    Nov 1, 2012, 11:13 AM - Sidearm/holster weight #1

    So I've suited up my ESB build a few times now and one thing that stands out is how cantered my ammo belt becomes with the sidearm attached (its combined weight makes the belt slide down pretty severely from what I've seen in the pics I've taken).

    Has anyone attached the nemrod holster to either the jetpack harness belt, or another belt entirely to avoid this?

    Judging by this image the holster strap goes under the ammo belt and it seems that is attached to the jetpack harness:

    Ah, good catch, Raf! I read a few threads prior to suiting up and most mentioned attaching the holster to the ammo belt. I should have gone back to the ref photos!

    Thanks a bunch -- once again!

    Huh..i never saw that! Cant really see exactly how it looks to be done...it looks like its attached to, or under the girth belt. My holster sits low as it is. the tip of the sidearm hits my knee armor constantly. The Harness is way higher than that. Is there something added to the holster loop and that is attached to the harness?

    I have mine with the ammo belt running through the loop like normal,but I added a snap on the back of the loop and a snap on the jumpsuit that it attches to. It helps keep the ammo belt in place and keep the weight of the holster/sidearm off the belt.

    This is something I've been wondering about for a while. I believe the holster actually hangs on the girth belt, which would account for the way the belt slants in a lot of ESB pics.
