obviously the best place, if unreliable, is ebay. the kit is used, muddy, battered, modded, has non issue bits and is uber cheap. other places include- -dragonsupplies -jay jays -troopers -hm supplies( occasionally) if anyone has any more, post away and let me know. if anyone knows where to get a yank load bearing vest in reasonable condition or has one, let me know as i am looking for one( but not from ebay) to make your brand shiny new kit allyer(?), there are a number of things you can do that are quite easy beginning with simply using it, if failing that( dont know how you cant use it) simply go out to a farmers field after a large rainfall and submerge said item of kit( usually webbing, smocks, and other items that usually get filthy on ops). make sure that the item isnt caked in mud, but has mud adhered to it. next leave to dry on fence whilst you continue with the rest of your 'washing'. when all of your kit is dry, go to the nearest dirt road, don as much kit as possible and roll in the dirt and dust for as long as needed to get a good layer of dust/animal droppings/grass stains/ blood taken from roadkill etc. leave all affected kit to dry/permeate in a drying room. when its all dry take it out once again and proceed to beat it against the nearest hard, flat surface until all caked grime is gone, but still has severe staining. brush last of mud/crap off by hand. now its time to 'distress' your new filthy/clean kit. exacerbate any holes that may have appeared whilst 'washing' and 'drying' your kit, it shouldnt tear any more then you want it to. you can use sandpaper on corners of pouches and pockets. basically make it look 3-6 yrs old of good use has suddenly appeared on the stuff you got a week ago. next you can sew para cuffs to the smock, add roll pin belt to webbing, have all webbing pouches sewn on to the belt and maybe add double material to the elbows and knees of smock/trousers. also sew in creases to your trouser. its easy to ally up your boots, just buy a pair of beaten to sh1t matterhorns/danners/lowas/altbergs and bin your assault boots if you still wear them. by the way, if your kit 'died' during this process, then it was never ally in the first place and you are obviously a walt who knows nothing of the godliness of allyness.
