Fit for purpose + high quality

This rig beats the quality of most of what I've shopped around for, and beats the price of everything else. A perfect example of when milsurp makes sense over a consumer product/milspec clone. Pouches are deceptively large compared to pictures, and the utility pouches fit radios/canteens/compasses/etc, allowing me to transition gear from a MOLLE pouch setup to this with minimal fuss.

Pattern 83 battle jacket

I ordered the "Great+" condition of this item。The battle jacket is a true classic from the Bush War Era of Southern Africa. It is a versatile load bearing system but I suspect the magazine pouches are designed to carry AR or R4 mag, and AK mag will not be a nice fit (you can check on the web)

The quality of the item for me is lesser to "great+" with partial server wear and tear,since it is a surplus item so I can live with that.

Just a point of reference: there are two types for the P83 vest but there is no indication on the web store, so I assume it is random.

Overall I am happy with the purchase.

Bush-tastic!

Ordered a Great+ condition on the great sale-ning, arrived reasonably quickly (especially for the holidays). A great big ol' sacc with wonderful storage capabilities. Whether you're camping out in the boonies to cap some 'yotes and durr, or on a mission to slot some no-good floppies in the bush, you can count on the VinDieselSacc to carry all the necessary supplies to stay alive out there.

Works better if you put Rhodesians Never Die and a mix of Die Antwoord on blast 24/7 while using.

SADF Battle Vest

The product was exactly as described, in almost perfect condition. It also arrive earlier than expected. Also, the email I received using historical lore to shame me into leaving a review was f***ing epic. First rate

It's a really big bag

I'm sure there's more than a few sack aficionados checking out the reviews and seeing if this is worth it, so I don't have to explain to you why it's so satisfying to get good ruck. The point of the review is: this is a good ruck. If you're familiar with Berghaus or Bergen bags then you're in for more of the same, but this time in nutria brown. One point to note, (although it may be placebo effect on SADF gear) the bag feels like you could set off a grenade inside of it, and keep using it. Think of that assault pack you were issued in basic, think about all the privates who must have abused it for years before you got it, think about how there were no holes, no broken straps, no busted buckles, minimal stains. This is that assault pack's cooler, thiccer cousin. I packed it out (to about 55lbs, full but not jam-packed) and wore it out for a 3 day trip and it's about what you can expect, comfortable and evenly placed weight that rides your hips, no complaints or hotspots. I know the description mentions soldiers ditching the frame, but external frame packs are peak hiking boomer aesthetic, so I reused an old Kelty frame I had. If i were to buy a special frame for this ruck, I'd check out a game hauler frame like Outdoor Z's Commander. Testament to the bag: I bought one for myself, liked it so much, I bought another as a gift.
