Does this look any good? Would have to buy pouches on top of that. but what do you think? a little cheap?


Save up and get a warrior TMV, much much better quality, will last you forever, and has a resale value. UKtactical sell them, would link but on phone at present.

I would say +1ish to Geoff's post, but saving up and still having enough to skirmish might be difficult for the yoot among us...

 

A big plus of the NCS VISM is that it will be very light and cool to wear, but at the cost of robustness. Still, you do get a decent looking belt with it, which for £25 can't be sniffed at. I think that if you don't mind your kit looking like you've been on ops in the field for a fair while after a year of owning it, then it's a good choice. Also, if you cover it in 2nd hand issue Osprey pouches and some kind of hydro bladder pouch, they will protect the vest.

 

If light weight is the way forward for you, you might want to consider this Recon rig also. I suspect it would prove to be more robust.

Piccies,finally!

Yesterday,a Soviet army flask for 7€. Got it in an expedition/outdoor shop. Unissued,unused. It's very old but I still trust it more than a China made one.
http://i.imgur.com/5f9iIZTh.jpg
 
Technically didn't buy this,but dug it out,my Dad's 'Вешмишок' based rucksack,made by a soviet sports company in 1970s,not military issue but looks the part. Handy for overnight games or milsims. Does not exactly fit in my loadout era but phuck it,it's so useful..
http://i.imgur.com/hleSmfeh.jpg
 
...And the holster i bought that had blood on it,don;t remember,but around 5€. A day of sitting in chlorine has cleaned it out well,but discolored it even more.
http://i.imgur.com/o5yj5Muh.jpg

My rig is almost complete,just need a utility pouch.Might replace my old Czech made belt,the clamp is getting rusty. For an idea of how old it is,it reads ''Made in Czechoslovakia''.

Yeah.

http://i.imgur.com/5f9iIZTh.jpg

Yeah, I've got one of those. I dunno about the Chinese ones but the Russian ones are a pain in the arse. The chain makes unscrewing the top awkward and the whole thing bounces on a belt like a big woman on a horse... plus, you can't take the bottle out of the pouch without undoing the strap that holds it onto a belt, so you may as well bring the whole thing up to your mouth, but then it's fiddly to get back on the belt.
 

Technically didn't buy this,but dug it out,my Dad's 'Вешмишок' rucksack Dunno the year it was made,but he served through the late 70s and early 80s... Handy for overnight games or milsims. Does not really fit in my loadout era,but it looks cool and for me,practicality>looks.
http://i.imgur.com/hleSmfeh.jpg

Can you see if your dad knows anything about this that could help me track one down, because my veshmeshok has only one external pocket and some crappy twine through a hem to tie it up, no eyelets or proper string like yours.

i meant that i will trust 30 +year old(It dates back from 1977)Russian aluminium rather than new chinese metals.

 

 I've 'come up' with a handy way of using them,Will post some pictures later on,I short,I use the crossed straps to thread my belt through and I don;t bother buttoning it down,using the tension of the main strap and the string to secure it.  

I agree,the chain is finnicky as f*ck. But remember,it differs from good design of usual russian gear as it's made so soldiers will only drink when they have time to unfasten it and have permission from the officer and not in the middle of battle.

And add to the fact that most soldiers carried alcohol in theirs.

 

EDIT: My phone just died so I'll whip some shizzle up in MS paint.

 

On the bag,It turns out it's not military issue,I've read the faded tag a bit and It's made by a sports company,in 1970s. Bloody fantastic quality though,the canvas is invincible and it can hold a massive amount of stuff. It's veshmeshok based though. 

Found it on etsy: http://www.etsy.com/...-rucksack-large

 

EDIT EDIT: sh*tty MS paint pictures! All of this is assuming the chain is removed,I'm going to replace it with some paracord. The chain kind of ruins this whole method.

 

You might already do this though :F

Oh right, that's more of an alpen rucksack than a veshmeshok, i think. Cool yeah, but the strap/loop design is sort of iconic. I washed my unissued one to get the stores-stench out of it and the colour bled out more than i expected, but it looks so cool now. I'll get some pics together sometime and put them in the Loadout Pics thread.

 

Yeah, if i've understood your diagrams, and fair fcuks to you for info presentation skills btw, i use it pretty much the same, except i do the button up - it's just bloody annoying compared to a canteen that goes in a pouch which stays attached to the belt. I don't trust it to stay on my belt when i run without the button done up, but i need to figure out some way of stopping it bouncing about like a tit fantasy anyway. I wish i could understand Russian so i could take part in discussions on Russian ex-service forums, because they must have found a way to stop their personal supply of tank anti-freeze from being such a ball ache!

You can always make the button hole larger. And check out this Red Alliance thread,it's archived so has no pictures.

My Hatch Centurion Knee Pads turned up :D They have a ridge in the foam that feels like it will stop them falling down, as well as the coolaboola QD strap buckles. I'm not sure they could be any better unless they were made out of titanium armour...
