Tool fan eh? That might just push me over the edge into ordering one in the new year.
I'm trying out the Rackminus now with the Whisper Helium AR mag pouches. Really really slim and low profile setup . I can roll it all up and stuff it in my rifle bag, with mags. The rig itself feels very sturdy and comfortable. The only issue i'm finding right now is that the pouches are really tight for Pmags. Easy enough to remove, but much harder to re-insert (in case you're doing a tactical reload, or need to retain a mag). I've left the mags in the pouches for a while now and I think they've stretched out well enough. I also do find that the rig will ride up if it's not tight around the body if you're mags are tight in the pouches.
I installed some TACO pouches with ease (installing anything MOLLE/PAL is very easy with this rig) and they worked perfectly. Highly recommend this rig if you just want to run a very simple and lightweight chest rig.
