Look at my gains guys I'm, very proud of myself.

And my testosterone has most definitely increased and so has my sex drive just kidding.

Guys for legal reasons.

That was just a joke, I'm, gay.

Anyways, guys today, we're gonna be talking about some protection.

You know what I'm saying, but not just any type of freaking protection, all right the good type.

Yeah, all right because a lot of people underestimate plate carriers and [, __ ] and all that kind of stuff and did a funny thing.

Anyways, distraction, I'm, sorry, I have a attention disorder of some sort I, don't know what it is and I don't care.

But anyways, guys, remember looking at my uh, Interceptor, vest, yes, it's.

Actually, right here.

The one I brought from home that I've had for years, very beautiful used in Iraq Afghanistan.

And it was also made in DCU ACU khaki.

And you see it all, uh, the Marines using it during the invasion of Fallujah.

And all the way up to 2007 in Iraq I, don't know, when the switch came in for the new vest, I, don't know what those are called I just know this one's, the Interceptor vest.

And of course, the Marines, uh during early invasion of Iraq used the Woodland version despite them being in, uh desert environment, because you know it was such a quick movement.

But anyways guys is this a history lesson or are we here to look at some freaking awesome, new armor.

And my setup that I have set up all right? Guys, let's.

Take a close.


How do you develop? Anyways, guys, I already made the intro don't trick me.

But anyways, as you can see, I have everything up set up to similar to how I have my Interceptor wrist.

In fact, I actually have my Interceptor vest and I'll be grabbing it in a bit.

So we can compare it to what I've done.

And what changes I've done because I have learned [ __ ] throughout the years, uh, mainly from combat veterans obviously, I'm, not a combat veteran I've been saying this for [ __ ] years.

But that is besides the point anyways, guys as you can see right here right off the bat.

We got the magazine pouches right here in the front ready to reach.

But when you're in a pro position, what are you going to do you're going to have to lean sideways and pick up that Magno? Thank you I actually learned.

This really cool trick from an army vet is to put two double mag pouches right here.

And it creates a bit of a what do you call it a a bipod effect.

So it kind of stands, and then you can pick these up a lot easier.

And you got two more magazines right here.

So in total, you got three four, five, five magazines in total, you are well freaking armed freaking awesome, right? You can reload a lot.

And you can shoot a lot that's a lot of dead enemies.

You know what I'm saying and that's the point, okay, it's a thing about numbers.

But anyways, guys up here.

We have the grenade pouches, just like I had them in my Interceptor vest easy to reach up here.

And again, have the magazine pouch is very low.

So I could reach for my magazine and be able to reload.

Okay, you don't want them up here because then you're going to be all uncomfortable.

And your shoulders can be all weird and stretched out.

And eventually it causes injury in the long term in the long run, you know, you're gonna get a lot of morons and say, what are you busy? What do you do? You need to be as comfortable as [ __ ] possible because smooth is fast and fast and smooth.



Freaking cool over here.

I got an extra pocket for utensils, but you can use it for extra stuff.

Obviously, it's a 1911 mag pouch.

You could also use for the Beretta or what have you, you know, it's always good to have extra pockets in case, you find [ __ ] on the ground.

In fact, I actually knew this Iraq war, vet, uh, who fought well, obviously, Iraq value, fine Iraq, uh.

But he will carry, uh, Kalashnikov, mag, pouches and put his M4 magazines in there why? Because in case, he ran out of ammo or got in a nasty situation he could always carry, uh, AK mags.

Once you know from an enemy or whatnot.

But anyways, I got a phone call give me a second after I was really interrupted by toots.

The Chula.


What I was saying, um, yeah, AK mag, pouches use them for his M4.

But again, capture enemy magazines all right and actually have some Galil mag pouches that could fit either an 8K mag, a little mag, obviously or an M4 mag.

You know, you'll have to reach in there more but it's going to be worth it on the long run in case, you get into a nasty situation.

You know, there was a lot of times when uh Marines would pick up AKs from dead, uh, soldiers and actually use them I've actually seen footage of Marines using an rpk in Afghanistan rpk that's, not a NATO weapon.


So very interesting, very cool.



These are my shooting gloves.

I actually got these in boot camp.

Uh, we weren't supposed to get them, but I was like I, pulled off a sneaky and I was like, ah, drill.

Instructor ain't, gonna know so really cool memory very, uh, fundamental.

Obviously, you don't I used to have the Oakley Factory pilot gloves with the knuckle, uh, who are you gonna beat up with that? Okay, this although it's got sponge it's about the pound, you know, uh, the force is what's gonna break the [ __ ] skull.

You know what I'm saying so anyways, that's, pretty cool love.

These gloves for shooting strongly recommend them.

They are EXO iron clad.

So very cool, very awesome.


Over here I've never had a good experience with uh, camelbacks.

So I, personally, like to take canteens with me, almost a bit of a hipster so makes me cool out in the field, Brad, uh.

So freaking, awesome, uh, you know, I have seen Marine straight up just carry these on their chest or whatnot.

Obviously, easily, accessible.


Hear a lot about Marines just chugging water in the middle of combat while they're getting shot at, you know, they got to stay hydrated being hydrated it's, very under underestimated by a lot of people.

So [, __, ] hydrate, whether you're in the middle of a battlefield or you're just existing or chilling, you know, hydrate all your problems can be solved over here.

This is a bit of a mistake right here.

This is my dumping pouch.

So toss my magazines there because obviously you want to recycle [, __, ], you know, uh, taxpayer dollars cover the [ __ ] magazines, you know what I'm saying.

So you don't want to be keep on losing them or whatnot unless it's a very shitty and static situation.

You know, obviously your life is not worth a magazine that is probably not serialized and uh, no I'm.

Just kidding.

Shut up.

Anyways, but I'm gonna move this lower.

So it can be easily accessible because see how I have to be like this it's, very uncomfortable on the shoulder, I want to be as lazy as [ __ ] possible and very comfortable as possible all right.

So this is gonna have to move it's gonna need some adjustments over here.

Groin protector all right, I, actually sacrificed one of my side plates.

So I could protect my [ __, ] and balls.

This is my future.

My dick makes babies.

My dick is what creates the next [ __, ], Generation, all right I want to have kids I want to satisfy my wife so prioritize protecting my dick I'm, also a huge Modern, Warfare 2 fan.

So I have uh get some on there.

If you know the joke or not, you know, you know, all right classic Modern, Warfare 2 for PS3, not the new one all right.

So yeah, I prioritize protecting my nuts like all jokes.


This is my priority.

I gotta protect it.

All right? Um.

Anyways, back here, I have an extra pocket for rando's supplies or I could even decide to use the Camelback, throw a water bag in there and uh, start chugging water.


Hydration is key.

Uh, have you seen videos of Iraq boots melting on the concrete it's seriously, hot.

And if you're sweating that much you're wearing this plate carrier, you're, [, __, ], soaked, you need to [, __, ], hydrate, okay, but anyways.

So so far, that's, all I got for this I might attach more stuff later, maybe add a knife somewhere here or there.

But yeah, play carrier.

This is what I would use for combat and uh, [ __, ] hits the fan whether I'm at home.

This is in my trunk or whatnot.

Uh, this one's gonna pull up.

And this is what I'm gonna use and over here are the plates.

If I truly want to protect my [, __, ], aha, Pig, peepee joke, no I'm.

Just kidding.

Guys, uh.

But yeah, these they'll.

Protect you pretty good very awesome.

I don't have them installed, obviously because I'm just trying to show you, but anyways, guys, I'm gonna go ahead and pull out my intercept their best.

So that y'all can actually see it.

Oh, oh my cover.

So this is my old Interceptor vest.

What I used to rely on as you can see everything's low easily accessible.

These grenade pouches need to be moved up because I, don't know, uh from the looks of it.

It looks more comfortable to be able to push it like that.

And then you know, so I think that's all I have for you guys.

So, uh, you know, like subscribe mucho, love take care and remember, stay protective.

Protect your dick it's, the future, or maybe if you're a woman I, don't know how [ __ ] female ovaries work, but I'm, pretty sure you're gonna protect them and remain tactical, okay? Protect yourself and uh know how to use a [ __, ] gun.

Okay, you're like literally American.

And if you're British become American, I, don't know, all right.

Come on.

Go ahead and [, __ ] off.


So for the tocino looking good, yeah, pretty good I.

Bet you're mildly entertained.

Let me know if I should keep vlogging, or if I should just not Vlog I, don't, I, don't, [, __, ] know, most of y'all say, you're entertained by this [ __ ], but whatever it all just depends and I kind of point it low, though, mmm, it's, [, __, ], HD, HD.
