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. Anyone got advice for stiffening the shoulder straps on the issue bergen? Did a CFT today and the padding is "clumped" and didnt seem to be supporting the load as well as normal.

    I know dixies corner offer to bulk out the straps, but £38 + delivery is a bit steep at the moment.

    Cheers

  2. Why not just exchange it?
     
  3. Do your own padding then wrap with black nasty. Worked for me.
     
  4. When i did P Company we used razor wire and put crsuhed glass in our boots. Thats why we call you hats. :)
     
  5. Get an old kip mat, chop off bits from it about three straps wide and as long as you need, wrap them round the straps, and secure with dpm gaffer tape.

    Et voila, sorted.

  6. .............. Liar.
     
  7. Are you sure that's the right way round?

    Sorry, my mistake. How much did you rake in?
