PLCE

#1
Hi,

Does anyone know of a site (or store) that stocks all the products that PLCE makes (i.e. bergans webbing etc) because some special kit is very hard to get hold of. (basically i'm looking for a site that sells all the things that are issued to UK forces as I am searching for a specific bergan).

Thanks

There are loads of surplus sites on the web, ebay is a good place once you know what you are looking for as there is always lots of stuff for sale.

I personally wouldn't bother with Silverman's, they may have a huge stock but there prices are ridiculous!!! :roll:

MSR, I think it is a day sack and issued to teethy armed folk - not seen it in my old Regt. and we had very sharp teeth but I've seen loads of them about particularly with some Queens Div chaps - so many it indicated to me that they had it on issue though of course Regt. funds could have bought a bulk issue.

The two jetpacks tied together are an abortion for carrying anything useful and once you've popped your waterproof bags in there very little space.

There is a very good issue daysack available but it is issued only to certain units, I think only infantry and SF. If you have access to one of those types of units, you could get a mate to 'lose' one for you, and you pay him the P1954 cost. Not that I acquired mine that way, of course... :D

Alternatively, you could also look at Karrimor's excellent range of bergens (ignore the fact that they look pants in olive drab - the DPM ones are top quality - and yes, they're Infra Red Reflectant)

Lowe Alpine have recently come out with a DPM daysack, and it's the absolute dogs danglers. They're also now doing their largest military bergan in DPM, very nice but fitted out for MOLLE/ALICE attachments rather than PLCE.

Lowe make the best off the peg ruckys in the world IMHO.

So, are you offering them, or just tantalising the poor fellow with them?

A related question: does anyone know of any source for the clips for PLCE bergans. My dear ickle doggie has recently chewed one of the clips off mine, the fecker, so I cant close it properly.

Stores bloke normally has them, or can get them for you. You could always try and get him to exchange the bergan, but you might need to give it a bit more 'wear and tear.'

The picture of the pack looks like the patrol pack issued to Inf units, without the integral side pouches. Maybe a newer version (L1A2?), which allows attachment of the PLCE side pouches. They do sell this version, and the old one at Silvermans.

It's a Web-Tex 30 litre 'Tactical Assault Pack', and at £80.00 from Silvermans it's savagely overpriced ! But then so's everything from the Mile End store.

Phone Troopers on 01206 511 268 for a decent price, (or a better daypack.)

That looks like a NI patrol pack, except with no side pouches. It is issued to infantry, and is a great rucksack, but get one with the side pouches (which aren't detachable: someone's taken the scissors to this one).
