    What's a fair price ? Does it ride well with PLCE because we still don't have IPLCS.... poo

    Trell I have an OG Version of the saracen. Its a long back bag. But I've found with a bit adjustment its on top of webbing. It's a lot more fomfortable than the PLCE Issue bag. It also takes the issue rocket pouches.

    The waist belt on the Saracen is designed to spread the load of the Bergen between hips and shoulders.

    Kit Corner: Swap or Sell

    Right here goes(Again) A thread where you can sell or swap any unwanted kit.
    First a few ground rules:

    1/ NO item of DF issued kit is EVER to be offered for sale or swap here.This applies whether YOU were issued said item or not.Breaking this rule will result in the offending post being removed and serious sanction being taken against the poster.You have been warned!

    2/ This thread is for the sale or swap of military related kit,camping kit included, as that has some Military uses.Not for the sale or swap of your old hubcaps or Barry Manilow collection.Take that stuff to Ebay.OK.

    3/ If you are interested in a item of kit advertised.Post you interest in this thread then take it to PM's.

    4/ The Site staff are NOT responsible for deals going good ,bad or indifferent.We don't want to know your business unless it involves the site being brought into disrepute and by that I mean no PM's to site staff whingeing that the Pouch you bought isn't the right shade of DPM etc.It's you business keep it that way.

    So.In short.Keep the P.A' s and solicitors from our door.Act honorably when it comes to making deals and dont F**k it up for the rest of us!

    Now.Who is first?

    Suppose I'll start....
    (A recent trip to the mechanics has prompted me to sell a few bits.)


    DPM Shortback PLCE Bergan, complete with side/rocket pouches (no yoke). This has been my bergan for the last 12 years. Selling because I have a new bergan now. The waist belt has been cut away and there's small hole on the bottom of the exterior front pouch courtesy of an E-Tool. Other than that, it's absolutely solid. My name is written on it, hence the black mark.

    SOLD


    MOLLE ACU First Aid pouch. Ideal utility/LMG pouch. Pretty much brand new, never used. Was going to spray it and add it to my stock of pouches, decided to sell instead.

    SOLD


    MICH style airsoft helmet. I think it's made of fibre glass. The shape is ideal for wearing peltors/active ear defence/headsets. Heavy enough to pass off as the real thing, not that I'd ever suggest wearing an airsoft helmet for military training because the issued helmet doesn't accommodate peltors and alike.

    SOLD

    I might have a few more things, will check the shed some other day.

    Prices not inclusive of P&P. Please PM if interested.

    I have A Protac Irish DPM chest rig. Used once, during a Corps concentration, and quite pleased with it. It does what it says on the tin. Three ammo pouches up front, with plastic clip fastners that Mr Protac loves, instead of the silent locks found on PLCE. Map pocket behind them, closed with two stud fasteners. Utility pouches at each side, large enough to accomodate a 58 Pat water bottle, again with plastic clip fasteners and Velcro.
    I bought it in 2007 or thereabouts for €90. It currently takes up valuable wardrobe space. Shortly to appear on ebay.




    Any offers

    While taking out the Chest Rig to photograph it, remembered(fell over) an old german Army Sleeping bag. The ones with the waterproof outer liner, and sleeves. Weighs a ton. Most uncomfortable too.if you kept your arm inside the sleeves and turned during the night, it was next to impossible to get out of them. The theory was you could engage the enemy while still in the comfort of your green maggot.


    I'm willing to give it away, to free up the space. Will deliver to most places in greater cork area.

    Think I have one of these somewhere too, great bit of kit, albeit a bit bulky

    The people of England have been led in Mesopotamia into a trap from which it will be hard to escape with dignity and honour. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. The Baghdad communiqués are belated, insincere, incomplete.....It is a disgrace to our imperial record, and may soon be too inflamed for any ordinary cure.We are to-day not far from a disaster.

    OK Smith it’s Colonel Decker. I hate it when a plan comes together. You’re surrounded. I want you and Peck and Baracus, to throw out your weapons, all the ration packs you stole and come out with your hands up. You have fifteen seconds.
