Hi guys!

Would you say that an Eagle Ind. H-harness is a good choice if one is looking for a modular load carrying harness instead of all the different chest rigs or plate carriers and what not.

I'm looking for a carrier able to carry a lot of stuff but can still be carried comfortably for fairly long periods of time.

Also I'd like to know if the harness allows it to be carried fairly high. Not like a chest rig but still I'd like to have it more on my abdomen and midsection than on my hips.

Thanks in advance for any answers!

Also any pics of your setups for this carrier are more than welcome!

I had an SFLCS for a while and it was fantastic rig! Once properly set it never moved around and I carried some heavy loads with it (granted it was always for *airsoft* but then again I like realistic loads). I also took off the back panel 'cause at 34in waist it was way too big.

I never ran the flotation pads inside it since I found them to be too stiff. As for the height I wore mine so the lower front buckle was below my belly button by about an inch.

Here's a pic of it. Pretty simple but it worked

Love that setup, Vince. Here is mine, mish-mash of pouches, but it works.

Digging your setups, guys. And +1 to what Vince said, although I like to run mine with the thinner flotation pads inside, but that's a matter of personal taste. Here's mine:

Kartoon, your welcome to drop by and try mine when/if you can spare the time. Or I could probably drag the rig to our Christmas party on the 17th, so you can play around with it. Oh, by the way, I still have your Aimpoint here.. :wink:

My eagle H Harness is slightly different and I'm not sure what designation it is. Its very comfortable though, and light weight. I've used my on mountain training and long range missions, carrying an Alice Pack or MAP. Depending on your load though it can get rear heavy, but you always arrange it to ride better.

You'll notice where the harness connects to the belt section that instead of having straps connecting, its a small MOLLE section for pistol mag pouches.

Thanks mate, always wondered why my H harness never showed, only the ones without the molle patch.

Damn, never realized Eagle is trying to sell the kit I have for 900... I'm selling it on EBay and no ones bid at 120.00..... guess people hate them?

Everyone has them because the AF got a bunch in OD while they were using BDUs, then got them in ACU/ABU when they phased in ABUs. So they practically gave away the OD ones, that's how I got mine.

I wouldn't say the webbing is 'better' than a chest rig, it just depends on your job. If you're on your feet for long periods, then I prefer webbing, but if you're motorized, then a chest rig makes for better ease of movement.

Here's my H-harness, it's set up for a regular field ex where I'm running around the ranges taking grids and bearings and then doing security afterward. I'm just trying to score some thin bungee at work to put around the left ammo pouches. The right side I use for my DAGR and other surveying kit, the left side is for ammo and bombs. Two Nalgene bottles at the rear and my butt pack for random pieces of clothing depending on weather and such.

The set I bought was sans flotation inserts but I just cut and sized pieces of camping mat to fit for comfort.

I should note that I took the hydro pack off in favor of a seperate Camelbak or daypack.

I'd image that a packed buttpack wouldn't be that sweet for mech work. Hell I even take off my molle belt when I drive around.
But I'd wish I was big boned\fat so that the h-harness would fit, it looks like a really comfy design.

The nice thing about the buttpack is that even when I am mechanized, I can just take it off and sling it off the dash.
