Lovely pics George. Amazes me the MOD are still churning all this out seen as its obsolete with Virtus... I can only presume contracts were signed and production started on the DCC, PLCE and NI Packs before Virtus is now being deployed.
If Virtus is expensive I'd expect to see a two tier system of issue where older kit, the PRI and NI patrol sacks, the bergen continue to be issued to the Adaptive Forces units of the reserve. My son is in The Rifles and their main patrol sack is the DPM NI Pack, they have the PRI Multicam but on exercise are told to use the older pack.
