Dutch modular combat vest, DPM, surplus
A pretty damn good MOLLE compatible combat vest. Well made, tough and cheap, as military surplus should be. Dutch DPM for a slight extra camouflaging touch.
Of all the armies, it's funny how the Dutch military seems to make particularly simple, efficient and no-bullshit combat gear. They also let it go for cheap, which means you get proper mil-spec quality stuff for a very decent price, you just have to accept the fact it's pre-used.
A solid package
- Covers the whole upper body, PALS webbing all around.
- The base material is breathable mesh.
- Three quick-release buckles close the front.
- Elastic loops on the shoulders for hydration bladder tubes etc.
- A belt "tunnel" on the inside, can perfectly well be worn without a belt.
- Adjustable shoulders, sides and front. Well adjustable and wearable with or without body armour underneath.
- D-rings around the bottom for attachment of extra kit.
- Large, zippered document pockets against the chest, one has a hidden pistol holster within.
- Rescue handle on the back.
Naturally the whole thing is made of mil-spec materials, so it's tough and has some kinda NIR properties.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
