    Trial PECOC Molle Tan Webbing

    Post by sobota on Tue Jul 17, 2012 3:40 pm

    I had seen this floating on eBay for quite some time and finally snapped the other day and brought it from an MoD Disposals Contractor, interesting bit of kit, consisting of a yoke, molle hippo pad, belt, 2x double SA80 mag pouches and 2 utility pouches.





    Note there are no Pull The Dot fasteners, simply just a loop back of the webbing molle strap material.




    Notice on the yoke all 6 attachment straps are the same thickness whereas on traditional PLCE yokes the bottom two are thinner webbing. The label reads simply: 'YOKE, Name, No.'




    close up of female buckle on the utility pouches


    The female buckle is removable, I don't know if this is the specific reason for this but a logical one is that by making this clip removable troops would easily be able to replace broken ones? If you notice neither of the clips are sewn down allowing for easy removal. in my experience more often that not if a buckle breaks the item is just disposed of rather than repaired.


    just a close up of the molle strapping on the hip pad. I wonder why the top line is green? its a thicker weave than the other two strips of webbing, and MY GOODNESS is it tough to attach the pouches through! Made me work up a sweat!


    An evolution of utility pouches, it appears that the head shed opted for an 'if it isnt broken, dont fix it' policy on this one!



    If anyone wants any further pics or details please just ask!

    I will get them on at the weekend...I have the following in PECOC, Windproof, matching Shirt and Trousers (looks to be in a tropical shade) and another set of Shirt and Trousers with a different cut and different woodland colouring...more darker, I have also a Buffalo shirt....all of them are new or if they have been worn...very little !!

    I managed to acquire a full set of hybrid Webbing but this has been slashed up and i am in the middle of lovingly restoring it ! Smile With this I have the hybrid battle bag also and a Tan one...

    I have also a set of C95 trials pieces, a jacket which is strange, it has some kind material sewn on the arms which looks like something you would have on a NBC suit ?! I have matching trousers as well...I will dig these out and try get some pics on so people can comment...
