Roll pin belt

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 myself a rool pin belt, and discovered that there is no way that i can directly attach my pouches to it.

    Am I right in thinking that I just thread it around the exsisting belt?

    And to save making another post, anybody know where i can get a larger hippo pad, as in one that covers the whole of the pouches on the inside, rather than just the belt and ammo pouches as i have now

    Cheers

  2. The belt should have the loops for slipping the plastic tongues into. (Well at least mine did).

    To attach the yoke to the belt i liberated a couple of parts from an old '58 Patt set of webbing but some others have posted links for the modern equivalent of what i used.

    I am using SASS's hip pad (SASS Aussie Belt Support). A tad expensive but it covers all of the pouches and is of a decent thickness. Find it at www.sasskit.co.uk.
