Unloading vest of the army of Holland

30
I present the previously promised brief overview of the Dutch unloading vest.

Unlike the RPS shown earlier (which is currently used mainly for recruit training), the vest is still used.

The basis of the vest is made of durable synthetic mesh of green color, on which the slings of the MOLLE system are sewn, and the slings of the Dutch vest have a characteristic difference: a camouflage pattern is applied on them.

Unloading vest of the army of Holland


Back panel



Adjustment of the vest by height is made with the help of the Velcro and shoulder strap, which are placed on the shoulder, passed through the plastic “three-slot” buckles.



The size is regulated by the lacing on the sides.



The vest is zipped in front of three plastic "fasteks", the "response" part of which moves freely along the sling, which makes it possible to quickly fit the vest in size.

In the right and left chest panels pockets are provided, closing with a zipper.



In the left pocket there is a simplified holster (holds PM).



Pistol solely for clarity!

In the upper part of the dorsal panel is an evacuation sling,



fixed, in order to avoid accidental hooking of something with a strip of "sticky".



Also on the dorsal and shoulder parts are stitched loops of elastic tape, designed to fasten the drinking system tubes or wires of the radio station.



On the bottom edge of all panels, slings are sewn, designed to fasten the discharge belt (inaccurately).



Along the lower edge, there are D-rings for securing additional equipment (for example, an anti-gas bag). And on the right side a piece of tape - "Velcro" with buttons and "fastex" for fastening the sheath of a bayonet-knife.





"Empty" base on the carcass.





The set of used pouches is quite large, I will present only the available ones.



So, luggage pouches, universal.



The small pouch has a volume of about 0,8 L, an average of approx. 1,5 l, large approx. 2,5. All pouches have a safety valve, which, in addition to the main task, allows you to increase the pouch volume by about 20%.



Pouches are closed with a "flypaper", an additional "tail" which allows you to close a cartridge pouch, filled with "to the eyeballs", as well as an adjustable "fastex" allows you to pull down the half-empty cartridge pouch.



[/ Center]

The following subject can be attributed to the universal ones: it is designated as a pouch "for documents and general use"



This device has a unique valve shape, you can’t confuse with anything!



There are also pouches for folding MSL and a flask of a little more than a liter.



The flask, by the way, of the characteristic form ...



Pouch for hand grenades.



A sling is attached to the back wall of the pouch for fixing the strap.



Closes on the "Spanish clip".

All pouches are attached to the base with the help of the "MOLLY" strap.



The vest is filled with cartridge pouches as necessary, in the photo EXCLUSIVELY FOR DEMONSTRATION, the following items are fixed: right bottom - 2 large baggage pouch, above - documents, bottom left - 2 double for AK stores and small luggage. Top - garnet.



Behind - medium baggage and 2 flasks.



In complete set, the vest may look something like this.



At present, to replace the shown vest according to the “Equipment Upgrade Program”, a more modern one has been developed, combined with a bulletproof vest.



The author asks for the quality of the submitted photos. The body for the demonstration of the system was kindly provided by the author.

      Lying on my belly on these latches in front, I think is very unpleasant. They are not even closed for mitigation. What he is good at, but that he is firmly attached to the body and does not hang anything. And the rest is a repetition of the past.

    "Document pouch" - great! Dutch "smoking rooms" are completely crazy. If you put on the harness, the documents remain with the foreman, and you have from the docks, the USSR Armed Forces token and the card in the tablet.
    The author is a fine fellow! Wears a beard and "wearable painting" - MAN! My respect!
    By the way, how does the command relate to tattoos? They pissed me off (drawn heavily).

      By the way, the token was not worn. Fingerprinting was done. At least one finger, let it stay)
      We had mixed feelings about the tattoos ... each one determined ... prisoners were cut off without mercy first of all to those who had a mouse on their shoulders or a dome. This cooled the fervor and many refused to do great show-offs.

        Is not a fact. We also cut the hair from the navel (DNA, sort of). He wore three tokens - one on his neck, the second in his pants (there is a special pocket there), and the third in lace-up boots.

        It depends. For me, this is ritual-religious in the first place.

        We also especially scolded the mouse and forced to drive
        But fingerprinting of the entire palm of not only the fingers, the gene was taken and the teeth were taken for confidence, the documents were handed over to the headquarters and lay to the end of the service from all documents token.

          Yes, he periodically moved the load from shoulder to belt by tightening the belt. His shoulders rested, relaxed again. And without a belt it is very troublesome

      for fans of airsoft or forest walks - that’s it. I do not like to leave documents and a phone in a car unattended. I put them in this pouch - and go. By the way, it is quite roomy.

            I'll tell you a secret. Not all servicemen, and not always, move by car. It may not work out conveniently, you are in a long-distance search (on foot), behind the front line (well, for example), and the map is in the car, in the location, in the box. After that, who is smart?

      Actually, not everyone can walk at "long distance". There are still a lot of different situations, and moments when such a pouch is quite necessary. On patrol, or accompanied. Well, on the "distant" this pouch can be used for other purposes, cartridges are never superfluous.

      A document pouch can be useful to artillerymen, mortar-takers, spotters for ballistic tables, sighting nets, notebooks with memos and calculators, TO service and other military categories.

    Reminds us of our COM. On the one hand, we are better, on the other, worse, in general, it doesn't matter. There are lower loops for the belt, but the pouches are sewn to the chest tightly on the "dead" threads, you will probably have to hem them yourself, and on the Dutch woman you can place them on the slings as you like. The entire economy is fastened with three "fastexes", and we have an iron zipper laughing adjust with armor-without having exclusively side lacing. The evacuation line is not fastened laughing on a training high-rise, I hooked on the armature (after that it was cut down), two more had to go down and pull me off. Who had the opportunity to push it right away and buy a normal one on their own. Now it seems like they have released new options where, as far as possible, they tried to eliminate the shortcomings, although the pouches were both sewn tightly and sewn.

    On the Smersh and Nemesis RPSs, there is nothing to attach the sling to. In the forest, I was very surprised when I dived under the spruce and put me back in the ass .... After that I immediately attached Velcro. A friend too. A bag for docks is a very necessary thing. to hell with useful little things you can stick. Many wrinkle their fingers, forgetting that such names are purely conditional. That's the charm of RPS that everyone picks up for himself.
    Many thanks to the author for the uploaded report.

    Well, actually, when compared with those straps that we were given in 99, then a masterpiece. Those pendant probably back in Afghanistan. And so - I didn’t touch it with my hands, I can’t say good or bad.
