Särmä TST Dump pouch

This dump pouch is cleverly made out of a single piece of fabric, simple and tough, the construction also makes the pouch keeps it´s shape exceptionally well without any hard plastic stiffeners! Designed to store a handful of RK/AK magazines, works very well as pistol dump too.
Finnish M05 combat vest
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.
For the first time in the history of the Finnish army, the soldiers are actually issued a dedicated pouch for the water bottle. Takes the 1 quart US type canteen along with the more rectangular Finnish model.
The pull tabs are operated by yanking them slightly sideways. If pulled straight, they won't open up as easily. They can be secured pretty well (i.e. for a parachute drop) by running the additional plastic tabs through the loops beofre closing the two-prong main tabs.
Made of military grade cordura, with PU-coating on the inside. The quality is excellent overall, as should be expected.
