After trying several different weight systems I did not find one I liked so I made my own. The belt is made from 2" scuba webbing and the sholders are made from 2" nylon webbing. The pouches are made from red 1000D Courda and are mounted upside down. Each pouch uses a 2" QD Fastex style buckle. There are a couple different styles of these buckles and I chose ones that were easy to use even with dry gloves on. While they are not true "quick drop" weights they do fall free pretty easy. Since I built this set for myself each pouch was built to hold a 4-6lb soft weight.
