    Usually not into non-camouflage printed items, and webbing especially, I must admit that this is an impressive and über-cool find filupe!

    That thing looks built like a tank, and cannot be the lightest piece of gear to lug around, with all those buckles and metal clasps?
    Awesome, in the words true meaning, Sir!

    You can't wear a para began with the kidney pouches attached. That's why Airborne always wore a belt kit of water pouches - they sit lower. Or to put it technically, you can wear the bergan with CEFO but not CEMO Very Happy

    Oh yes a fully loaded set of 58 webbing with large pack in the pouring rain weighs a bloody tonne even worse when you are tabbing around Breacon oh happy memories.

    quite correct that the earlier version was a darker green but the first pattern '58 resp case was green canvas. I have one in the attic somewhere with an S6 still inside it.

    In my day the rumour was that it was designed by a woman. A woman who had been seriously abused / dumped etc by a squaddy at some stage in her early life !! She sure got her own back on a whole lot of us though, eh ?!! Laughing

    The first issue NYLON S6 carrier had if I remember correctly brown edging/trim while the later one had green.

    The 1st pattern canvas ones were at one time quite rare but now common.
