So I was thinking about going with the Eagle Industries Maritime release vest but that was discontinued. I need to find the right tactical vest for patrol. Does anybody have any suggestions? Possibly an lbt 6094a if anybody knows if that's any good for law enforcement? I'm just going to have pistol mag pouches on the front, taser, baton, radio, etc...

What kind of plates & soft armor do you need to run? The ones you named use completely different armor.

What kind of work do you do? What's your standard loadout (non PC)? Is there any policy in place? Will you be wearing soft armor already? Concealable or also in outer carrier? Vehicle born or foot patrol?

I'm looking for an outer carrier to add rifle plates to. Standard patrol if that makes sense. Right now I have the standard issue outer carrier but I want something with more molle and tactical like. Some officers I work with have the eagle industries maritime release system vest. I like that kind but it was discontinued

If this set-up is for patrol only, go with something minimalist. You don't necessarly need to throw in quick release feature (unless all your co-workers know you have one and how to handle it in case you go down, and even there, if you carry a low vis soft BA under the shirt, the PC quick release system won't make much difference).
Like you said, you only need to move up a few items from your patrol belt, so no need for a heavy fully pals covered carrier.
I'd suggest you look at BFG plateminus, or if you want something beefier, Mayflower LPAAC.

Ok thanks I will look into that. My reasons for switching to a PC are because wearing a duty belt with multiple items takes a toll on my lower back. Putting most of the stuff on my vest will help distribute that weight.

I do like the mayflower laapc but it doesn't come in black. I want something with a cumberbund and that is similar to the 6094a. I might go with the 6094a if it is capable of being a patrol vest.

I'd say that a full blown out 6094 could be considered overkill, but then again, it depends on your PD SOPs.
Otherwise, the LPAAC does come in black. BFG Plateminus doesn't yet though...

Tag banshee maybe.
First spear has some options.
And if need to appease higher ups, and go with a brand known by non tac guys, 5.11's new rig ain't horrible....

My go to rig for years was the LEMARCIRAS (same as what you said) and I loved it, but don't thing I would want to wear it day in and day out for patrol work. Not sure what "patrol" means for you or where you work, but for us it was cruiser born, traffic stops, disturbances, taking reports, etc... And in all that it would get old quick! Now a minimalist PC, I could do that. Eventually I got promoted to investigations and ditched the uniform and patrol work so the CIRAS worked great for a grab and go shtf. For comfort I got patrol approved for the uniform outer carriers from blauer armorskin. Not tactical but comfortable and customizable.

No idea if it'll work for your intended purposes, but I rather like the look of NFM's new LE Plate Carrier.

I can find the laapc in black anywhere online. But it looks about the same size as the 6094a
