WEBTEX

#1
WEBTEX plce webbing pouches, are they that bad as i've herd the pouches are fine, it's just the clips so if you change them you got fine pouches yet cheaper, and on IRR almost none of our kit is IRR because as sonn as you iron itits fcuked anyway and our webbing is ment to be as IRR as grass what you think

Dont waste your money buying Webtex pouches they are rubbish, you can get near new genuine ones from most surplus stores and if they do start falling apart you can get it swapped.

Ironing does not reduce the effectiveness of IRR clothing. Only long term wear in normal use does this. The IRR properties are not a 'coating' but a characteristic inherent in the fabric and dyes used.

Webtex is only good for non load bearing kit, such a Nyrex and notebook covers, washbags and silly DPM crap like that. Issue kit is much better.

mcclurg, you're a cadet at the moment, though, aren't you?

Please clarify if that is not the case, but that is the impression received from yourself on your posts.

Rofl, yes i'm a cadet. Still though, i wore my assault vest to death. EVEN ROUND THE HOUSE xD
However no cadet exercise is ever as hard or places as much strain on kit as any tactical exercise you're likely to do in the Army. Webtex is fine for the Cadets but thats about it. A bloke on my JNCO cadre had a Webtex patrol sack. It broke, unsuprisingly.

Im not Cadet bashing either I spent 8 years in the organisation, I know whereof I speak.

That waas my point O_G, not cadet bashing, just pointing out that Army tempo is a fair whack higher than Cadet tempo, and that's why no one in the army seems to use webtex!

The only thing wrong with your Avatar was the size of the bloody thing, but you seem to have got the point :wink:

Webtex is shoite, in all shape and form. I also spent a few years in that particular organisation, and it didn't even stand up to cadet use in most cases I saw. I've seen webtex boots, webbing, assault vests, rocket packs, bergans, you name it, they've copied it, and its all shoite. End of
