Daysack yoke

#1
Is there a reason why the standard webbing yoke doesnt incorporate clips for the issue daysacks? surely would save being issued an extra yoke and would mean the daysack itself is held on more securely to the person?

Unless I dig my webbing out and see why this is obviously a stupid question, I'll comment that you have a good point.

It would save having to remember whether the rifle sling went on before or after the rocket pouches in order to prevent ending up in a knot when taking them off.

What about wearing webbing, Osprey and rocket pouches? Most people have the webbing yoke under Osprey, which will make using the rocket pouches a bit difficult. What if you just want the rocket pouches? I'm not the biggest fan of issue kit, but I really think they got this one right.
Agreed, but if the clips were there, especially if they were unbuckleable (new word), you'd have the option.

Errr, it can. So PRO WORD 'NO WAH'.

Look at the top of the yoke, outside the drag handle there are two loops.

Look at the rocket pouch. There are two male and female clips on the corners. Pass clips through loops and fasten.

Look at the bottom of the rocket pouch.

At the center there is a long piece of webbing with a clip. Fastened to the bottom center of the pack is the coresponding clip. Loop round PLCE waist belt and fasten.

Tighten as needed.

They actually put some thought in to this.

I have also seen people use the daysack yoke as thier main yoke using the clips to clip in to the clips on the ammo and utility pouches. Looked a bit strange though and you have used up most the clips. Dunno, not tried.

Okay, fit your rocket pouches directly to your webbing yoke.

What happens when you want to take something out of the pouch or ditch it quickly? You can't without taking off your entire PLCE webbing/assault vest/osprey.

Thats why the rocket pouches have a seperate yoke.

That's also why I have QR buckles on the front of my webbing yoke and a QR buckle on the belt. I fell in a lake once, wearing CEFO, with all the straps taped up and a roll pin belt on the buckle. I was on the lake bed for half a minute before I got the fcuking webbing off! Longest half minute of my life!

They cetainly did, pity you didn't. What's next? Stitching them to a CS95 jacket? Hanging them from the back of your helmet?
Oooh, like the idea of that! Save a lot of wear and tear on the back of your smock wouldn't it. Anyone know how much Jay-Jays would charge for this mod?

(Not really...)

and yes because the set up of clips on the side pouches allows for it to be cliped on.

Nah. I make sure the lifejacket is done up properly.

I agree it looks a right pain to get at anything in the rocket pouch but that wasn't the question.
Neither was "can the pouches attach to the webbing yoke". The question was "Is there a reason why the standard webbing yoke doesnt incorporate clips for the issue daysacks?", to which the answer is yes, because:

-you can get at the daypack easily with a seperate yoke
-you can change configuration easily with a seperate yoke
-you don't have have to remove your webbing/vest/chest rig/osprey when using a seperate yoke
-you can still use the rocket pouches if you haven't got webbing/vest/chest rig/osprey
..the clips might be uncomfortable under the pressure of a heavily-laden bergan's straps.

..the clips might foul your rifle butt when preparing to fire from the shoulder.

I already raised that point earlier in the thread, but it shows you've got your thinking head on :lol:
So you did. Well done you. Don't get complacent though; there's no room for complacency in this mans' army.

..and the clips might cost more money.
