Somewhere on arrse is a post "What kit do I need when I join up?" (no, I am not looking for it for you). It's for the regulars and goes on for pages and pages, go through it and you can get an idea what you will need to make life a bit easier during basic. When you get to your unit find out what they use and what they have bought. At this moment don't buy any kit, I know you are drooling over the RVops link but issue is good.
