    Trial PECOC DPM Body Armour Cover

    Post by sobota on Tue Jul 24, 2012 3:18 pm

    picked this up for what i see a bargain! dead happy with it despite the unfortunate slashing by the MoD, nevertheless im over the moon!




    note how the sides are held together like the Osprey Load Bearing Vest


    Waist strap and lumbar padding pouch like the old issue dpm assault vest. Unfortunately the label is unreadable


    the rear panel extends at the waist on the inside of the vest for the attachment of....


    These! pouches for a small ballistic plate to give extra side protection


    fortunately the label on these is legible



    in place


    the sides of the front panels can be disconnected and are done up via trusty old Velcro





    want to see anything else? just ask!

    Damned rare! Before I clicked on this I wondered if you might have got lucky enough to get a non-slashed example. So far I've not seen one, and in fact yours looks better than some of the others I've seen. With a few things strapped in you can hardly tell it was slashed up.

    Thanks Steve, the slashes have been somewhat repaired by the previous owner but in some places i might need to get my needle and thread out, when i saw this piece i didnt know the extent of the slashes but like you say most can be covered up with a few pouches and none of them seem to affect the integrity of the item, its officially one of my top prized pieces.

    I saw a couple of the desert tone ones for sale. They weren't slashed as much as chopped IIRC. So I think you got off kinda lightly Wink

    i didnt even know these prototypes existed until saw this on and did some research, id love to get a desert one too but like you say, most i imagine are either destroyed or slashed to within an inch of their lives Sad

    I've got the desert one, not too slashed (at least for the putside),
    but without the side plate.

    I'm still investigating about it's (and other trial body armour's) story.

    And the most exciting things is it was using the trial DDPM. Wink
    I believe there must be a original DPM version, and probably a Hybrid DPM one.

    Is there any possibility to put hard armour plates in? Except for the side pouches.

    yes there is, in the front there are two dump pouches with a piece of mesh material separating the pocket area and where the armour goes (it looks smaller in the photo, actul size is the whole of the front panel):



    and much like the osprey MK4 the base of the back panel can be opened up to allow access:
