    Just a little bump... I don't suppose you got round to copying the brochure did you? As a guy is selling one on eBay for a tenner and I want to see it but I don't want to pay a tenner for the privilege lol.

    Am i Jealous,much! I could do with sourcing an Osprey mrk4. Solo International are selling their own camo pattern version but i'd rather have the real deal. Same with Mrk7 Lids. There are a few Ospreys for sale at the moment but none grab my attention.

    What worries me is the DDPM webbing,isn't DDPM. It is still MTP where it has been covered but the Sun of Afghan has bleached the webbing where it's been exposed. Surely this would have been considered when deciding what materials to use???

    Nice, they do look good with the Blackhawk holster and Sig P226 on the front but a lot of troops stick the sig in one of the mag pouches, don't know why when the Blackhawk holster are issued.

    recently got a used solo MK4, found an NSN tucked away aswell..

    Osprey MK IV Multi Terrain Pattern - Page 3 Img_1110

    any suggestions as to the use of this large mesh pocket on the inside of the rear panel? (you can also see towards the top left corner of the rear panel the tiny nsn label
    Osprey MK IV Multi Terrain Pattern - Page 3 Img_1210

    NSN, couldnt fit it all in due to the awkwardness of the label and the chubbiness of my fingers

    Interestingly I just got one of these, the marker pen on mine starts "WA57" where yours says "WA20". I wonder if there is a connection?

    Sadly mine is too big for me so I will have to sell it - it's a 190/120 but it does have the matching cumber buns and ops panel. Plus the mag and frag pouches.

    Also I don't know what goes in teh bit at the back you mentioned either lol

    That'll just be the previous owners ZAP number, if you're not familiar it's just a quick personal identification code for use over a possibly insecure radio net consisting of the troops initials and the last half of their army number, used most unfortunately in a casevac situation (in my experience drawn across the forehead in marker pen). The closest link is that they share the same initials, their army numbers could be hundreds apart.

    Hey you british collectors,

    I'm very curious why is it I keep finding Osprey gear BRAND NEW, never combat worn ones?

    What is good value for the worn vest?

    Thanks!
