Systems started thinking about pursuing sponsors
we knew there was going to be a problem. All of us are
set in our ways and are serious about our gear and it
would take a lot to use something new. So we decided
to contact companies that made gear that we had been
using and recommending anyway.
One of the companies at the top of that list was The
Wilderness. Specifically their belts. All of us
were wearing them anyway.
After making contact with Wilderness
and telling them what MCS
was all about they were pleased to get onboard. Since
everyone already had Instructors belts we decided to
opt for the Frequent
I have to tell you that I was not totally sold on the
Flyer because of the Delrin loops instead
of the parachute rigger type hardware I had come to
know and love. Even though I hate to admit it, I was
wrong. This has become my favorite belt.
You can't tell by looking at my Frequent
Flyer that I have been wearing it everyday
since October 07'. It is nice and stiff and has
no problem supporting a pistol and spare magazines.
Too many people fail to understand that a good belt
is the platform of any carry system. A $500 pistol,
in a $100 holster on a $10 belt, you know the type.
The marketing behind the Frequent
Flyer is that because of the Delrin loops
it has no metal signature so you don't have to
remove it to pass through security when you fly.
The bottom line is whether you need to carry gear or
just hold your pants up and need one good belt, the
Flyer is the way to go.
A perfect example of Wilderness' customer service
is the fact that they will re-velcro a belt no matter
how old. You just have to send it to them and pay shipping.
