    Hello everyone on IACMC.

    I've got some pictures of things I've acquired within the last 6 months.
    You should be able to right click the images in the spoilers and open them in a new tab to look at the full size image.

    SIOEN Tactical Hipbelt & Radar1957 ROTO-EXTREME? Five-seveN Holster, some images contain replica Five seveN.
    Belt has very nice padding, holster has a very snug friction/spring metal? fit. Replica 57 does not come loose while jumping even with the guard open.

    SIOEN Atlas
    I think this is based on the NFM Bear 2 vests the Belgian Army used. The build quality is not amazing.
    The example I have here has a broken zipper, and is a bit on the dirty side. Haven't cleaned it or attempted a zipper repair yet, but I plan on doing so in the future when I find time.
    Why did they use a plastic zipper for the main closing zipper? This seems like a poor choice since my zipper is ruined, and the inside pockets use a metal zipper instead.
    Would it not be better if they had used a metal zipper for the main zipper and plastic zippers for the internal storage compartiment? Guess you could argue there still are the clips to keep it closed so there are 2 ways of closing compared to the one for the internal pockets..
    Got this for a pretty low price because of the damage it has. Good deal considering the things I've noticed can be resolved with a bit of love and care.

    NFM Bear II Size 2 (Desert Jigsaw)
    Older and better version of the SIOEN Atlas, mine looks like its brand new but seems to have a manufacturing defect. One one of the buckle clips has a loose loop where the buckle goes inside, it looks like it was never attached. Should be fixable aswell.
    Mounted on the vest are 2 (out of 4) FAL magazine pouches I own. I think I mounted them atleast one loop too low, but that isn't hard to change.

    NFM Bear II Size 2 (Woodland Jigsaw)
    Ditto above, also looks brand new but this has no manufacturing defects and had tons of pouches included.

    My collection is still growing so expect more stuff in the future.

    I found it on 2dehands thanks to an ad I saw on my phone, thank god my phone didn't have an adblocker.
    Spent 240, feels like a fair price considering these are less common than desert ones
