US Special Forces
 
this is my take on the Us Special Forces operator impression. None of my kits are ever 100% true to life, but more to my specific tastes. This mentality goes well with SF type kits, as they use what works. hell, I've seen a photo where on man made a sling out of duct-tape. the whole sling haha.


anyways, heres some pics with the kit list!

od shamagh
CF issue wool sweater (will wear black or OD t shirt in summer, or 3-color jacket)
Phantom plate carrier
US webbing (y susp. pistol belt, King Arms buttpack, drop leg holster and dump pouch)
3-color desert pants
issued desert boots

Pip April 5th, 2007 00:35

1. ditch the shemagh.

2. take off the special forces patch (Almost no one in real life wears it anyhow).

3. if you are handy with a sewing machine, remove the upper and lower pockets on your jacket, move the lower pockets to where the upper was originally, then move the upper pockets to your arms side of your arms at an angle, most SF use modded jackets like this so when wearing armor they still have access to their pockets.

4. change your ciras pouch setup. Center the mag pouches, take out the grenade one, consider putting in the radio one if anything just for looks. Consider moving your pistol one lower, and centering your admin pouch too.
Also, if you have the cash, buy a tan maritime instead, otherwise, consider painting your od land tan, even if you are doing a woodland impression, it will look alot better when you do that.

5. wear your duty belt over your top, and tuck your top into your pants. Both are optional, I just think they look neater and professional.

I'm not good with a sewing machine, and much to lazy

I don't have a grenade pouch :p. O prefer the OD in our area, works better then tan and I think it looks better

5. wear your duty belt over your top, and tuck your top into your pants. Both are optional, I just think they look neater and professional.I tried, but my top pulls out as the day goes on so I leave it like this. plus i stay cooler in the heat

thanks for your input.

like I stated in my original post, I usually just go with what works for me, and keep my look loosely based on the SF

I have quite some pictures of SF in woodland RAV, woodland and OD AWS CQB carrier, so IMO the OD CIRAS is OK if he's not going for 100% perfect.
The Tan CIRAS are quite new trend in the SF community I'd say. I even have a picture of an operator in Philipines who wears a woodland IBA!!

Personnaly I would put a small utility pouch instead of the pistol mag pouch

Graham September 2nd, 2007 22:35

then where would I put my pistol mags? hmmmmmm? haha

I'll take a look at it tonight, see if I can clean it up a bit

Vince September 2nd, 2007 22:53

Well it's all up to you in the end, but most pics I have, the pistol mags are carried on a belt (LC3 or MOLLE)

Kimbo September 2nd, 2007 23:41

alot of guys will carry their pistol mags on thier primary line (belt) so that if they have to quick ditch their armor they still have ammo for thier secondary weapon.
