What brand is that belt ?
Does not look like a Crye one to me, neither a Tyr...

Is it only used as a load carriage system, or is this a way to armor-up a bit ?

Vest and belt are part of the KDH ATPC. I dont use the kydex spanner that works like the sktss.

Why carry all that EOD specific kit on you?

Most foreign EOD I've worked with have all that shit crammed into a backpack unless they know before hand they'll be doing a specific task.

Might i also recommend a small hook n' line kit on you. One example can be: 100ft of kevlar or dyneema rope, a hook, 1-2 blocks, a rope sling or two, 2-3 safety-pins, a scalpel/scissors and a bayonet that you can use as a anchor point.

The stuff mentioned above is open info and kits like these can be found at certain online suppliers that have specialized in EOD-gear.

I'm just guessing here but maybe because he's EOD?

You didn't understand my post. English is not my mothers tounge but I'll try to clarify what i meant.

Why have a THD metal detector, crimpers etc. on your main gear.. You dont just carry that shit on your person 24/7. You load it up on your kit or take it out from your assault pack when you've arrived on scene and will begin you clearance. Carrying everything required to do a clearance on your main kit will require a shit load of space and will weigh you down. Neither me, my colleagues or any other countrys EOD I've worked with carry that shit on our main battle gear.

He asked for opinions on it, and I'm giving it to him.

This is what I carry on stateside responses. It affords me some redundancies, especially if I am not in our primary response truck. I typically don't carry an assault pack at home.

Then again, the EOD mantra is "that isn't how I would do it". Thanks for the advice man.

You know what they say, "the only thing three high-threat op's can agree is that one of them is a dick"

How do you like that THD? been trying to get my unit to buy them for certain applications..

They are an incredible tool to have available, especially for the money. This kit was put together for a very specific course I'm attending and I wanted to document what it entailed elsewhere, thus it was posted without explanation with the intent of trolling.

I don't disagree with what you said however with the exception of the belt being mostly demo gear and the vest being typical response gear, this is what I carry. Most of the stuff on the vest is personal issue items anyways and you can see they really don't prevent me from pulsing up to an actual war fighting role.
