British Osprey load bearing vest package, Desert DPM, surplus
A genuine British Osprey combat vest. Here's a good package deal with some useful pouches. Used.
Note: the body armour seen in the pictures is not included.
The package includes something like this:
- Osprey load bearing vest base
- 2 pcs SA80 Ammo Pouches
- 2 pcs Utility Pouches
- AP Grenade Pouch
- Small Utility Pouch
- Medical Pouch
- Water Bottle Pouch
Note 2: the above list is an example of what you might get. The composition of the pouches might vary a bit. Hey, a genuine Osprey set for this price is a solid deal if you ask us!
The British Osprey system is similar to the US MOLLE system and Interceptor body armour. The vest is meant to be worn over body armor and equipped with the pouches you need where you need them.
The vest itself has two smaller and two larger hidden pockets. The large pocket on the right fits a pistol and two magazines. The back has a small pocket for a map or wallet. On the outside you'll find quick release buckles for a PLCE rucksack side pouch or compatible hydration carriers.
All pouches and the vest itself feature the Desert DPM camo pattern and NIR protection as usual with modern war stuff.
Osprey vests have been in use in Iraq and Afghanistan by all branches of British armed forces.
The vest is designed to be worn over body armour, but it doesn't have to be specifically the Osprey body armour. Without body armour you should have a lot of clothes or weight, because even when adjusted all the way down the circumference around the torso is about 100 cm. The sides are adjusted with weaved drawcords and the length is adjusted at the shoulders. The adjustments were made with bigger fellows in mind.
The pouch attachment is very similar to the PALS webbing found on MOLLE gear. The measurements are slightly different, but generally any Osprey stuff goes together with MOLLE either way. The vest is covered with webbing so you have a lot of room for creative solutions.
Used army surplus
Used, and in perfectly serviceable condition. The vest in the picture is unissued, so expect a somewhat more faded vest.

For this amount of money, it's not a bargain, it's a steal!

Great value for anybody interested in outdoorsy stuff. Delivery from Finland to the UK in 3 days was pretty damn good too!
