More Warrior stuff again, though I bought them for my Dutch collection, they are still British made.
First I bought this new(er) gen RICAS Compact vest, which I later sold after I found another one with a set of pouches on it,
at no extra money spent.
And here's the replacement vest, older gen than the above, visible in that the vertical sewing over the MOLLE strips is continuous, instead of just the
width of the strips being sewn.
I've only opened up the first new-gen one for a bit, but IIRC the plate-holding straps inside were a bit different than in this one, and it also didn't have
any QR clips at the side that can be used when wearing the vest as plate carrier without the cummerbund. (Maybe they were removed in the new-gen
vest, though I don't remember seeing any cut marks anywhere, the vest was pretty untouched)
I think the magazine pouches are one of the oldest generation, the admin pouch is also older, and the utility pouches are too, as the vertical MOLLE straps attach
with buttons instead of just folding back like the newest pouches.
And then I found this DCS vest, which is quite used, but also quite cheap, and again has some older pouches on it, and a grimlock.
The admin pouch is similar to the one above, but I think it may actually be older.
The magazine pouches I'm not sure about, maybe even older than the ones above.
And some British DPM rankslides, 1 single and 2 sealed pairs.
