LBT-1961a

Something completely different from the FSBE II stuff is this London Bridge Trading 1961a. A chestrig that is used by many SOF operators including SEALS. This is the latest and most simple version without quick release and zipper (LBT-1961A-R) or flotation device storage compatibility (LBT-1961G).

It’s usually used in combination with some kind of plate carrier, like a slick LBT-6037, Veltye Hugger or just a PACA as shown above.
Color of this rig is tan and as such it’s the very first piece of gear that I own in tan color. I have to admit that I am a bit tired of my coyote brown gear. I am not selling the FSBE II collection though, as I cannot bare to part with it yet. :)

Surefire G2

Just got this little light in. It’s a G2 made by Surefire. It’s nice, sturdy and well built. It came with 2 Surefire CR-123 batteries, 2 extra CR-123 batteries, a little nylon holster, a replacement LED bulb and a little LED keychain light.

The flashlight itself is very good and works well. The other bits that came with it are shit though. The LED bulb does not fit properly in the flashlight housing. I kind of got it to work, but it’s still not how it should fit. It is extremely bright though with its 280 (!!!) lumen, whereas the standard bulb puts out 65 lumen.

The G2 fits in the holster well but the flap is too short to fit over the flashlight. But I have a CSM speedholster coming in, so it doesn’t matter that much.

The LED keychain light is nice on the other hand, it’s small, light and extremely bright. Definitely will put that to good use!
