    Seen this advertised, anyone know if it is worth it or any good? Why is this worth spending £100 as opposed to the free stuff we get given?
     
  2. Did you see it advertised at Dragon Supplies?
     
  3. What's Airbourne webbing?

    Is it a little like Airborne webbing?

    Umm, airborne or airbourne....quite possibly one of the two...

    is that second comment a wah?
     
  5. Check dragonsupplies.co.uk. They make their own form of airborne webbing and bergen and i'm reliably imformed it's quite poular with the 16 air assault highlanders.
     
  6. You dont click on links do you............

    so not a wah, just unobservant....

    does this mean you are a member of the yeomanry in Swindon now Mr Vaughany...
     
  8. No i'm an Air Cadet, but when I was working in Essex I visited Dragon Supplies to get some Lowas and they were advertising their own.
     
  9. Space Cadet, surely?
     
  10. If you need to ask the question, then you probably dont need the kit.
    If your issue webbing niggles you in some small way that you can resolve by spending £100 on something you'll wear 1000+ times, then surely 10p a day is money well spent.
     
  11. Space Cadet. Is that some crazy NASA off-shoot
     
  12. Wouldnt bother mate. Better off spendng a extra 20-30 quid and get a set from jayjays
     
  13. I can't comment on the build quality and personally I'd just use the PLCE issue stuff, but if you've got the money to throw at it, it looks good to me!
