    I just spotted your location. You won't be seeing the inside of a vehicle for a long time.

      Why buy a set of webbing and a chest rig?Or why have to choose which is better.Get an assault vest.Compromise option,best of both worlds and besides all the major armies are going that route anyway.

His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

        Whatever you do don't buy Web-Tex, it's muck.

            Your probably right but why do you think so? sure the inf training will keep me plenty occupied!

            Thanks for the picture man, one queation though: would there not be a necessity for a larger pouch on the back rather than several smaller ones?
            These engines are the fastest in any tanks in the European Theater of Operations, forwards or backwards. You see, man, we like to feel we can get out of trouble, quicker than we got into it.

              It's down to personal preference really. You could replace two of the utility pouches with a respirator pouch:



              But some people feel that it's too unwieldy and bounces around a lot.

                  Since, as a rule, Web-Tex only makes Brit DPM PLCE you only have to look out for them when buying a bergen, vest or chest rig. In each case the label should clearly read Web-Tex.

                  Honest retailers will also describe their goods accurately, so ask them when buying or browsing.

                    and I think you could add the Viper made stuff aswell, since they are all basically made by the same company.

                          My best advice as to webbing set up is to luck at how the pdf or even the b.a do it(we have the same plce just a different colour) you wont go far wrong.The respirator haversack is never worn on the belt anymore except when used on inspection.Nearly all replace it with one or two utility pouches.

                            My kindney pouches are long gone from my webbing too, 4 ammo pouches and 5 waterbottle pouches, all held tight with a bunjee.

                              5waterbottle pouches!! what the hell do you carry in all that?

                              i'm a 34" inch waist and really only ever can get 3 (at a squeeze 4) utlility pouches on my belt without having ammo pouches covering my groin.

                                One of the pouches is empty most of the time, Its just somewhere to put extra ammo, food etc. But I've been meaning to set it up again, IE readjust pouches and remove others.
