    Time for more strange stuff!

    But first a simple beret of a guards unit rom the 80's.

    And a Welsh guards beret badge, also an older type.

    And then the strange stuff. A trials P58 webbing made out of nylon. Also known as 1958 pattern mk2. Sadly some parts are missing.

    Time for some new bits of gear again.

    First an SAS droploop AR15 magazinepouch.

    Then a very late type Combat Body Armour Mk2, I call it the 3rd type as it seems to be the 3rd major variation.

    Then a pair of GS combat gloves, this time the late type without knucklepad.

    Very true, which is why I've delayed this project for a very long time, only now I start to find some parts of it. I also have the knifepouch on the way right now

    Some more British kit again, including 1 very weird lot, which I'll post first.

    USMC Scalable Plate Carrier which has allegedly been used by a British guy.
    Just the British flagpatch, Warrior radiopouch and the brighter green single opentop magpouch are British, the rest is not.
    The guy has added a lot of stuff to the vest though, Shitty padding around the shoulders Condor sideplatepouches with unknown brand
    steel sideplates, a number of Condor magpouches, a tourniquet within a shoulderstrap, a Blackhawk sling which has been made 1-point
    with an S-karabiner, a black strap that can be pulled out of the MOLLE straps that can then be used as 2 draghandles instead of just the
    handle integrated on the vest, and some comms wires have been internally routed through the vest's cover, entering at the left shoulder
    and exiting at the left side just above the radiopouch, a small mic is located at the top corner of the flagpatch, and a push-to-talk button
    hangs at the center of the chest.

    It also came with both US ESAPI plates and Eagle's plasticized manual.

    Then some oldgen Warrior magpouches (The TT grenadepouch is of course not British). I didn't know that the singles and doubles were
    different in terms of removable flaps on the double pouch.

    A modular DPM utilitypouch that might be made by Kombat, the rest isn't British.

    And lastly a random Mk7 water bottle without cap and a P44 compasspouch.

    Yeah I'm very(!!) happy with that vest, already with the integrated softarmor intact and the hard plates with it, but also the personal touches. There were no other bidders and I doubt anyone else actually saw what it was.With the photos the seller used it looked more like some airsoft-thing
