Does look OK. Very clean kit - after a bit of dust it would prob blend better in a dustry environment. It's probably a better all-round solution. Quite impressed that the Army has gone ahead with it really!
*Cough*...Those lad's are 40 Cdo RM......*cough*

Some of the helmets seems strange - the one closest to the camera looks like the one shown in the trial phots which I believed was not to be used.

RAF Loadie? Seems to be wearing a 'hang out of the back with a gimpy' vest rather than Osprey.

He's wearing a US MICH 2000 with MSA Paraclete RAV.
The MTP looks bloody brilliant.
Looks like Osprey Assault armour in desert DPM.
At long last we're getting there. We've always had the men, now they're getting the equipment.

Osprey needs to match now, or at least be in olive drab.
Totally agree, but it really is getting there!
Wait 12 months; the gear really will be shit hot!
