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've seen these at Field textiles. I don't know what it's for but it looks like its for something you might want to get to in a hurry like SA80 magazines, link, mortars, grenades etc; I thought it might be for a water bladder, but I don't think it is substantial enough.

    Or it could just be a pack for miscellanous items, food, mail, gerbils etc;
  2. If you google it's NSN you get Package, Outer, Water, so I think maybe a water bladder isn't that far off.
  3. Looks a bit like the carrier for the RGGS, i.e. rifle grenades?

    Although I suspect omega is closer on with his water reservoir thing.
  4. it is a cover for the solar showers which were tralled [but I dont think issued] a while back.

    The flaw in the thinking being;
    'in order for the water to reach a usable temperature, the reservior needs to be left on a flat surface in direct sunlight'
    So, putting it in a dpm cover...................
  5. solar showers are still on issue
  6. im pretty sure its somewhere that you can put an extra bladder in, and you just clip it to your bergan
  7. CAMEL pack outer?
