Belt-mounted kit with a harness might not the hotness these days, but there's a reason the concept was used for hundreds of years. It works! I've used this attached to a warbelt in competitions as well as just walking around with a pack and rifle in the woods. It lets me comfortably carry more on the belt. I haven't even made use of the webbing on the back yet. The harness is made very well and has stood up to use.
ATS Padded War Belt Harness
The ATS Padded War Belt Harness was designed to add some load bearing and modular capability to the best-selling ATS War Belt. The rear of the harness features a grid of four channels and six rows of PALS webbing to allow the attaching of a hydration carrier or utility pouch. There is additional PALS compatible webbing on the padded shoulder straps. The underside of the shoulder pads are lined with Aero Spacer for comfort. The harness attaches to the War Belt by way of 1" straps that are secured via ITW/Nexus TriGlides. As with all ATS Tactical Gear brand equipment, the harness is covered by our lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
This is the third product that I have purchased from ATS. Their commitment to quality is second to none. The harness is well built with lots of stitching and tough material. Shoulder pads feels great and comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone. Also it's made in the USA! I love their products!
I have tried a number of different battle/war belt setups from different manufacturers and this one is my absolute favorite. It is well constructed and when you use the ATS war belt, inner belt, and harness it is an outstanding setup. The fact that you can access almost all of the inner belt is one of the many outstanding features of this piece of kit. I highly recommend this setup to anyone interested in this type of gear.
