    My MTP / Multicam

    Post by loski on Mon Jul 09, 2012 1:28 pm

    I have only recently entered into the MTP / Multicam thing here are my goodies

    1st a new MTP PCS shirt, origonaly going by the evilbay discription I thought the PCS shirt was an Helikon made example but it is an issue one.



    2nd a new pair of CS95 MTP trousers



    3rd is a Propper Multicam ACU shirt



    lastly for now is ADS operators cap



    I have included a photo of the ACU and PCS shirts as a comparison



    this is all for now but im shure there will be more to follow altho my wife is giving me evil looks when I mentioned that I want an MTP PCS smock.

    Very nice Graham, I have yet to get into PCS, I collected everything I could in the S95/MTP original versions, traded a lot of it off for some "foreign" camo then thought that was it ..then PCS came along....Oh,Lord where will it end.

    I do like the design features of PCS, very ...err U.S. in style I guess, why not, we nicked their camo might as well go the whole hog with styling too.

    I look forward to seeing what else you get ( just don't let on too the missus) Wink

    Hi Gary im still a DPM boy but there is no fighting progress I love the PCS shirt design ACU with british improvments, I'm not too keen on the PCS trousers prefer the CS95 strides. My perfect idea of camo would be a PCS cut shirt and a pair of CS95 trousers with an 80's cut SAS windproof smock all in 70's print DPM fabric ally or what.
    Btw Gary no point trying to hide new stuff from the wife she will find it i think she can smell it.

    No worries Mate, I too will always be a fan of DPM too.

    And on a slightly different note, I am convinced the woman species can smell new additions from a thousand feet, in fact I may well create a scientific experiment, to prove this theory, this is my plan.

    1.Go out ,and buy some surplus,I feel at this stage, I will not be too specific on pattern or nation.

    2. Sneak the for-said surplus into the family abode, perhaps in a plastic bag to mask the "Army-crap-smell".

    3. I will then surreptitiously attempt to climb the loft ladder, and deposit the supplies into the reception area of the loft space, where it will be classified and suitably stored at a later date, I suspect that a good time do this part would be perhaps when the woman is watching some asinine meaningless crap on TV, or better still on the phone to one of her fellow species, talking about woman stuff...N.B. I will remember to fully lubricate the rungs on the ladder with some suitable oily stuff, to create a stealthy access to the loft area.

    4. Once the access has been successful, and this part of the experiment has been fulfilled, I will monitor the likely feedback in the loft hatch space, and await for the sound I most resent to hear, which generally goes something like " Gary...'ave you bought more of that Army crap, how much do you need, I just don't understand it,and it stinks, my Mum said so too, she popped in for coffee the other morning ,and she said your house smells damp, I said to her no Mum the house is fine, it's HIS army crap it's stinking the house out...blah,blah.....blah....Gary are you listen'..blah...blah.

    5. At this stage I will gently close the loft hatch, crack open a beer , and smile lovingly at my new additions, like they were the most beautiful treasures a man could own.



    Whatcha reckon is it worth a go Twisted Evil

    Hi Gary
    this sounds just like the kind of statement my ball and chain would make just insert Graham in place of Garry prehaps our wives are related which generally goes something like " Gary...'ave you bought more of that Army crap, how much do you need, I just don't understand it,and it stinks, my Mum said so too, she popped in for coffee the other morning ,and she said your house smells damp, I said to her no Mum the house is fine, it's HIS army crap it's stinking the house out...blah,blah.....blah....Gary are you listen'..blah...blah.

    I recon its worth a go just to see if the female of the species can smell mil surplus in a sealed container.
    the result would be intresting to say the least

    Excellent !!!, you have inspired me to continue this scientific process, to discover and finally prove to the scientific community that, Yes !! woman can indeed smell surplus in hermatically sealed containers, and even identify how much the army crap costs...or that they are good at reading a collectors bank statement...doh scratch Twisted Evil

    The MTP Crow cap arrived in this mornings post

    On closer Inspection the basic design of the cap has'nt changed from the earlier version
    Whereas the older DPM cap is lined with plain green fabric and the neck flap is lined with kahki blanked fabric,there is a mesh ventelation gromet on either side of the cap and eyelet to fit a cap badge to the front of the cap.
    The new MTP cap is constructed from MTP fabric including the lining and altho the neck flap is retaind it is no longer lined with the blanket fabric the mesh ventilation gormets on either side of the cap but the eyelet on the front has been done away with, I have included a photo of each for comparison
