    I had the same vest in DPM, it only lasted about a month before the pouches started to rip from the weight of the ammo and stores I was carrying, was expensive to buy in NZ as well lol.

    Thanks Dan.

    It's a shame these vests are so poorly made, they look the dog's nads, but clearly are not up to the job Laughing

    Still I only paid a couple of quid for it, no great shakes Wink

    Nice one, that's very interesting info, at 12000 bucks , I would be naming it all, in fact I'd be afraid to let it out of my sight, just in case I got charged for the bloody lot Wink

    I know, you could probably kit out a whole rifle company 20 - 30 years ago with 12k.
