I have posted this topic to get a general consensus on Osprey body armour and to see if the introduction of this equipment has been influenced more by non-military voices, the government sh1ting themselves. Or was it given a good going over by soldiers, who after all are the end customer. My personal opinion on Osprey, and I will say now that I'm not Infantry and am lucky (depends on how you look at it!) to be vehicle mounted all the time and because of this Osprey has been alright for me. However being able to fire a weapon using it is a f*cking nightmare. And I would also like to add I have big respect for all the Infantry lads on the ground running around wearing this gear whilst carrying everything else.
