  2. Did you really post this as a bit of free extra advertising?

    Looks okay to me. How much do you carry on your webbing, if you think this is overkill?
  3. No this isn't one of mine.

  4. I didn't mean you Tango, I hadn't seen your post.
  5. Tartan, no problems!

  6. Looks like a decent vest, camming water bottles up is a bit sad though
  7. I assume the grenades, mobile phone, prismatic compass and mags are not included?
  8. looks pretty good but do the prr and grenade pouches under the arms get in the way or does it sit low enough to avoid this...
  9. eBay has rules about the selling of wpns (L111's), bet the item gets pulled.
  10. My version, sits low like PLCE but has the features of a vest.

  11. It clearly says in the write up none of the surrounding kit is for sale. it's just to show you what the webbing can carry
  12. Pretty Ally - provided you're in a job that requires it. On a movements clerk based at Brize it might look a tad over the top.

    But whoever you are camming up water bottles means you have too much time on your hands.
  13. Thanks for clearing that up......I'm not able to access eBay from my work PC. :worship:
