Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm almost getting my hands on a Lowe alpine saracen, and are thinking of buying some small karrimor pouches,
    Or other small pouches for that matter.
    But will they fit on the Saracen.?

    You're in no rush eh ?
     
  3. Everything fits, given a big enough hammer, or sufficient adhesive.

    This was the first result of a websearch, is Holland too far away or are they cheaper by you ?
     
  8. Hmmm, i see what you mean, you came up empty as well :)

    Lowe Alpine Saracen, olive green.
    That was the spec, right ?

    If you need anything bigger - and nearer to home there's always this from Norway.
     
  10. Yes, but there was not a link in your previous post.

    Thank you :)
    Have heard the the dutch army model is not made by Lowe alpine, but made in china under license.

    You know something about that.?

    Sorry pal, the link was in the first word, 'This' - if you see writing in another colour on this site it oftens contains a link.
    Similarly there's one in my last post, click the word 'this' just before 'from Norway.'

    As to the Dutch model being made in China, if it is then I'd assume they were getting a lot of their kit made there. The Chinese are as ever desperate for foreign currency so their quality control is tight for important contracts.
    Shit, even our MTP uniforms are made there !
     

  12. Thanks mate. :)

    But even though you tell me, i can hardly tell the differents in the color.
    But thanks for the links. :)

    I have actually notice that the molle is different in this two models.

    It's on a website, their images may not be perfect anyway.

    The first one has the MOLLE/PALS system and the second the older ALICE system - but how much more than 120 litres do you need to strap to the outside ?

    A mate says Lowe kit is made in Vietnam now, and that's where Blackhawk get theirs done too so the quality shouldn't be an issue.
     
  14. Good one :)

    Nothing i was just trying to figure out which one was the original one, and which one was the arwy one.
