1070,



I would look into the "Hindi duty belt system" as a reference. Officer Robert Hindi has some pretty darn good ideas on duty belt set up.

I agree. Remember you want to be able to access all of your necesary equipment fast and want that in the front of you. What about a radio and taser? where will you put those items if your PD issues them?

From the buckle left to right:



mag pouch

taser

radio

flashlight

glove pouch

single cuff case

M&P 40 in bladetech wrs duty holster

keys

mace



I quit carrying an asp 12 years ago and quit carrying the second set of cuffs 9 years ago. I keep extra cuffs in the car with me, but I got enough stuff on the belt. I'm only a 36" waist, so room is tight. I run a velcro inner and outer belt to avoid using belt keepers. Hope this helps you out. As for the multitool, get yourself a good pocket knife and put it in your pocket. You can have to much stuff on your belt and it becomes uncomfortable. Just a thought.

This is my first post, and I know I'm bringing an old thread back to life, but I feel I have something to share, and add to the discussion. I'm a firm believer in belt keeper placement is as important as gear placement.



I'm a lefty but starting at the buckle, and going left towards my strong hand



Double mag pouch-- horizontal

Belt keeper

Service weapon

Belt keeper

Asp

Handcuff case at left back

Belt keeper

Handcuff case at right back

Radio

Belt keeper

Taser

Tactical flashlight holder

Pepper spray

Patrol car mic

Back to belt buckle



The first 2 belt keepers keep the holster in place for drawing my weapon. The 2nd belt keeper also keeps my baton away from my holster so it doesn't get in the way of rocking the weapon backwards while releasing it from the holster. A local Officer was killed when her baton blocked her weapon from drawing back so she couldn't shoot back.



In regards to whether or not you should carry a secondary flashlight I say not just yes, but F yes you should. Even day weenies should. At noon on a sunny day the interior of a house or apartment can be pitch black. If you left the car light in the car you're F'd. I carry a Gladius from the guys at Strategos. It's an awesome light even tho it's a battery hog, and I'm thinking about taking it to strategos to have it upgraded to one of their new LEDs



I also carry an Emerson Combat Karambit in my weak hand front pocket. In the event that someone goes for my weapon I can use my weak hand, and easily draw the Karambit which opens instantly when being drawn from my pocket. Without the need for fine motor skills.



Good luck with your career in L.E., and dominate every situation you're in so that no one can dominate you.

This set up works for me but it may not for you, I've got a 30" waist so my belt is full. I carry 3 extra sets of handcuffs in my patrol bag and an extra flashlight in my left cargo pocket (thank you 5.11 class b uniform).

-Mag Pouch

-OC Pouch

-Radio

-Flashlight (Strion LED)

-Cuff Case

-Glove Pouch

-ASP

-Holster (Glock 22)

-Sometimes I'll throw an extra cuff case up front depending on the night

From the buckle moving counter-clock wise:



Double mag pouch - 11 o'clock

Asp - 10

Radio - 9

OC - 8

Glove pouch - 6

Serpa holster on a thigh rig - 3

Double cuff case - 1:30

Cuff keys (tucked behind cuffs so they don't dangle) - 1:29



I work day shift so the 3 cell mag light stays in the patrol bag

Suspenders if your agency allows it. If not there's a new style of suspenders that go under your uniform shirt, but still connect to your belt. I think OMB Express has them but not positive.
