniform is a standard modified DCU with pockets sewn to the sleeves.

 

The body armor is a 2003 or 2004 dated Protective Products International (PPI) with places for the hard armor. You can see where the hard plates have worn an indentation into the fabric.

 

The vest is a HEAVILY modified Blackhawk Commando chest rig. I have posted pictures of the modifications on another thread on the forum.

 

The helmet is a purchase from Longbranch and I feel it rounds out the display nicely.

Thanks, Justin. This one has been a long time coming and I'm glad I was able to find one at a reasonable price.
