    Thanks Mate.

    Well I got the butt pack and canteen holders as part of a Trade.

    The belt and Ammo pouches +suspenders I bought so in total probably about £50.

    Which was cheap I guess for this era kit Question

    Thanks for looking Mate Wink

    Plus the grenade pouches on the sides of the Ammo pouches.

    I have managed to collect a few more pouches for this webbing, so will post them soon.

    Some are mystery to me so hopefully someone can help with Id'ing them for me Wink

    Throw it out there if you have any questions on it. After 22 years of wearing the stuff I'm a bit knowledgeable. But still find some items that make me scratch my head from time to time.

    The vest is one of the earlier models if I remember correct. The later models had slanted magzine pouches instead of straight vertical ones.

    Agreed. I think the nomenclature was Tactical Load Bearing Vest (TLBV). The later ones with the slanted pouches on a mesh base were known as the ETLBV (Enhanced TLBV).

    Double agreed, you are correct about the nomenclature, also forgot to add that the shotgun pouch is not very common, and the magazine pouch is an aftermarket purchased item.

    Nice stuff, the NZ Army Used the US made LC - 2 Suspenders,web belts, FFD pouches, and waterbottles CC & pouches from the mid 80's to the early 90's until we changed over to the Korean made knock offs, if you knew the Company Quarter Master he would let you rumage through the bins to find the US made webbing.
