    Fixed up an old loadout I once made, changed out a lot of stuff, and wanted to make it more complete, so here's what I came up with, hope you like it.

    Gear:

    M64 summer uniform
    M64 foul weather/winter uniform
    M51 (M1) helmet with camo net
    M71 belt
    M71 suspenders
    1 Nylon and 1 plasticized M71 magazine pouch (cheated with this a bit, 1 pouch is for FAL, the other for FNC)
    Late type C FN FAL bayonet
    M71 bayonet frog
    M71 canteen in pouch
    M71 multipurpose buttpack
    M71 tent halve in pouch
    M51 gasmask in bag
    M71 backpack
    M71? sleeping bag
    Trifold shovel in pouch
    Laced boots (M??)

    Nice complete kit - are there any markings on the bayonet and/or the sleeping bag?

    Thanks guys!
    Legendary is a big word though, some older kits are (mostly were, I fixed most mistakes) pretty rubbish, and I've had to do some extensive fixes, as is the case with this loadout, which is almost a completely different kit than it used to be.

    And the bayonet has no markings whatsoever. I bought it as Belgian a while ago, from a Belgian seller.

    The sleepingbag probably has a label inside, but I haven't unrolled it at all since I was lazy. It's the standard type sold on 2ehands.de by seller Polytra.

    Very nice display!
    I am putting together a similar loadout (Belgian late 80s), so far I only have the webbing with belt, suspenders and FN-fal magazinepouches. I have ordered a waterbottlepouch, respiratorpouch and shovelpouch which should be arriving via mail.
    I have a question about the tenthalve-pouch. I know a seller who claims he has for sale a Belgian tenthalve-pouch, but according to the seller it has no markings (pictures below). Does your tenthalve-pouch have any markings in it, like ABL or similar?

    Those tent pouches in PVC material are not normally marked. Actually, I don't think I have seen markings on any of the PVC-type equipment. The pouch in your photo looks to be a correct Belgian type.

    This guy has a huge stock of Belgian surplus: https://www.legerstockdebackere.be/

    I have bought some of the various types of Belgian tents there before.
