(Army Cadets) Webbing set up

Featured
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.

p.s. this is my first instructable so go easy on me please

it was a x-mas present from my company
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.
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.
being a cadet, isn't he holding an l98 cadet semi-auto variant of the l85?
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.
thats pretty awsome,if you dont mind my saying so.
That is a notepad cover, they are used frequently in cadets.
I myself have one :) they are great to protect pads, and pens :P
they are these

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.

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

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 :)
this is cadets, no battles here ;)
wolfy_90054 years ago
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.......)
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

tads_leumas (author)  Thelonelysandwitch5 years ago

how long does it burn for?
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).
