They are more expensive than that from the same seller on EBAY but feedback on the Rank Slides is excellent, have bought some other Multicam Stuff (things no one else is doing) from them with no problems but am looking at UK Tactical for some kit. One thing I have just purchased is the Vanguard Multicam pegasus webbing from none of the above mentioned sellers and I must say although a bit slow to get to me was excellent. Think the rank slides are top notch though gear spotter and the feedback seems to back it up
Nope, the WFRs used to do it, and the GH. I couldn't say if they still do it in their new guises, but... I can't recall anyother units who do it but I recall others may.
Re 'development' of rank slides. What exactly needs developing in a rank slide? It is simply 6inches by 4 inches of matierial , sewn in a loop, with a badge of rank embroidered on it. Exactly the same as teh existing two/three models but in MTP.
Yes, I thought I had seen OG rankslides about the place. Sure I've saw RA officers wearing them aswell, amongst other untis.
Agree with ex stab to an extent. Last tour I was on, me and the other lance jacks in our troop stuck the green square style patches onto the issue desert rankslides. Worked against us sometimes as we stood out a bit from other lance jacks and full screws, but was better all round
As a WO1 i don't really care about seeing anyones rank, those who i need to be aware of i know and not really concerned if i don't salute some officer cause with my 40 yr old eyes i can't see his black rank insignia against his dpm background.(chod)
However for the more junior soldiers i think it would be beneficial if rank slides where more obvious.
Lets face it, on ops most of us hide our rank anyway when needs must.
I have just put the desert backed 'black-rat' brig TRFs onto my desert DPM but the usual green ones onto the MTP. The same goes for rank slides, although as RE, I usually wear OG ones anyway.
As for the company mentioned at the start of this thread, Contact Left, I have baught a Multicam daysack from them and to be honest there is not that much of a difference...well not enough to be overtly noticable.
