  • Good Kit

    Here's a thread to discuss good or bad items of kit. What would you recommend others buy? What did you find useless?

        Keep up the Good Work. I've been after some good Kit for a while now, all you get Web wise is British stuff and I'm kinda fed up with the usual garb you get from them.

        A few Irish Army related pieces of Kit would be nice to see.

            OG Kit, New Webbing

            If I were to get chest rigs and/or assault vests, what colour would you pick? OG, Brit DPM (these are the easiest to get), Central European, US Woodland?

            Also, if I was to get some brand new OG PLCE, would people pay around the €100 mark for it?

                Decent Kit

                One of the most valuable pieces of kit I ever bought was a platypus hydration pack. Never used it on exercise, as the thing had a very inconviently bright colour. Still, makes it much easier to prevent dehydration, just keep on sipping.
                Take these men and women for your example.
                Like them, remember that posterity can only
                be for the free; that freedom is the sure
                possession of those who have the
                courage to defend it.
                ***************
                Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.
                ***************
                If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.

                  Hydration packs are on the way, I'm trialing a number of them now.

                  More pics are also on the way.

                    US Woodland would suit our dpm better than brit or og would..... but then again i have a love/hate thing with the german pattern!

                        Over the past months I have bought webbing (via Cushtac) and a basha (via the IMO Kit Store) and I most admitt that both were of very good quality and have both proved very useful when on the ground recently. The webbing was especially useful for FIBUA and Pot NCO`s course. The service was very prompt and I was kept informed all along the process.
                        So come on and support the store.

                        On the question of best kit Ive bought. I bought a pair of second hand british army assualt boots as I only had one pair of boots at the time (a pair of god damed awful 24b`s) They have been really good and give really good support to my ankles which some people know are shite at the best of times

                          The best bit of kit i have bought is a Wyvern daysack, it is big enough to carry all the kit you need for a day at the ranges like helmet, body armour, warm kit, scoff etc. You can also zip on the PLCE bergen side pouches which gives you 60 litres of space, enough for a weekend in the field if you have a small enough sleeping bag. I also have a Snugpak softie 6 sleeping bag which is ideal for the summer and when staying in camps. It is about 30cm long and 20cm wide in it's compression sack so doesn't take up much space in a bergen.
                          Prior preparation prevents piss poor performance.
