This probably has been done to death, but I'm a little tired of getting treated like a walking bank every time I want to get a piece of kit. There are the obvious villians, but it would be entirley inappropriate of me to mention Silverman's name on a public board, so I won't. But the icing on the cake has to be when I went into a store today and asked the guy if he had any waterproof Bergen covers. The guy behind the counter duly pulls one out and shows it to me... when I ask how much he says it's Â£40! When I managed to pick my Jaw up off the floor and ask why it was so expensive he said it was Gore-tex... Why the fcuk would you need a Gore-tex Bergen cover? The whole point of Gore-tex is to stop water getting in while let sweat out... sort of... and I've never known my Bergen to sweat! It's a prime example of unscrupulous traders trying to rip off TA soldiers because they believe we'll pay through the nose for kit. Has anyone else had any experiences like the above where someone was blatantly trying to take you for a ride?
