I'm getting mine sometime in the next week, I'm in a role where I'll not need to wear it but I bet the guys in the Rifle Coys are looking forward to long, still if it protects the family jewels should the worst happens then a few hours of discomfort is a small price to pay.

Maybe the MoD should just wrap us up in cotton wool and send us on patrol. The main reason they are giving us so much protection (and more weight!) is to save on claims and payouts.

Is it bollox, they want to ensure that we keep on breeding more steely eyed dealers of death and you can't breed those from limp wristed, left leaning guardinistas.

takes a para to breed a para, we'll except in your case mate where its takes a para to breed with a para. mortars right :)

MIght not be to comfy after about hour 8 though.

Still think we are up-armouring our personal to daft levels. How do you simuate that in training for units not set to deploy? Or our we going to do away with them again soon?

Sweaty sack maybe - but you can't argue with the numbers that show fewer blokes are are coming back nutless after IED events...

Given that everyone knows we're just on a slow wind-down to the pull-out date, I can't really see the arguements against erring on the side of caution.

I have long said that the more protection, armour, kit you give a soldier the less effective he is as a "warrior".

Basically the more kit, the slower the soldier. The slower the soldier, the easier a target he is. Its almost as if there is an inverse relationship...give them protection but expose them to more danger by doing so.

Or is this just the ramblings of a very tired idiot.

Ok..don't answer that!

Been using since oct, first thought was this will be shit. To tell the truth you hardly notice it. After a long day your cock is wet.

You wouldnt wear it for 8 hours? Its attached to the back of your osprey, then if your clearing a VP/VA you unroll and attach, when clear you roll back up again.

Worn them on my tour, H14, they are surpisingly comfy. But it does not take einstien to work out that a small bit of padded fabric doesnt really do much. As said before its all for claims, a friend who was injured when claiming was asked if he was wearing every single bit of PPE because if not he wouldnt be able to make a claim.
