    No need for a double post, broski :p.

    Besides the SOTech Callahan plate carrier, which I haven't heard of being used much or at all in US SOF, you have some really good potential for a pandora's box of impressions. Are you interested in a specific one?

    No not a specific one, I am using it as kind of a throw together loadout right now, sometimes I throw on my bdus with it. I didn't know if anyone had any ideas of something this could sort of morph into. I thought about doing maybe a pj or sf type kit but I didn't want to get a whole new carrier cause I really like the Callahan.

    I personally have no recollection of seeing or hearing of US SOF using the callahan, but regardless your loadout looks good. Perhaps Knief or JohnGol have heard of it being used.

    I have heard of them using it and here's a few pics. The pics look very legit especially the first and 2nd ones. What do you think?

    I would normally give you a super-special Grin-flavored blessing but they all seem to be in khaki... But whatever...

    Oh holy crap I thought it was in MC xD. Well then, you have my approval. It would work with a number of loadouts!

    Yeah I got khaki so I could wear it with pretty much anything, all I need for it is a MAP pack and soft armor inserts, I run it with my level 3+ plates now for real steel shooting.

    Ah cool. Khaki is a great colour to get a rig in. I'm actually in the process of trying to obtain an MJK EPC right now.

    I think I will try to turn this into a loose army SF loadout I think I will do a 18d kit so I will need my SOTECH mission go bag with all my medical stuff, maybe a stomp ii, prc 148, comtac ii, ptt, and maybe a safariland 6004 belt mounted or a serpa. Anything else? Maybe knief has some better insight.

    Nice rig, I like my Callahan cause it also converts to a chest rig

    If you give me some time I'll try to find about what year they used the callahan and I can tell you what you'll need for a kit. One thing's for certain, I haven't seen them using Multicam. So far, I've only found reference pictures with DCU's and non-camouflage clothing.

    Actually I know For certain they have been using multicam since at least '09, that I confirmed with a green beret I met at fort Bragg this summer

    Can you post a link to your type callahan o have been looking for one. Sorry don't mean to thread jack..... Also I believe that you could pull off a loose SOF impression.

    I don't believe a Callahan will really work, you cant really call it a SOF Impression, even loosely.
