Webbing

Im looking to improve my webbing im a cadet
Currently its made up of
3×water carrier pouches
1×bayonet frog
2×double ammo pouch
Im planning to replace the water carriers with utility pouches and remove the frog.
Can anyone recommend any other alterations help.

Are you in the ACF as a Cadet or Instructor?
Why the white cammo throw over?

I’d suggest you remove the TRF, that looks ridiculous.

While I’m sure your ammo pouches are always full to the brim with loaded mags, if you ever get the chance to only have enough mags to fill two pouches you could always swap one set of ammo pouches for an admin pouch.
 
Lose the frog; cadets don't get issued with bayonets and it will just get in the way. A hip pad might improve comfort.

How do you fit a hip pad i own one but dont know how to fit it

And how level should the webbing be at the rear

It goes on the inside of the belt with the attaching straps going over the belt and under or between the pouches.

If belt is snug around your waist/hips, as it should be, then the pouches will be level all the way around. If they are sagging at the back, then the belt is not tight enough (do you have too many pouches for your waist measurement? If so, remove a water carrier and move everything else back towards the centre of the belt.). If the ammo pouches are up under your chin, then the yoke is not not long enough. Do not make any changes until you have fitted the hip pad, as this will add an inch to your waist measurement and may remove the sag.
 
Bungy cord in the Cadet's!!!!

The ELF & STUPID BOD'S will have a heart attack,

Remember the Battle of Hasting was lost because some non conformist wore a bungy cord and took the Kings eye out!!!!

As a Cadet wear what is issued.

If you are a AI? words fail me.

Just remember the more pouches you have on your webbing the more you will be tempted to fill them full of crap. Once you have done a few Section Attacks you will wish you had not packed that set of bolt croppers (just in case you need them).

You don't need a bayonet frog as you don't (or shouldn't) have a bayonet. Lost it.
Lost the TRF, it isn't necessary and looks silly.

As webbing goes it is a fairly standard setup and you don't really need anything fancy. The more pertinent question is what is in the pouches? I still see cadets clinging to the kit lists specified in the old manual (printed back in 1990!). You don't need everything including the kitchen sink in it.

As a Cadet wear what is issued.
If you saw what cadets were issued you wouldn't say that. It is utterly stupid.
 
For total Cadet "Kit Porn" suggest Cadet Direct or for the hardcore Silvermans
