Introduction: (Army Cadets) Webbing Set Up

This is an instructable on what to carry in your webbing. In the field you need some essential kit to live and work comfortably. This is only Army Cadets so I won't go into too drastic detail.

As a senior cadet I tend to carry some extra kit. This is usually used for added duties which may not apply to you. I have a fair experience on this subject. But my preference may not necessarily suit you. Think up your own set-up this will help you remember in the long run.

On my webbing I have 1 double mag pouche 5 water bottle pouches and it is a belt style so it is padded for extra comfort

you do not put anything in your ammo pouches apart from ammo other than that it's a good demo

I am a Canadian cadet and at a cstc (cadet summer training center) and we only get pistol belt with 1 canteen if you find one surplus get it the are so many survival uses for a pistol belt

tads_leumas made it!(author)2008-05-01

are you in the french reserve? i saw the gun (a famas, i think. corect me if im wrong.) and i think its a french gun.

crimson+sausage made it!(author)2010-02-23

Not a FAMAS, though it does show the same bullpup style mag feed. The rifle he has is an L85, the standard British assault rifle. Up until the 80's, Britain was still using single shot rifles, only recently have they adopted the "spray n' pray" mentality.

R.JStorey+%28Rodders%29 made it!(author)2011-10-30

being a cadet, isn't he holding an l98 cadet semi-auto variant of the l85?

Puze made it!(author)2011-06-26

From me being a cadet (air cadet) chances are that's not an L85 it is probably an L98A1 or A2 depending on how long ago this was taken. The L98 has had the change lever removed so it can not fire on full automatic and the A2 is semi-automatic unless you change the gas plug round where as you have to re-cock the L98A1 after each shot which was just a pain.

chicks+dig+me made it!(author)2008-05-02

thats pretty awsome,if you dont mind my saying so.

godfreyandthandi made it!(author)2009-09-15

That is a notepad cover, they are used frequently in cadets.
I myself have one :) they are great to protect pads, and pens :P

I'm confused, I'm an army cadet and we don't get to carry on while on ex... I think you're lying!

yoshi1 made it!(author)2011-04-24

Do navy cadets get this stuff?

mysss made it!(author)2010-07-26

what is "mine tape?" Sorry, I'm not military, so I'm just reading this for the hell of it.

Tobita made it!(author)2010-02-01

A quick note on the shemagh/goutra: if wearing a cap, fold the goutra on the diagonal and place it so that the fold is just past your forehead, then put on your cap and throw the ends behind and when expecting dust/sand/whatever simply pull one end over your mouth, throw it around back and do the same with the other end, PERFECT!

 If you're only carrying one water bottle, scrounge up/private purchase one of the metal P44 water bottles and cups. You can stick 'em on the stove/fire and heat them up directly. Great for when the bottle freezes or you want a brewup.

survivalist made it!(author)2009-10-16

a shemagh is kind of like scrim crossed with a table cloth , it is used by the sas.  you wear it in the same way as you do scrim

survivalist made it!(author)2009-10-15

great instrucable I do air force cadets in aus but i have only beengoing for a year! what kind of webbing do you have?? what rifle are youcarrying. an item you migh find useful is a flint, these are cheap andvery reliable providing you have the right tinder :)

AFC is betta

godfreyandthandi made it!(author)2009-09-15

kicker109 made it!(author)2009-09-18

i will have to disagree

godfreyandthandi made it!(author)2009-09-18

yeah, afc is better in some ways... but i just seem to prefer army...

aseaheru made it!(author)2009-09-15

if you brit, or not, i say this, british = cool/nice/better than americans like me

wolfy_9005 made it!(author)2009-07-07

Only 2 mags? Seems a bit light.....maybe this is for training only? Personally if i was going into combat i'd want maybe 6-10 mags. Sure their extra weight, but owell. An extra buttpack with a 200rnd FN Minimi/M249 Para(shorter, but same gun essentially) belt in it is a definate plus :)

godfreyandthandi made it!(author)2009-09-15

this is cadets, no battles here ;)

wolfy_9005 made it!(author)2009-07-07

Cant see it too well, but you definately need to break up the chin line a bit, maybe with a bit of scrim or something. Also, try and get something to cover the belt, since it is fairly noticeable(maybe not so much when your laying down). Stitch some leather onto the inside of your pants to protect your knee's, and some along your forearms for when you are crawling. Better then getting a sharp stick jabbed into your arm :) I have enough experience to be of help should you ever need it(and i doubt you will need the help even if i offer). Webbing in aus is different from the webbing in the UK(and your obviously from the UK, just from the rifle, unless some other countries have adopted it.......)

godfreyandthandi made it!(author)2009-09-15

nah, us aussies dont get to carry rifles too much, the best we get is to shoot the F88 on camps... and yeah, the webbing is way different. so are the canteens XD

smify90 made it!(author)2009-08-06

its only for cadet use so it only going to be used in sectiona attack adn the like, it doesnt include the mag already in the rifle, but i do argree only 2??

wolfy_9005 made it!(author)2009-07-07

Shemaghs are sweet :)

Hi, I'm from the US. What is "mine tape"?

Thelonelysandwitch made it!(author)2009-03-18

how do you use the gas cooker?

tads_leumas made it!(author)2009-03-31

well you put it all together then use a liter to lite it, i would dig a little pit to put it in but i just dont have the time to do that. so i just fine somewere flat to use it.

Thelonelysandwitch made it!(author)2009-03-31

oh cool. what gas do u use.

tads_leumas made it!(author)2009-04-03

what ever will fit, burn and is cheap, but is is a self sealing, 230g Cartridge butane and propane mix, but i have a new stove now

Thelonelysandwitch made it!(author)2009-04-04

how long does it burn for?

Thelonelysandwitch made it!(author)2009-01-21

Im a scout and we carry some stuff too. I carry duct tape, a multi tool, a fire steel, a fenix pd30 plashlight, my wallet (lock picks included), and my cell phone (of corse with camera).

goeon made it!(author)2009-01-21

you bring lock picks to scouts?

Thelonelysandwitch made it!(author)2009-01-22

yeah, we get locked, or lock people in weird places, and you need to know how to get out. this also helps when we loose the key to the trailer.

goeon made it!(author)2009-01-22

ok thats useful

Thelonelysandwitch made it!(author)2009-01-22

all ways

Notbob made it!(author)2009-03-31

Locking people in the back room... thats a common occurrence at my Explorers meetings.. to bad its a sliding lock, and not a pick-able variety.

Thelonelysandwitch made it!(author)2009-03-31

ha ha, if you wiggle the sliding door, it could open.

c+ssgt+seifer made it!(author)2008-09-19

Nice instructables, when you say cadets I am assuming you mean ROTC and not JROTC right? I am in JROTC right now and we have never needed half the stuff here. Regardless, I think most of the stuff you put here is very handy.

I love the ghille suit, i have been trying to make one for a long time now
