Osprey Sizing

Discussion in 'Military Clothing & Boots' started by PapaGolf, Apr 2, 2012.

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. Yet again, Man at Q and M's has issued me with my black bag kit, totally disregarding all the sizes I put in 5 months ago. Where should the bottom of the Osprey sit?
  2. Bit worrying you are just getting it now, I got issued mine four weeks ago for H17. I believe it should be level with the top of your hips. With side plates in it will be obvious if it fits correctly
  3. Glad you both have yours we deploy on H17 and not getting ours till first week in June!
  4. Probably the same for most
    People. I assumed PapaGolf was going on 16.
  5. Our guys that have gone on H16 got their kit 2 weeks before flying and some deployed diffy a lot of it after being told they could get it in theatre.
  6. Always the same story. Are you in the Artillery but not a close support regiment?
  7. Something like that.
  8. Wish I had got mine so far in advance, got mine in the week before we went on final leave prior to flying out last time. and virtually all of it was sized wrong and what clown decided a 190 osprey would fit me?! mahusive! hopefully better for H18 but not going to hold my breath!
  9. I like the plate to sit on the belly button.
