    The yoke, belt and respirator pouch are PLCE, the rest isn't.

    Did I say you did? I was just pointing out a fact, given that other posters have been unsure about what's on sale down there.

    The ammo Pouches look like Protac, which is not surprising as:

    they're not the protac ones, they're double ammo pouches, but they don't have the insert to seperate the two mags, whereas the protac ones do, in my mind, for fifty bucks you can't go wrong with it even if it does fall apart after a few months, it's better than spending a small fortune on webtex and having it fall apart in a few months.

    I got the Midleton stuff (The shop is called is called Eureka) a few years ago. Since then I have bought a few bits and pieces and webbing sets for friends. The Stuff is NOT Webtex. It is ex-Brit army stuff. Some of it is in very poor condition.

    They seem to have got a new lot in recently. There isn't much but if you look around you can get a fairly good set together.

    btw who ever laid the flooring in the photo should be shot.....

    having laid out a few quid a few years back on brits DPM webbing and added a few//three oversize pouches from webtex..used the rig on the ground a lot...well happy...and all for under 100e..

    have an Artkis chestrig as well...great bit of kit..

    the only way to know is go out and work with the issue be it plce or 58 pattern and learn and then build on what you need believe it or not items of 58 pattern are still better than there alleged successors....the water bottle and carrier has still to be improved on..the left hand pouch with built in bayonet frog....

    Combat and survival mag ran a seris of articles on 58 pattern a few months ago... very informative..
    Time for another break I think......

    new gear?

    I believe the pdf have or are about to adopt a new webbing system(actually anyone have any pictures?), i heard a rumour that the rdf would be getting the old plce gear to replace our 58's, any truth to this?

    Rdf will recieve the old plce to replace the 58 ptn.

    Keep your posts on-topic. If you want to discuss new kit & when it's coming in you can do so in the 'new equipment' thread, which can be found in the Army sub-forum.

    I'm not directing it at anyone, I'm just reminding 'the community' of what this thread's about.

    Putting together plce

    Just got a set of plce from the store, seems to be great stuff,now if only there was a tactics weekend coming up....!

    Having a bit of difficulty putting the bloody thing together properly though, I have a few questions if anyone can help.

    1) The 2 rectangle metal clips in the middle of the belt, are these of attaching a poncho or for the rear straps of the yoke?( or both?)

    3) Should those clips be faced up or down on the belt?

    2) Should the male end of the front buckle be on the left or right side(given that im right handed)

    These may be completely obvious questions but i just cant figure it!

    cheers, thats what i figured for Q's 1 and 2 but when i went to attach the pouchs etc i found that the holes on the inside of the belt for securing the tongues(well thats what i call them!) on the pouches where upside down (i.e one side would take the plastic tongue and the other wouldnt because there all sewn almost closed thus lecing the pouchs attached upside down) any suggetions?

    try and get the metal clips of the 58 pattern webbing and use them on your yoke

    this will allow you to clip te yoke onto the webbing

    make sure you black tape it securely to prevent rattling


    as for the holey things on the belt that the semi circular bit from the pouch goes into

    get a very warm and damp cloth- leave it over the holey things

    then get a knitting needle and removing the cloth insert the knitting needle into the now pliable holey thing

    once the hole is enlarged put the semi circular bits into it

    then with a big pliars try and crimp of the metaly things

    Risk Assesment
    Get your mammy to carefully put the hot damp cloth onto the belt

    at no stage should you run with a hot damp cloth

    further get your granny to enlarge the hole with the knitting needle

    knitting needle should NOT be inserted into your eye or any part of your body

    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

    Im not too sure about pulling threads out of my lovely and immaculate new webbing, i was kinda of the opinion that somehow the securing holes for the pouchs was sewn in upside down into the belt.


    As for running with a damp cloth i never made the connection between the 2nd degree burns and the hot cloth before, man this web-site is the dogs bo**ox!

    I have seen the future and its shite


    and your not actually removing threads ( the evidence of this was the lack of risk assement for thread removal)

    your just enlarging the hole
