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. most of it anyway, Camelbak's are great. I even like the Magnum (desert and warm weather issue) boots.
    So much great kit better than ever before.
    A few questions though.
    Why do only the Infantry get a desert windproof smock and the rest get desert CS95 Jackets?
    Why do you get a hood for your Desert CS95 Jacket and not for your normal DPM one?
    Why is the normal DPM Camelbak 3Ltr but the desert is only 2Ltr?
    Why do you still only get one set of rank slides? are they expensive?
    Why are warm weather socks so much warmer than the black/green ones?
    Whats the point of those extra long desert shorts your not allowed to wear?

    In most respects though the kit is excelent.
