For competition the kydex models work best for most. If you go to a warbelt, a couple HSGI Tacos and a good retention type holster will work well.
No freakin' kidding. Even thigh holsters suck, much less trying to load 4-6 mags on a drop leg.
My padded belt currently holds an ESEE knife, double/double mag pouch, dump pouch, hydration, IFAK/blowout kit, and a G-Gode XST RTI holster. I started with a basic Blackhawk belt set (because they were fairly cheap, and I just wanted to try the concept out), but I have an HSGI SGPB inbound to replace it.
