    Cool webgear! It would be nice if you empty contents and take pics of them.

    I'm wondering if you have seen British's new universal DPM pattern on field equipment?

    Hi Merc, thanks for your comment, yes will definately empty out the contents and take some pics, probably do it in an hour or so, as for the Brit Universal DPM pattern on the field kit, no mate. Would still be in the trial stages I'm assuming therefore whichever Regiment has been chosen to conduct the trial will only have it. Actually talking of trialing kit many moons ago my battalion was chosen to trial the what is now Soldier 95 kit as we where A.M.F.(L) which involved going to Norway etc The MOD wanted to see how well it performed in the Arctic. Had a shirt and trousers right up until July this year when I gave them away to a Cadet as they didn't fit anymore!!!! Shocked

    Cool, thanks for sharing. I've always wondered what Brits would be carrying in their equipment.

    Not boring at all! It's always interesting seeing other people's load outs. Yours is certainly a practical ensemble - well equipped for a 'night out on belt kit'!

    Cheers guys....funnily enough it seems that belt kit now carries less as the men tend to rely on a daysack too, but I was always taught to have 24 hrs worth in your webbing, it was hard to break the habit, I use to have my wash kit in there too but that went into the bergan lid Very Happy got to be a compromise somewhere I suppose

    Actually guys it would be interesting if I could see the similarities between Brit, Oz and American belt kit contents is there any photos within the correct Country sections? That would be cool if there was
