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. I'm after buying about 20 or 30 assault vests for my guys on the tank park, anyone know where i can get some from? Decent nick, must be IRR proof cordura
     
  2. not known...but IRR proof cordura never ever works IMO

    Try HM Supplies maybe?
     
  3. H3

    H3 LE

  4. Just a point on the IRR Cordura. I had a look at my assault vest with the "night-mode" on my video camera, and though it didn't glow white like my wooly hat did, it was still a lot brighter than the rest of my kit... I'd like to see what a Web-Tex or Arktis vest looks like, because the IRR capability of mine wasn't that impressive.

  5. For that quantity you should try wholesale, webtex do an IRR one but not sure how effective it is. From HERE (3/4 of the way down the page) they`re about £42 +vat each.
     
  6. Scaley, check your PM
     
  7. Don't use webtex, it's shi'ite. HM Supplies are a bunch of robbing barstewards. Can recommend Home Guard Supplies in Thrapston, Northants. Speak with Lloyd, he will square you away.
