Osprey Compatible grab bag

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by Purple_Emperor, Nov 2, 2007.

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. Got a friend in Helmand who has asked me to find him a 'grab bag, which clips onto the clips on the side of Osprey and can take magazines, FFD, tourniquet and some water'.

    He's also after a leg holster for his pistol which is easy to get to when wearing Osprey.

    Can anyone give me any suggestions?

    Many thanks
  2. try troopers in colchester or jayjays in brecon both will make what you want to specific design needs. as for leg holster try usmc in portsmouth.
  3. The secretary of state for defence issues the exact item you are after to every serving soldier, it is called a respirator haversack!

    A good holster for your 'friend' would be the vanguard classic 3-way, it will drop below osprey when being worn, on belt when not.
  4. Might not be exactly what your after but this looks close from soldier of fortune.

    never tried their range personally but it has been designed for use with osprey[​IMG]
  8. It will have to be a heavy duty grab bag to hold mags/water/med kit.(making it heavy before you put kit in it!) this will also bounce around if your on your toes, so you'll need a waist strap.
    I've made a few of these bags now and they are mainly used by troops working in/from vehicles. Well atleast the guys who have bought mine have been, not sure how practical they are out on patrol?
    I'm still working on my grab bag design, so anyone with ideas or input please let me know.
