    Trial PECOC / 'Hybrid' Ammunition Grab Bag

    Post by sobota on Mon Jun 18, 2012 9:57 am

    I haven't been collecting a lot recently due to exams and a lack of finance, however, now I'm back in the swing of things and present my trial PECOC, or 'Hybrid' pattern ammunition bag. Its obviously quite dusty and has clearly seen use in trials or theatre or both?

















    I was surprised to see that the item has an NSN?




    the strap for the hybrid bag is significantly thinner than that of the MTP bag


    hybrid strap left compared to the desert strap, same material?






    now, i'll hold my hands up and say im awful at kit comparisons however i believe these shapes match (roughly)?

    Are these things growing on trees in the UK?

    In that case you may want to buy in bulk, as I'm sure I'm not the only person interested in the PECOC pattern! What a Face

    Very cool George, I really like your man bag in Pecoc DPM pattern, and find it preferable to MTP, I don't know why this didn't make it through trials and become the British Armed forces camo for the 21st century,at least it would have easily recognisable as a BRITISH pattern still, why the MoD chose MTP is beyond me, Politics I deeply suspect... bloody Politics comes into everything Suspect !!!

    Thanks Gary, I see where you're coming from when you say that the PECOC pattern could have easily been recognised as being worn by the Brits, I WISH I knew what went on behind the scenes in trials and the like, but I suppose its just another one of those things we will never know? Question

    No worries Mate, what I should said in my earlier post is that MTP is a hybrid no nation look now, whereas Pecoc would be instantly recognisable as a British designed and often copied pattern, honestly mate, I was browsing the web the other day, and came across some ref pics of some soldiers/Squaddies?? , and it took a while for me to work out which nationality they represented...

    Long live DPM...sadly it's now a blended down tenuously linked Pattern Crying or Very sad

    Love that pattern, I'm searching an osprey cover in that pattern from about a couple of years, but I think will be only a dream Sad

    The bits of current 'MTP' webbing that i have seem to me to have the same colouring as the so-called hybrid stuff. Only the nylon stuff mind - not the cloth.

    Very confusing scratch

    I have seen a hybrid bergan with rocket pouches for a hundred quid, very nice. I also saw a chap selling the battle bags - he had two brand new and listed them on eBay for £20 each and neither sold... I nearly got them but not my cup of tea.
