  1. Hi Guys,


    Does any know if Cot Vests come in different sizes, or is it one size fits all, you just adjust straps etc?

  4. A cot vest is a handy, yet cumbersome, sleeping device attached to your back.

    Not to be confused with 'squaddy mattress'.
     
  5. Exactly the same. However your first picture of the webtex vest is cheap and nasty, where as the second one is the issued cop/assault vest and is not cheap and not nasty.
     
  6. good for doing fibua.
    its a must
    fibua instructors do it from gable end to gable end.


    sorry i get my coat.
     
  7. I have one for sale if your interested Jarofwasps.

    Its an issued one (same as your second picture) and in excellent condition. I won't be needing mine any more due to impending redundancy.... :x
