    Has anyone been issued the mystical PLCE desert man bag? I've heard they are around but not seen them nor heard from anyone who has been issued one.

    People use them to keep ammo, grenade etc in.

    Mainly when working in vehicles so that if you need to abandon the vehicle you can grab your kit and go.

    I've seen some people use them when dismounted, although i've never heard of anyone with anything good to say about them
  11. Does any one know where I can get the 'Green clips' shown on the bail out bag in this LINK?

    I have rung Dropzone and they refuse to give me the surplier. He does the standard black, but also green and desert clips which are like rocking horse shite!

    Try the ITW Nexus website. You can order samples of their buckles for free and I'm sure they do the type of buckle shown on that bag.
