Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows any good online suppliers? I was gonna get the 30-50 litre ni patrol pack but everyones told me its too small for a 5 day excercise. So if you know any good sites/products please send me the link. BTW it needs to be a plce bergen and brand new.

There is always "Cadet Direct" http://www.cadetdirect.com/order1.php?pg=44

I won't guarantee they're the cheapest and the customer service is indifferent but they are good for brand new issue kit. I use it for my kids if I don't have an appropriately sized item in the attic.

Edited to add - I've just checked the price on the new ones - I would strongly recommend you go for the good-quality used rather than pay £150.

Oh and do you think the ni patrol pack would do me for a weekend excercise?

Yes. If you aren't wedded to the "must have a genuine NSN on it" idea, you might even consider the Webtex 3/4 size bergan. Same design, smaller pack, also cheaper if you must have a new one.

Oh and do you think the ni patrol pack would do me for a weekend excercise?
That depends, sorry. I can generally fit 2 or 3 days worth of stuff into a daysack but if you are required to carry x, y & z, then you may need a larger pack. Are you camping out overnight or in buildings? Have you been issued maggot (sleeping bag) etc?

Links - RVOPS (Arrse sponsors) do the webtex thing - http://www.rvops.co.uk/cadets-104/load-carrying-106/plce-bergen-dpm-2012.html - note that this includes the side pouches and the yoke.

A (much) cheaper place to get the PLCE bergen: http://britkitdirect.co.uk/products/plce_main_bergen_dpm.html

you do realise after a week in the field it won't be 'brand new' anymore don't you.

buy used!

Highly recommend Strikeforce Supplies (last link of "therealbigdizzle") to all and sundry, speedy delivery, refunds postage that isn't requried if buying multiple items, and products match descriptions.

Recommend, as also well priced in comparison to some places.

Agree on strikeforce, their kit always seems to be 'handpicked' as I've never had a problem with any of it, unlike some genuine items I bought elsewhere that despite looking newer, self destructed much quicker!

Dont ever buy Webtex!!!!!!

Strikeforce will do you a brand new, perfect genuine issue longback or shortback (NSN) and all the side pouches and yoke for £99.00. (Or £60.00 on its own)

Service is excellent. The proprietor, Jasper, makes the ffort and will follow up late orders on your behalf sometimes.

I think Jasper has a secret tunnel from his shop that connects him to the QMs at Castle Donington, and at night he goes round there and nicks the day's customer orders!

OK Im getting confused now, which strikeforce were we on about before.

the company WOTW linked to is in Bath. The strikeforce that I love and use is in Brize Norton...

im willing to bet the one at Brize has been there longer!
