    Galil web gear?

    I hate being a gear geek. Or at the very least I hate letting everyone know I'm a gear geek.

    What sort of web gear did the IDF issue for Galil items? Any good recommendations for mag pouches? I mean, just how does one carry extra 50 round mags?

    Why hate being a gear geek? Surrender to it!

    For 50 round mags:

    Want to be able to carry 9 mags (8 + 1 in the well) with genuine military web gear for less than $20?

    Light. Simple. Rugged.

    Both are 3 mag pouches.

    BTW, you can store additional ammo in the 4 smaller side pockets.

    OK. So you have 3 mags in pouches and 1 in the well. "Not enough!", you say?

    No problem. Get a 5 mag side carry pouch with a shoulder strap (or 2 or 3).

    This is not the current 'high speed' gear. But, it is what I actually use going to the range or general shooting purposes. It is also what I had 'ready to go' during the LA riots and I felt I was very well equipped.

    I prefer cotton webbing since it 'breathes' and I have had problems in the past with mags rusting when left in nylon gear. I store mags in cotton webbing with no worry.

    Gear

    I recently used a Mormin Dolphin tactical vest while @ Blackwater. I was able to carry 8 twenty five round mags in 7.62 along with 3 high cap glock mags. It was comfortable to wear for up to 8 hours at a time. Well worth the $$. Easily found on E Bay.

    These above sights also carry them. I got the vest with the removable back pack. I find it more versitile.

    In Israel you can buy these vests at the central bus station in every town or at a department store called "Ricochet." I can't remember exactly how much they cost, but I used to have a couple in different configs and sold them on ebay. I will replace them when I go to Israel. There is also another company Smamit, I believe that makes good Israeli nylon.

    I picked up a Recon vest and standard Infantry Harness from a shop at the multi -level mall on Dizengolf when I was there in '92. Great quality stuff Marom -Dolphin

    Yeah I know the store I used to go there when I was a little kid. I usually went to a store in Eged Central Bus station in Haifa. I once even had an Israeli Recon vest in dark navy blue with black pouches I regret I sold it. I wish one of these companies would make a nylon UZI vest with stick mag pouches. I am sure everyone on this site would buy at least two.

    Israel
    Many online vendors send them directly to the USA from Israel.

    The second link is the store on the second level in the mall at the end of Dizengolf street. E Bay under IDF will also have a number of the vests.

    Ok, so those are pretty cool. Does anyone have one? Has anyone seen one? They look kinda big and bulky. Other then the cool factor is there a reason to get one of these over a US made/style vest that is about half the cost?

    I have one as can be seen in the pic on previous post(up above). They are well made & if you aren't looking for a molle style vest are about as good as can be had. I prefer the vest with the removable back pack, more versatile. The vest holds a boat load of ammo & is comfortable, well padded, & really not that "bulky". Do you need to spend the $$ for one of these over a US made vest...no, but I do like to support the Israeli economy that is so often boycotted by the rest of the world.

    Good point boscoman!! Also if you are considering buying anything "US made" in terms of vests or nylon please be aware it is most probably manufactured in China or Vietnam. If you want to buy top of the line "US made" gear only go with Eagle Industries as that is one of the only brands actually made here in the US. I agree with Bosco that the Israeli vests are of excellent quality and I like the versatility of removable back pouches if you need to be in a vehicle.

    Command Arms Accessories is worth a try. They have several different IDF vests.

    Here's a possibility for 6 of the 25 round mags for a grab-n-go scenario.

    I have a couple for 20 round .308 mags and a couple for my 25 round .308 Galil mags. For the 25 round .308 Galil mags I use the one made for 30 round .308 mags/32 round UZI mags.

    If you have a full-on high speed web gear set-up already, these bags can be your extra mags that are slung on or off the situation dictates.

    Not cheap, but, very well made.

    Of course, they can do double duty for the UZI afficionados with the 32 round mags.

    I will vouch for the quality of Elite Survival personally. Excellent products and made in the USA. The bag they make for the FS UZI and Galil are awesome. Make sure if you get the Galil Bag w/ Collapsed Stock you rifle has under an 18 in. barrel. If not go with the Galil Bag w/ Deployed Stock. I mentioned the tight fit to the Elite rep. at SHOT Show.

    The Pattern 83 vest issued by the SADF is made for the R4 and pretty good piece of kit. They are pretty prized when they come up. Not mine but here is one on ebay.
