HI Wonder if any of you guys can help me? Last week i ordered a NI Patrol Pack from Special Air Sea Services in Lancaster. It is advertised in their catalogue as a "PLCE Patrol Pack MkII DPM IRR - Genuine Issue". When I spoke to the guy on the phone to order it i again asked if it was genuie issue which he assured me it was. When it arrived upon closer look it appears that it may not be infact genuine issue - It does have an NSN number which is 8465-99-869-3875 and when checked with JSP 768 (Defence Clothing) Section 12 (Equipment) it is correct. However, the label it is written on does look a bit suspect with the other information that is written on it such as care instuctions - ( never seen that before on issued kit other than clothing). Also the Quick Release buckles do not appear to be the issue type as on Issue Assualt Vest (Waistcoat - Mans General Purpose Ops) or on the Infantry or Other Arms Bergen. I was also under the impression that zips on issue kit is stamped with YKK however these are not. I have no real issues with the quality of it however, if these are just the obvious differences there could be others regarding the quality of the stiching, IRR etc. My main concern is that i object to paying top doller for something described as Genuine Issue but which may not be and could infact be a cheap copy. I know SASS is a really good company so i am somewhat confused over the issue. Sorry about the essay- just felt it is better to include as much information as possible. If anyone could offer any information about points raised or their own issue daysack e.g. NSN Label, buckles etc it would be much appreciated.
