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. I am doing a charity event at the back end of June and I need a sleeping bag and bivvy bag. I have used the army issue ones previously and I think they will be more than up to the task.

    Does anyone have one lying around they would be interested in selling? Preferably clean and in good nick.
  2. Millets? Amazon?

  4. Best price I have found on the Tinterweb is £40 for a good condition 90 Pattern Sleeping bag (As in the link above)

    If anyone in the arrse community has one I would rather give you guys the money.
  5. I've yet to find anything to beat a 58 pattern combined with a modern bivi bag. None of the civilian shite comes close. The one I have at the mo is from one of those MoD disposal websites and was only a tenner, plus another £7 for the bivi bag (and whatever it cost for delivery).
  6. I used to have a 58 Pattern, I quite liked it but I found it difficult to launder. It was warm though which didn't help because after a few trips it started to smell a bit sweaty.

    I have used the 90 Pattern with an Issue Bivi bag and found it quite comfortable.
  7. Good point, it's a right bugger to wash.
  8. That said I am half tempted because although a bit heavier it was dead comfy
  9. I don't think you'll find better for your charity event. The 58 pattern has a nice waterproof underside which helps insulate a little bit against the cold ground - I'm assuming you're doing one of those overnight sleeping rough things, in which case you should chuck up some sort of link so ARRSErs can throw cash at you that would otherwise be wasted on Meths or low-quality pay-per-view porn.
  10. Myself and a few others are walking a route known as the Larig Ghru camping out and then heading back over the same route.


    If people donate via Justgiving either by the text number or the web page the money goes straight to our charity which is COPS.
