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

  1. What is the best, most dogs danglies bit of kit you have been officially issued ?????

    Mine - RAF Officers flying boots. Most comfortable knocking round camp boots ever. Made from the thigh skin of young South American virgins.
  2. I think im happy with my desert boots or my Petzl head torch. Or maybe my issue 1970's chuck norris sun glasses!
  3. Shorts in Belize. Old, scruffy and comfy as hell.
  4. Windproof Smock - West Belfast 1993, allowed me to hand in my old one when we left TAOR.
  5. Compo tin opener!
  6. Raybans sunglasses! We thought we were the mutts nutts when we blagged them off the yanks, but then the OC appeared and demanded them all back "property of the regiment".

    Makes everyone look like an extra from Apocalypse Now.
  14. Kipmat without a doubt. 44 patt water bottle mug is very, very good, but the kipmat was a quantum leap after shivering as a career. Thermarest is better, but not issued. Proboots were pretty good. But overall, the issue kipmat has my vote.
  15. Chinese fighting suit trousers, now they were the dogs boll cks, a tad flammable but bloody warm and bloody convenient!
