Assault Vest

Hey dudes, I picked up an assault vest from a well known internet auction site...after nearly ending myself on ex trying to drive a landy with webbing on, and the guy swore it's issue. But it seems a bit flimsy to me, anyone know of a sure fire way of checking? Can't see any Webtex labels, but it bears all the hallmarks of the dreaded stuff? Cheers!
If it's issue It'll have an nsn on it. If you hold it up to a 40 watt light bulb and it curls up and shrivels like a crisp packet then it's WEBTEX. Oh and if you're reading this Mr Webtex - fcuk off and sue me!
You could have waited till you go on tour, they issue them these days!

I never buy anything on those sites, I like to handle what I'm gonna buy.
OK, I'll just get my camera and see if I can snap it. The vest. Not the camera.

this is a pic hosting site, crank it up, hit 'browse' search pic you want up then 'host'. then right click and copy the 'URL for forums' into your forum post.
sorry, i forgot to ad, paste into the 'insert image' link on the tool bar when you post.

looks gen mate, dont look like the webtex bo lax at all. did you pay good 'me love you long time special price for it'. i've seen them go for good dollar on there, but then i suppose if it stops you getting totalled whilst driving a rover then whatever you paid is a good deal.there should also be a n.s.n label on it,if you open it up the label is stitched on the back mesh. has it got drawstring ties on every pouch?
Yep, drawstrings on every pouch, and here's that label...the number is 8405-99-527-1800
Thats the real one mate! mine is issue and has the same Nato stock code however I think mine is shit and much prefer a chest rig! :lol:

Unless some shifty bugger has sewn a copy label in...
Mine looks the same but has a different label and no clips on the back, as far as I'm aware Webtex came up with the concept of the clips on the back for the rocket pouches but if you say they're not for Pouches then I havent's a clue. The vests have them on the side though for your resi bag....
