    I got a sheath for my 16 from Thrillbilly for my b-day, and I love this sheath.

    I got a large tek- lok for it, and I tried vertical carry, which I like, then i tried scout carry which I hate, and then I heard about ranger carry.

    I have no idea whatsoever what ranger carry is. Can someone tell me please?

    I wanna try out all the carry options I can so I can see which one works best for me.


    Oh, and Becker pics for your enjoyment.

    I am probably wrong, but is it inverted on the chest connected to the LBV?

    I've seen this mode in some pics.

    Hey bud, someone screwed up your order. That is a 17 not a 16 :D

    Back on topic:

    I believe Ranger carry is where it is inverted on your chest. At least that is what it seems to be from my slightly lacking google-fu this morning.

    I think some consider "Ranger Carry" the same as "Scout" carry.

    Thanks for all the quick replies guys.

    But i do find it interesting that everybody thinks it is a different thing...

    I know that, but the 3rd wasn't.

    The reason I don't believe Scout and Ranger are the same, is cause Scout is for people that spend long times laying prone. Rangers don't do that, they are a more tactical unit. (Trying to stay somewhat on topic :D)

    That said, I been carrying my 17 Ranger carry on my suspenders under my suit coat at work. (At least my understanding of what ranger carry is.) I also carry my 14 scout carry though.

    I believe Ranger carry is a chest carry (like what Cbear and leatherman said).

    What do you guys think of this idea: Chest rig with magnets under your dress shirt, with the 16/17 on top of the dress shirt, but under the jacket. Sheathless ranger carry!

    I am of the opinion that Ranger carry is indeed inverted on a chest rig.

    Flexxx carry is the way to go though. :D

    I ranger carry is what it's called inverted on your chest, that's how I carry my 9 with my backpack.


    I use the factory sheath with a small loop of paracord through the grommets near the bottom, then use a small carabiner to clip it to my shoulder strap. The sheath's belt loop goes on the backpack's belt.

    Or your credit cards if you keep your wallet in an inside suit coat pocket.
