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?

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.

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.

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.

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!

www.WolfArmouries.co.uk do a purpose built version of the US SWAT chest rig that doubles up as a flotation device. It's in DPM too.
It's an airsoft site! Shouldn't it be WaltArmouries.co.uk?

Yes I know it's an airsoft sight, but trawl through the rubbish and you may just find what your looking for. Afterall isn't the South African assault vest proving popular with forces in Afghanistan and that is the airsofters favourite.
