          Wish I could put it to some real use!

          Haven't gotten to put it to much use yet sadly due to this whole quarantine deal but it arrived on time and the only defect is a tear halfway down the divider of one of the ammo pouches. It isn't anything worse than I'd have expected given the condition (doesn't really impact the use of the pouch) I chose and would be easy enough to repair.

          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
