  • Webbing

    Where is the best place to source PLCE Webbing in Dublin or should I go to PROTAC?

    Also should I buy DPM webbing or use OG webbing?

    Thanks,

      I am unsure of what you need to make a full set of webbing, could anyone post the full list. And a rought price to pay for a full set

      Also looking at the images on the shop from this site the colours don't seem to match up or is this just poor images being used. Is the shop stock new or used.

      Also is the Helmet advertised on the site as good as the one the Irish Army Issues?

        The webbing on sale is the exact same as the issued stuff. The webbing cost €12 a piece so the cost depends on how many parts you buy. The standard set up is as Kermit described it, that will cost you €72. Some people get an extra utility pouch with the standard set, which brings the cost up to €84.

        All webbing is grade 1 surplus, meaning it's in perfect working order.

        The helmet on offer is the BA issue kevlar. I think it's more comfoftable than the Izzie, it's certainly easier to wear peltor with it.

            What part 'the webbing on sale is the exact same as the issued stuff' don't you understand? Why would we sell webbing that doesn't match the current issue kit?

              The webbing is a good investment, and well worth the bucks, but find out from your buddies if you need to buy a helmet...My unit just get issued helmets in the rare occasion we need them.
              Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir"

                As a new member of 7th Bn you will not need a personel helmet or webbing yet. You will need a decent indoor sleeping bag, polishing kit and anything else your NCOs "suggest".

                The webbing can wait until after camp and see if you are going to stick with the RDF.

                The few times a helmet is required they will be issued. Good webing set up correctly and a proper fit is worth any money on a long march,tactics or field trainning. You do not need it yet.

                    no offence sparks, but i didnt ask you for an opinion.
                    i asked a question, FM was pretty quick with his usual witty answer, point was taken, so if you dont mind, go tell someone else what not to do.

                    Ill ask my NCOs in future about issues to do with RDF, clothing, regulations camps and equipment,


                    im only a recruit for a few weeks now and I fair enough I posted a lot of questions before i joined all about joining etc, im sorry if they bore or annoy you but usually at the time i posted i was looking for answers and thats because intelligent helpful answers are what i "usually" got from members here.
                    (thanks guys)

                      Lads, relax now. Dont turn on people when they give you some advice. When you first join any organisation it is a good idea to listen to people who have been in it a while. Sparks speaks a lot of sense, you would be amazed at the amount of drop outs after the first camp, there is also the issue of uniformity certain units will not allow you wear kit unless everyone has the same (this really just applies to pte's in my experience) so you may have your own PLCE but end up wearing 58 on the ground because others dont have PLCE.

                      Also, lads, vent your spleen's in the chat room, no need for sniping on the forum
                      You're even dumber than I tell people

                      You might have been infected but you never were a bore

                        Sparks is Right morpheus. Besides Recruits and 2*'s aren't allowed usually to wear anything but issued equipment so don't go rushing off buying mendl's and PLCE just yet. Especially when you haven't got a uniform yet. Your NCO's will advise you of what you need well in advance of you needing it.

                          Thanks Bailer, I appreciate you all taking time reply, but FM told me the story a few days ago, I can see the error of my ways, but please... can everyone stop flaming me to death on the issue now :(

                          ive no intention of buying any equipment til i pass a medical and get sworn in and go on the first camp and finally get to at least 2 star. and even then it will be just some camping equipment (ive an interest in camping and orienteering outside of RDF anyways) nothing like webbing etc at least until i figure out if a actually need it.
                          :p

                            Morpheus: was it only guys that helped with your questions? And if so, how do you know???

                            Good idea to wait till you at least get sworn in... :D

                              Morpheus, take the advice re not buying the helmet.

                              In fact I would hold off buying the webbing for a while at least until after your first camp. The 7bn should have enough pool stocks of PLCE for use on tactics. I know you are eager at the moment but people's minds changes after the first year. You can expect to loose at least 1/3 of your recruit platoon before September. So it would be a pity to have shelled out a couple of hundred euros and then have decided it wasn't for you. The longer you stay in and the further up the ranks you go you will start deciding to buy your own gear, at that stage you will be using it often enough to make it worth your while, you will also know what you need to buy understand the differences in quality. So really the only thing you would need immediatly are mess tins and KFS. (Before anybody starts jumping down my throat I consider polish, sewing kits and other items required for the maintenance of your uniform consumables)
