PLCE webbing is a system which uses pouches (ammunition, waterbottle, utility, radio etc.) mounted on a belt and supported by shoulder straps (the yoke).
It is available online, or in surplus stores (mainly in the UK) in many different camouflage patterns. 
For my set, I chose 2 double ammo pouches, and a triple utililty pouch for the main load, as well as a tool pouch on the belt and a Bergan side pouch (as a 10 litre daysack/ camelback pouch) mounted on the yoke. Additionally, I opted for a roll pin belt and hippo pad to help get a good fit and prevent pouch bounce when running. additionally, i purchased 2 utility straps, and a bungee cord to keep everything together as well as zip tying the top of the ammo pouches to the top of the triple utility pouch..

As an air cadet, we now must wear webbing to complete WHT's and firing drills, and the SA80 L98A2 is a left hand loaded weapon. therefore, the left ammo pouches must remain empty.

The right hand ones, however, may be used for storage.
in mine, i store a first aid kit (see my 'ible) a model kit (see my 'ible), cam cream, paracord a pack of tissues  and a torch.

Step 3: Utility pouches

Picture of utility pouches
Left most pouch contains gore tex jacket and trousers.
middle pouch contains mess tins (and their contents) and shemagh (AKA. scrim scarf)
Right hand pouch contains waterbottle and mug.

Step 4: Waterproofs (first utility pouch)

firstly, it is not true that you need a daysack just for your waterproofs. i am a fairly big guy (6'2" and quite broad) and with careful folding, and ight rolling, bith my goretex jacket and trousers fit into a utility pouch.

A scrim and a Shemagh are very different.
