    Bolle goggles operate in the same manner as ESS ones; strap adjustment & lens changing is the same on both brands.

    It's like saying Nike is better than Reebok, or Coke is better than Pepsi - it's a matter of personal preference.

    Green Lowe Alpine Dryflo

    Was in the Outdoor Adventure Store in Dublin at the weekend looking for Lowe Alpine Dryflo T-Shirts in green. They told me they don't have them at the moment cos Lowe Alpine are only contracted to supply them to the Army. The shop assistant said they will prolly get them in eventually cos there's a big demand.

    Anyway does anyone know anywhere where you can buy Dryflo T-Shirts in green?

    The Tech T's and Dry Flo are both excellent, the latter being the better of the two.

    I know that SASS in the UK do the hooped tents, dunno if this is what
    you're talking about or not... Maybe FMolloy will get 'em in the store, they'd
    be a sight better than pitching a tent using a poncho, anyway...

    Had the idea of wearing kneepads on tactics. Haven't gotten the chance to try it out yet, has anybody tried it?

    I use them for FIBUA but I don't see the point when you are in a field. They'd probably come off when you're crawling.

    As for hooped bivvi's, good ones ain't cheap, you're looking at around €150.

    Hooped bivi - try a cheap 1 man tent, you can fit all your kit it in, but I prefer the basha/poncho and light small civvy green sleeping bag with bivi bag.

    As for knee pads, i know of people who have sewn "Snickers" knee pads from builders work trousers into their combat trousers.

    i had to live in a one man tent for a good while on patrols and after a while its not comfortable, mozie dome and basha are perfect for dry weather and simply use a bivie bag for wet

    What the hell is that? Google isn't producing any results for a lowe alpine balli.

    I wore one(shemagh) in Kilworth during the recent cold snap during a day on the range(snow included),and apart from the odd bit of annoying fluff in the mouth,it was fantastic.

    I bought mine from the IMO store...
