Please Help - after a specific pack

I figured this was the best place to come... I am after a Mystery Ranch RATS medical pack (black). The catch is I need to ship it to Australia which I am having major problems sourcing one. Can anyone help? If no any recommendations for similar bags? Very keen on this specific bag though.

Must be discreet, medical specific, big enough for ALS equipment and comfortable to ruck.

TIA x

Edit: Spelling

Comtac 3’s soaked in rain during FTX

My comtacs got soaked during a super rainy ruck, didn’t notice till later during a night patrol but headset still works and is give the 3 tone low battery warning. When I try to use the on/off buttons nothing happens. Any quick fixes? I’ll be deploying in less then a week and don’t have supply that issues them

Civilian NIJ Level IV (SA) plates from V-Great?

Hey, has anyone had any experience with these claimed level IV (SA) ceramic plates from a company called V-Great? I've seen some YouTube videos about Chinese plates & they seem to hold up decent for the price, these plates are being sold quite cheap (compared to other options) close to me, I know there is no such good thing as cheap and good most of the time, however, just wondering if anyone's had any experience with this company?

I'm in voluntary service in my country so there's an extremely low likelihood of me being shot but I'd still like to have some sort of protection (I could get 2 of these plates for the price of one 3A plate).

What's wrong with this M9

I'm not well versed on the complete internals of this handgun, noticed this nub sticking out weird and I don't think it used to be like that. Anyone able to help ID the issue or anything relevant?

Shellback cummerbund armor

Finally got in the multi curve plates for my new shellback SF. Fits me much better than the banshee 2.0

It's got pouches for hard plates. And for a strip of soft armor.

Not sure I want hard plates.

But was also thinking of upgrading the Cummerbund to a beez elastic. Can you throw soft armor in the beez?

GBRS workout program

Has anyone tried their workout program? I’m currently building my garage gym and want to get back into working out but more of functional training. Figured their program is a good guide to get back into it.

But I want to get the equipment before I start it so I can maximize the 7 day trial.

Based on the videos, some bands, kettle bell, bench etc. anything else they use specific to the workout regiment?

Trex Arms AC1 vs Defense Mechanisms MECB Slick-ish Kit

Hello All, this is my first purchase of a plate carrier and oh boy has it been a rabbit hole. I have decided on my Highcom 4S17M plates (through Apex's' spring sale so thank you if you see this) however, my issue now is deciding on plate carriers. I was initially sold on the AC1 with their 3 flap placard and swapping the cummerbund with the DM Molle or elastic QD but Reddit is making me doubt my decision in favor of the probably more expensive DM MECB. I would appreciate some additional perspective to help me decide.

Spray painting peltor comtacs?

Hello.

Can I spray paint my peltor comtacs? Currently the price of a used OG green Comtac 5 is £200 but the price for a black one is £500, just wondering if it’s advisable to spray paint the OG green rather than spending another £300.

Thanks

Idiot civilian larper wants rig adivce

Skip the backstory:
_____________________________________

Hi. I'm cheap and impulsive. So I ended up with a surplus TAP rig, an AR500 Veritas plate carrier, and some ceramic plates. I love the TAP rig. The plate carrier is cool too, idk it holds plates and seems sturdy enough. But i don't know what I'm doing and the only reason i own this stuff is i like to pretend I'm deadly larping, dry firing, practice reloading, and general weapon handling. I told myself it's "just in case" but the reality is i think its cool stuff and have regret for never going into the miliary, I'm too old now. So I pretend and romanticize about something I'm sure some people take very seriously and do not appreciate people making it into a hobby.

So with the utmost respect for those who do it for real. And with absolute secrecy because no one in my life would understand why i like something like this or spend money on it, here I am. I would love to see the look on my family's face when the estate lawyer tells them about the hidden room in my house full of weapons, ammo, and now tactical gear (for real, its modest but pretty cool in there). But I digress. I'm not here to identify or justify (well maybe a little) I'm here for advice. Sorry about all that.

___________________________________

Here's my questions:

Is the TAP rig supposed to attached to a plate carrier? It looks like it with the buckles and snaps that came with it. If so, how? I'm having trouble finding specifics on it's intended use.
