Source WLPS hydration reservoir, 3L

A belt to go with the M05 vest. While perfecting the fit of the vest, the belt serves as a base for the leg rig attachment.
Finnish M05 drop leg platform
A sturdy platform for anything that needs to be used quickly, like a dump pouch. Part of the new Finnish army M05 system.
Finnish M05 grenade pouch M10
The updated version of the M05 grenade pouch, a great improvement over the old design. Meant for a single hand/smoke grenade.
Finnish M05 rucksack, large
The M05 load bearing system also includes one of these huge, monstrous rucksacks, and sack is indeed the correct term. This pack is designed to simply carry a f*ckload of stuff, not to be comfy, easy to use or anything, just to carry a lot of stuff from point A to B. Totally bombproof construction and tough materials make this a sure bet!
Finnish M05 rucksack, small
The modern Finnish army backpack is the most succesful laymans-pack yet issued by our military. Long gone are the formless "Sipulisäkki" (Onion sack) of WW2 vintage, or the cold war era M85 "Palloreppu" (Ball pack)! These new ones are virtually indestructible and simple as their predecessors, but as a new feature surprisingly nice to use and carry!
Finnish M05 dump pouch
Now this is something! The special forces version of the Finnish M05 dump pouch, now available to mere mortals for the very first time. This model is a definitive improvement over the standard version, quite a clever thing to be honest!
Sioen Tacticum Plate Carrier
The Tacticum Plate Carrier is a very modular and quickly configureable plate carrier design based on the Finnish military issue M13 model.
Tasmanian Tiger Cig Bag
Well, it's a tactical cigarette pouch. If you smoke, what the hell are you reading this for, grab one already! But not only for cigarettes: this actually is a nice handy little utility pouch.
Särmä TST Admin-2 pouch w/ side pocket
Everybody needs their own "field office", this admin pouch is a tried and tested common design, two flat compartments and a tool pocket on the outside. Fits all your little notebooks etc. and has generous loop surface for name, rank and silly "Cock Sucking Crusader" patches on the front. On the side we have a separate compartment for tools or a tourniquet.
Sioen Tacticum Vest, NIJ IIIA
The Tacticum Vest is based on the Finnish military M10 body armour, a highly modular and configureable design which can be upgraded with added protection and SAPI style rifle threat plates if necessary. The Tacticum Vest offers good NIJ IIIA ballistic coverage for protection against shrapnel and pistol caliber bullets, additional neck, bicep, groin and thigh protection can also be added if needed.
The official combat vest base of the Finnish army, newest model. The high price tag hides behind a vest that meets military specifications. No wonder, as the same manufacturer makes these for the army.
Note:the pouches seen in the extra picture are not included.
Essentially, this is a somewhat ordinary vest base. On the outside you will find:
- All available space filled with PALS loops.
- Closure with four plastic (ITW Nexus) buckles.
- Side adjustment with elastic cords. Now, here's the big plus: these can be adjusted a lot, so the Small-Medium vest will snugly fit even the smaller users, a rarity in these type of vests.
- Friction pads, sling/shoulder strap stoppers and velcro loops at both shoulders - the vest is lefty-compatible as well. Drinking tube can be secured through the velcro loops.
- Reflective tag on the neck. Can be hidden, if not needed.
On the inside:
- Belt loops for the M05 belt. Of course, most will fit through but the heavy duty M05 belt works best.
- Flat document pockets with velcro closure on both sides of the front panels.
- A pocket for a hydration system on the back panel. Most 2-3 l bladders should fit.
- A small window for a name tag.
- Carrying handle in the neck, evacuation/dragging handles in the armpits. Do not use the neck handle for dragging.
Made of military grade cordura, with PU-coating on the inside. The quality is excellent overall, as should be expected.
