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. Fellas,
    As we know the issue S95 Desert clothing is just not up to the job, any ideas to modifying the Trousers so they will stand up better to the demands ? Apart from sewing extra material to the knees is there anything else you can do to improve them.Also are there any specific firms that will improve clothing for you ? :thumright: Thanks
     
  2. That depends. Are you:

    a. Are you a journo after a cheap quote of soldiers slagging off kit?

    b. Someone who works at the relevant IPT who could actually get something done?

    c. A concerned amateur?

    Sorry for being a bit cynical at this time on a sunday morning but you know how it is...
     
  3. My Nephew deploys to Afganistan so I am trying to make life easier for him actually.Im going on personal experience with S95 so if it helps pass it on !
     
  4. whats wrong with it?

    get those gay knee pads from the px if you dont want to damage your deserts.

    as far as i have seen the exchange system has been more than adequate.

    if hes destroying 3 sets of combats before a chance to exchange them then thats bad admin on his part.
