Our squadron had mostly (95%) issued Interceptor body armor (IBA) and Blackhawk Omega tac-vests, which, more or less, worked fine together. A few had the old style body armor and LBV-88s (the chest mag pouches, grenade pouches and that's it). Some by choice used the older LBE. Word from the boss was that MOLLE gear was in the works and already ordered. Then word comes down to have everyone shuffle through supply, resist the temptation to strangle the supply sgt (he's an idiot, the one we usually deal with) and switch to "the New Gear". Hopes running high, but realizing we'd been seeing a bunch of brand-spanking new LBV-88s on people....we went in. The entire squadron gets refitted with brand new, but old school LBV-88s. So now we have room for our ammo, and.....that's it. Carrying flashlights, line badges, etc means getting more ammo pouches or an admin pouch. Since I wear my gear attached to my IBA directly, this may not affect me, but being in a room with 30 ticked off cops is no fun. they might stop letting us attach straight to the IBA to be "uniform" before an inspection..... we'll see. Since they cost about $150 per vest I think, they could have refitted us with Tactical Tailor MAVs and MOLLE pouches (as some units have) for the same cost or less.......but..... yeah.
