I didnt see anyone on telic wearing those issue assault vests ,oprey was cumbersome enough without that crap on top . some of the pouches were handy to put on the osprey though.
The ten stone osprey is an raf mod ive been told ,its a small aircon unit to stop them getting sweaty, whist mincing to the echos cafe on the COB in their WMIKs .
edited to add look at the bird in the post above... NICE!!!!!!
