Webbing

#2
It helps to stop everything from flapping about, and a bungee is also one of the most versatile things you can carry. They are lightweight and can be used for dozens of different things.

Depends.

Who are you and what are you doing? Cadet? TA? Corps?

I have gone through the 'webbing fashon' phases and come full circle to the 'less is more' look. Dont try and be showy, dont have random things hanging off you, your probably not hard enough to pull it off!

3 utility, 2 ammo, all nicely put together with no spaces, a compression strap through the loops to hold it together and all taped up. If your wanting to push the boat out you can even go as far as a sandbag on top!

What are you issued?

In that case don't worry about it. In training your Corporal will show and tell you the acceptable way you will wear your webbing (Trust me on this!) during training. You will not be allowed to use your own. The webbing issued appears to be excellent so save your money until you have a year or so under your belt in your Unit of choice as then you will be in a position to make an informed choice as to exactly what you want/need.

Less is more.



To find your place initially do what is advised and blend in - the people doing the telling will know what they are on about....................unless its cadets. What ACAB says is correct, wait and learn. Then when you have a clue make an informed decision. You will find that your webbing will naturally evolve into what you find useful for the role you are in anyway.

Well I think its safe to say you don't need your Bayonet frog cupcake, unless you need something to hold a curly wurly in.

Less is indeed more. Personally, I only wear webbing for Battle PT or to look the part on Ex. On Ops, everything goes in the daysack bar some of your mags and your command kit, which goes on your osprey and maybe a pistol on your leg or belt.

In training, you have to carry a load of gash around like rations and water bottles, but as soon as you get to your unit, experience along with personal preference will show you the way forward, bit by bit.

Oh, and don't put five utility pouches on your belt kit, you'll look like a twat.
