    I'll happily admit this sort of kit is normally out my remit, but i had to take a few snaps:









    apologies for the feet, space was limited!

    Another incredible set.

    Cant be easy to store, or display .

    No worries about the feet, at least they sort of match with the kit...bounce

    Thanks for posting, are you allowed to say what the demonstration was? Only a couple of bits there look a bit out of place from what I know was in use fairly recently. Not saying it's wrong, just interested/puzzled Wink .

    Oh okay haha, it was at the main national armed forces day event in Nottingham a few weeks back, the gear was set up next to a bomb disposal demonstration but the chap was busy demonstrating a blast suit so i couldnt ask any questions, if i recall correctly there was a kayak just out of shot? It was pretty random to be fair but i was just drawn to the kit!

    I'd have been drawn to the kit too!  Some of that stuff has definitely been issue for SB, i.e. the 'twin jet' fins, black nomex suit, ProTec lid and the ISPL vest.  The resi, Kevlar lid, holster maybe not so...Wink  

    If the bloke showing it was an ATO that had been on attachment that might explain the differences.  Either way, thanks again for sticking it up, always good to see a bit of black!

    Was it 11 Regt? Don't they supply ATO's to Alpha Tp?

    Yep I believe they do.  Just for info, the blue valise on the lifejacket attached to the vest is the training version (I seem to recall), the operational one looks like this.  These vests are also used by FPGRM (or 43 Commando as they're now known).
