    Bosnian Home-Made LBE? (originally posted by nkomo)

    One thing for sure, this piece appears to be home-made. I just recently bought this off of Ebay from a seller in Ohio. He claimed that it was a Bosnian made vest. He got it directly from Belgrade, Serbia and was supposedly captured during that nasty little civil war they had over there.
    Anyway, this vest is attached to a US ALICE belt. I don;t think that is correct, but that is the way I got it. When I first saw this vest, I thought the lower pockets were for an AKM magazine. When the vest arrived, the pockets were much too small to hold anything much bigger than a pistol magazine. The vest even has a place for a knife or machete on the back side. Has anyone ever seen a vest like this before? Can anyone verify that this was used by the Bosnians?
    The vest is sewn together with white thread. The owner has taken a black permanent marker and has outlined all the areas where the white thread can be seen. Very odd.

    Arch,

    Maybe the guy that made this saw Predator one time too many...
