The S-shaped clasps remind me of British equipment before and during WW1.
Some S-shaped clasps were engraved to resemble snakes.

I have a felix "fuck your shit" patch (my other one I gave to my nephew). By now its pretty old but still in good condition. What should I do with it? I Was thinking of putting it in a frame so it looks like something with a story to it.

When my grandkids ask what payback enterprises is, I'll tell them a story of a hotter maniac, and operators who defended the right to bear expensive nuggets.

I have one too. Sometimes wear it in public when going full-geardo. Last time, while waiting in line at a convenience store, some guy spent an awful long time reading it, before saying to me, "pr'ty bold t'be wearin' that patch."

hey /g/earheads, I'm wondering if there are any vests similar to the South African Defense Force 83 - either straight up clones, similarly cut PALS webbing patterns, or other modern backpack-integrated webbing systems - that don't suck. I might just go for an original SADF 83 at this rate but I am wondering if there are any others in that style which are well made and not just Chinese airshit-tier. I'm aware of Karrimor SF's Predator vest and that's about it.

I bought one when they first came in on Kommando Store mostly for the historical novelty, but I've used it hiking and shooting a few times. Something to keep in mind about SA during the period is there was a huge range of equipment which is it has the "one size fits all" feel when you load it with kit.

Also it's 30+ years in the past of LBE development, so you will notice it's more cumbersome than even a cheap MOLLE vest and pouches laid out for you and your kit. I like it for the history, it absolutely will carry your stuff, but also accept it won't perform like any modern system for the collector-grade-prices you'll end up paying.

since my local camping/tacticool store is going out of business, I snagged these Oakley M Frame 3.0 PRIZM thingers. the whole set was marked down to $200 which seems to be a decent deal with the clear, TR22 and TR45 lenses and all the little accessories.

I gather the PRIZM lenses are supposed to help with contrast, but what's the difference between TR22 and TR45?

I just got a pair of Smith Optics Chamber glasses. I say glasses and not sunglasses because I got clear frames. They're supposedly wider-framed than their Director model I had my eye on. Need that for my oversized noggin.

Affordable at only $80 and I believe Smith scored well in a Lucky Gunner test of eye protection years back.

I think it's a Bestop. I'm not familiar with the brand and they don't have my model car, but I'll call to see if there's not a better choice.

And remember to keep your guns and powder dry.
Container, Individual, Aerial delivery, Rifle, 1st pattern, (Rigger Modified)
These are the cases also known as the "Modified 1st pattern Griswold bag". Details include authentic snap and grommet closure, cloth loops and snap, interior construction, snap hook and webbing hanger, and military nomenclature ink stamp. Our cases are made slightly longer to fully and comfortably fit the disassembled M1 rifle inside without stretching the canvas. It includes a release cord to close the case. We used custom woven white harness webbing that includes the black ticking with a milspec harness snap hook. The canvas used is the durable and authentic cotton duck in the Od#3 shade. In this rigger-made version we take our standard model container and modify it with the addition of three lift-the-dot tabs to close the container instead of using the lacing closure. This modification was most commonly made by the airborne units fighting in the Southern France campaign. http://www.wwiiimpressions.com/riggershop.htm

yes i do and i love it, not much more to say though its nice quality, but it should be for the price, it is super convenient that it folds up nice and small in its own attached pouch.

if you like ponchos, i would definitely say get this one its the best i have ever owned.

Since AR500 can't unfuck its shipping/order department, I have 350+ to spend on armor unless they miraculously put a carrier and plates on my doorstep by monday, I need alternatives. I sent them an email saying I either want my money back now, or they can send me the plates I order and another of their cheapest level 3 carrier packages.

Currently running a grey ghost carrier, but it's been without armor since fucking beginning of september. Give me good and reliable places to get some shit.

I ended up selling my banshee on ebay and buying a Ferro Concepts Slickster from The Great White North. A little less overt but has a little less working space than something like a banshee, but scale-able from plates only under a cover shirt to a light magazine/essentials loadout to pairing with a chest rig for the full package.

For something with a little more space to work with from the start, I'd look at Beez Combat Systems or Mayflower for a good budget option.
