    Recently got this. Label has been sewn through so detail is a bit lacking. Very CQC manufacturing like. Has some odd ball features which I have seen used before on other PLCE era kit.

    Very nice item, seeing it reminded me of the Mantis Red assault vest, grainy image attached. It does look very well put together as you say.

    That’s correct it’s made by CQC and was part of the Mantis Red trial. I contacted the MOD via the FOI act but they didnt want to know !!
