    Web-Tex Vest

    I bought one a good while ago (I cant say where as I will be dragged up against a wall and shot by a moderator). {Mod-spare us the martyr syndrome}

    I have used it a lot and it is the mutts nuts. Still in good nick and better than PLCE by miles.

      Webtex in general is looked down as being of a lower quality than a lot of other gear. It's cheap, but only through shoddy manufacture. Some people seem to get lucky though. You hear of lads in the BA buying a webtex vest that falls apart after 2 weeks, and others who buy one and it lasts years. I know that FMolloy had a lot of problems with webtex bergens falling apart, and does not supply them any more as a result

      You should bear in mind that webtex gear is aimed towards Army Cadets, which is a youth organisation.

          Bought a webtex vest about a year and a half ago. Stiil in good condition despite a lot of use during exercises. Never had any trouble with it.

            Web-tex webbing is muck, save up & buy a proper vest.

              moneys no object thankfully . some not so subtle hinting is going on that any members of the unit who see themselves staying active should buy one and there would be uniformity kitwise .

              so if not this one , which would you recommend ??

                The problem we have is the pattern, only Protac make stuff in Irish pattern. The closest patterns to Irish DPM is Central European (French) and US Woodland.

                So if you want stuff in Irish DPM you buy Protac. If you want stuff in either of the other patterns you've more choice. Arktis make good stuff, and I'm not the only one who sells it before somebody jumps down my throat. There's also US companies like Eagle, Tactical Tailor & SO Tech.

                  If you're not bothered about the pattern, there's loads of UK companies doing stuff in Brit DPM - SASS do bomb-proof stuff, as do CQC who make the issue stuff.

                      That's all I've got at the moment, there should be more to follow later in the year.

                            Would wearing webbing (either 58 or PLCE) not give your unit uniformity with the rest of the DF?
