    Sobota - don't close CITEKs in this style:

    Thanks for looking George,mine is dated 2007,and looking at your fine example,I realise I badly need the pouches to complete it. I will have to go back to the store where I got it,and find some. The guy strips everything and sell's this sort of stuff separately. Very Happy

    Duncan - I see what youre saying but i've had experiences in the plast where if the pouches arent closed in that way they can be undone so easily when in the field, it happened to me once in my early days and 2 fully bombed magazines fell out! Ive never broken any clips by doing this.

    And Gary you must! You'll find many on the good old eBay going for practically nothing these days as im sure youre probably aware.

    I know about it - I have the same problems, and I find better solution. Look at CITEK clips in this pic:

    Osprey tactical load bearing vest P1100919

    In my work I saw more and more pouches with broken lower CITEK's clips because soldiers closed this pouches in Yours style. I think "sniper tape" around upper CITEK's clips part is a better solution.
