In the midst of equal amounts of rain and mosquitoes, I managed to get some pictures of it all together. Heading to a rec game on the 28th, I'll hopefully get some rep pictures there. Going to get a better balaclava for summer (Under Armour cold gear sucks in the heat), and somewhere down the line a more correct AKMS w/ PBS-1. (For those not aware, I'm doing a loose Russian Spetsnaz impression)

Heck, those suits were not even designed to last very long to begin with. It is a neat piece though, as even with the variety of dyes, that particular part looks like the more modern commercial productions, if it weren't for it being made of the same burlap-like cotton material (? about that). KZS suits were quite popular for a long time, you see pictures of various detachments wearing the tops often over other uniforms. I assume you have something covering most of your skin underneath Da Vinci? They did not make those sets with non-itchiness in mind.
One of these days I will get all my setups pictured. No good methods at home though.

You don't see too many support gunner loads outs these days. I guess that inspired me to put mine up. Its nothing special, basically I took a bunch of elements I saw from different RS pictures and combined them to make a functional heavy loadout. Just ripped apart my nice multicam last weekend, so pictures seem a little retro with the basic woodland. EDIT- Ignore orange tip, have not bothered to change it.
I'd advise dropping the middle pouch and sticking to just the sides with one SAW pouch on each side. You'll find that going in the prone with box mags on the front of your rig (especially there) will result in you being angled towards the ground and it'll put serious strain on your neck after a few hours, would also probably switch the IR chemlight out for an MS2000. Other than that a sling, heat shield, and some cool guy boots and you'd be looking real good.
