right, im not usually one for buying loads of my own gucci kit for the sake of it, but i was thinking of shelling out for some decent webbing seen as ill definately get the use out of it. now most of the tailored stuff iv seen, both by the camp stitcher and from mates and things, while it may be mod spec, (IRR and all that jazz) they dont seem to be like the issue stuff. all the fabric on the issue stuff if waterproof lined, and really, you could give it a pretty harsh battering and it would still hold together. most of this custom stuff seems just to be thinner dpm fabric, a bit thicker then a cut up combat jacket. now some of the stuff on places like kit monster and stuff looks pretty good. a few questions for anyone whos got anything similar really. firstly, is it as rough and tough as the issue stuff? my kit takes a battering, so the last thing i want is to shell out a ton and have my mess tins drop out the bottom running across the oolu. also, i expect myself to get quite wet and messy quite a lot (sometimes even on ex....). how does things like the velcro ammo pouches hold together. when you get muddy, velcro has a habit of turning to shit, and the last thing i need is to be wet, muddy, cold, and then have to keep my pouches shut with safety pins from my housewife.
