I bought a 40mm grenadier version of the LBV on Ebay for $25 and removed all of the pockets. Then, I bought some 1" Nylon webbing, some Nylon upholstery thead (strong stuff) and six Molle II RACK M4 Double Mag pouches (also off of Ebay). A lot of sowing later, I had three vertical Molle attachment straps on each panel to which I mounted three of the mag pouches (horizontally mounted similar to the SOMAV) to each side. It cost me around $120 total and has taken some serious abuse without any sign of failure. I decided to make it after seeing the SOMAV, but I did not want to pay $400 for it. Of course, my life doesn't depend on my gear and my choice would be different if it did.
