Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Yeah, I think we allready have it. We got given two sets of 'bomb pants' on H13.

    They were nice when it was cold.

    They weren't so nice when it started warming up.

    I imagine they are ******* howling to wear on a summer tour.

    Still they are for a good cause though.

    edited for shite spelling.
     
  2. if it saves your meat and 2 veg in an IED strike then they are NSP's.

    brilliant bit of kit by all accounts.
     
  3. We were told they were only to stop dust very small pieces of shit flying through the air in an IED strike not for large pieces of shrapnel taking your balls off, But it leaves the surgeons more of a chance to save your balls from secondary infection.
     
  4. been told the same as above
     
  5. There were two levels of 'bomb pants' on issue from H13... underwear as mentioned above then higher protection outer ones as well. Levels of protection probably not to be discussed on here.
     
  6. Correct and correct. Let it just be said they do what they are designed to do and are making a difference to some unfortunate guys (who otherwise would have been even more unfortunate)
