Wierd question regarding kit for you.

Does anyone know if there is a version of the CBA with the plates biased to the left for people who are dextrocardic (heart on the other side), as opposed to the standard issue, which has the plates more over to the right?

Cheers

Already thought of that! my other option would be try not to get shot (and i'm sure that's what the Qm would say!)

I would ask up the chain. If you're that special, they would make one for you based upon medical records. If you go getting one modified it could cause all sorts of problems. Push it up the chain.

I see this stuff in line with flying suits that our aircrew wear. If you start making illegal modifications things can get messy legally.
Also, say he has an accident with it in theatre and needs new CBA. If he isn't 'in the system', there is no way to get the modified kit properly. I'm just trying to get him to obtain a 'proper' solution rather than a botched one, so that it will work down the line and for other guys in a similar position.

Heart on the wrong side ffs i s'pose the Siamese twins on the telly would want two helmets next! Be pretty cool for watching arcs tho'
Do you need an eye patch when firing your personal weapon too?
What sort of people are we letting join these days.
Hearts on the wrong side indeed.

Thanks for the replies. They've just given me a set of osprey kit, as it covers the whole chest!

Bit of a bone question though, i got 3 fillers, 1 back, and 2 front. Both front fillers have the same NSN, but one is thinner. Are they both supposed to go in, or is it part of the adjustable level of protection?

Cheers

I don't see any problem at all in letting Dr Who join up.

LMAO.

Re armour question about the two front plates. if they both fit in, wear them both. Your mum wants you back in one piece.

Well done for getting the prob fixed properly.

Thanks for that. It's not the plates - i've sussed that one - i'm not putting both sets of plates in at once (i don't have thighs like Garth!) it's the soft fillers that's confused me. They do both fit in at once, but why 2 for the front? just make one bigger!

Is one black and the other one green?

There are 3 of them - one green (labelled back - no probs there!!) and 2 black ones, both labelled front, one thin, one thick. The thicker one is labelled "Filler Osprey Front, Mk2". Both front fillers have the same NSN.

Incase you're wondering, my apparent ignorance in this is purely as I'm a crab, my stores havn't seen this stuff before, and I'd get a more sensible and knowledgable response here ( :D ) than on the e-goat!
