CADETS WITH STUPID AMOUNTS OF KIT

I would say that seems alright buddy, but this thread is from 2008 I would standby for shouts of "Holy thread resurrection" and stick to the threads you were posting in before.

God I feel old seeing this come up again.....

Personally as a cadet I don’t think you need two double ammo pouches, you’re better off changing the one on the right for an admin pouch of some sort...head torch, gloves, mossie rep & net, cam cream etc, stuff you need to hand without having to reach around your back.

Apart from that suggestion I’d say you have it sorted
 
Haribo's, you need some Haribo's.

What he said.

Head torch note: Make sure it is one that also shines a red light as that helps preserve night vision and is not as obvious at a distance at night - learn which button does what, nothing like going all stealthy and then shining out 300 lumens of bright white light announcing your location. After dark I used to wear mine around my neck so that it was immediately to hand and then just slide it up onto my noggin once I needed to use it.

Are you talking about something like this one, Effendi?

I keep looking at the Princeton Tec ones in the outdoor shops, but I know I would cry when I lost it. I grab the Energizer ones, they sometimes have 3 packs on special offer in the DIY supershed for the same as you pay for one gucci one.
 
How high should i be wearing my webbing because currently the bottoms of the pouches are on my hips not the belt is this wrong

As he says. Replace right ammo pouch for pouch utility. Those buckles are on it for a reason.
