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. Hello all, about to deploy back to the sandy place and am trying to decide which manbg to go for, must be able to hold a A4 folder, (comes with the job) a couple of smoke/L109 and at least 6 mags.

    Any thoughts from and owners both good and bad please.

    Cheers
     
  2. Arktis are good quality. Different sizes are available so if for instance you wanted one which could take a laptop then your sorted there. Also Arktis now make selected items in desert DPM. This is on special request.
     
  3. I've got a mate who makes these "man bags" to order using mil-spec materials and techniques (He's a serving Sapper and used one of his own recently in Afghan). He did the equipment repair course so he knows his way round a sewing machine :D

    He's sold a couple of his on eBay and got good feed back. If anyone would be interested I'll drop him a line and see how he's doing for materials at the moment, I know he has to get most of the buckles etc from the USA.
     
  4. Have a look at the one Troopers make. Fits all your requirements and is completely bomb-proof. Check out this thread clickity-click.
