Blackhawk Ind. – Enhanced Commando Recon Harness

Blackhawk`s Enhanced Commando Recon Harness is quiet in use for some time now.
After a handful of years in service, you`ll have seen it almost anywhere in action.
Ok, it`s not as sexy and often seen as many other rigs, but i think it`s really worth talking about it because you can get hold of it really cheap these days!

In US ranks of service, it is used by…

e.g. Marines,

PJs,

US Army,

I think it`s interesting to see some more shots from soldiers using this carrier on their daily patrols and missions. Here we go with a US ARMY Grunt loadout:

2 x BHI Nalgene/GP Pouches
1 x Large BHI Utility/IFAK/Bleeder
1 x BHI Double Mag pouch (x4 mags)
1 x BHI Double Frag
1 x BHI Starcluster/Flare Pouch
1 x Spec ops Radio pouch
1 x Spec ops flashlight pouch

Another one in UCP (Front- and Backside):

In the next picture you`ll see a fine US Army Medic that was taking pictures from his BHI setup. These nice photographs are very detailed, so i hope you`ll get a good understanding of his loadout! 🙂 (He uses 2 utility pouches, 3 frag pouches, 1 smoke pouch and 2 flashbang pouches on his rig)

Details of his setup – from left to right: (click to enlarge)

A roll of 3 inch tape
3x Hemcon’s
1 BLAST bandage from TacMed Solutions
1 OLAES bandage from TacMed Solutions
2x Rolls of Kerlix
1 pair of gloves
1 SOG Seal Pup

Compass
2x One handed tourniquets
3x Saline lock kits
Petzl Carabiner for overflow mag retention or hanging IV’s

Green Smoke
Gerber
Sharpening Stone
“Smiley” frag grenade

PVS-14’s
Rhino Mount
Write in the rain book
CR123’s, AA’s and AAA’s

…and last but not least his zippered compartment in the middle:

2x 14ga Angiocath’s
1 x speed loader
1 King LT size 4
1 bag of Ibuprofen 800mg
1 bag of Acetaminophen 500 mg
2x RUSCH nasopharyngeal airways
1 Oropharyngeal airway
1 15mg Morphine auto-injector

9 mags total, 4 of them PMAG’s. Tracer/ball until the last 3 which are all Tracer
1 set Trauma shears

Now you got an idea what a “Real World” BHI Enhanced Commando Recon Harness could look like. In a few days another airsoftin` weekend is about to begin, so i decided to assemble such a rig myself! Enjoy!

Yes, yeah, i know! 😉 Why is my antenna pointing so much in the air?
Because i`ll play in an area where i have no trouble wearing an antenna like this and it reminds me of old flag bearers/ japanese banners on Samurai backs… Hahahaha!
Let`s get them boys – ODA Operators lead the way! 😎

  1. Nice loadout. Blackhawk gear normally gets maligned by geardos and purists, but you make it look good. Thanks for researching real-world loadouts and showing us what you did (just bought one in Coyote Tan because of this writeup!).

  2. I see u use M4 mags.

    If i want to load my chest rig with mags they hardly fit in their pouches.
    Do you also have that problem?
    If so, what did u do to fix that problem?

    Cheers

    • I never had a problem with that (because i bought it used already?).
      The mags sit tight but i had no issues getting them in or out (and only with one hand, too)!
      Perhaps it`s getting better over time… (not only use it, abuse it!)
      All the best 🙂
