    Hi guys, I recently acquired a set of this unique S2000 pattern battle jacket.
    It is very different to the African Warrior stuff that is floating around.
    It seems to be very well made and I was told that there is some type of backpack that clips into this vest.
    There are no labels and it is slightly used.
    Can anyone can provide me with more info on this piece of kit?

    Not seen one of these before...very interesting bit of kit.

    Are these more recent issue?

    Indeed, very unique design but clearly has its basis with the P83 and Recce vests. Love it!

    Info i found out about this vest from a friend.

    "This was meant to be the standard infantry vest replacing the M83 Battle jacket, not used yet due to budget issues".

    Like the colouration, looks like a very modern design.
