One of the last creations of the Swedish military when it relied on conscription is this webbing set. Nordic quality for peanuts.

When Sweden downsized its military to about two dozen soldiers and one tank, the old kit was dumped to surplus market for ridiculous prices. This stuff is still somewhat widely available. This webbing set represents the newer end of the kit spectrum.

A very traditional belt + suspenders type solution, the "304" is like a mix of older Swedish webbing and US ALICE stuff. Let's go through the components:

The belt is about 5 cm wide traditional combat belt with metal grommets for attaching the suspender hooks and adjustment pins, and once it's properly adjusted, you can use the leather belt part to quickly change it's size on the fly if necessary. The absolute maximum length of the whole belt is about 125 cm - apparently any larger men were deemed unfit for any roles where they might need webbing.

The suspenders are X-type and feature very good adjustments and ALICE-type metal hook attachment. The hooks attach directly to metal grommets on the belt or pouches.

The ammo pouches are made of tough nylon material, with silent metal knob closure. These take five M16 mags (the service rifle was at the time the AK-5, copy of the FN FNC), a few 7,62 NATO mags and even a couple of AK mags. The inside dimensions are about 15 x 20 x 6 cm.

Slap on a couple of water bottle pouches and a buttpack (the US models will fit) and you have a pretty decent webbing set on your hands.

Swedish army surplus

In used, but serviceable condition. We don't know when the old stocks will finally run out of the market, so if you need hard wearing kit for low price, we suggest taking action while these are still available.

Minullakin on tällainen koristeena! Ja erotuksena kuvaan minun tetsarissa on kenttäpullolle pussi/riipuke, ja ostin siihen ruottalaisen vanhan käytetyn kenttäpullon ja kävi siihen kuin nenä päähän!

Tilaamani tetsari oli heikommassa kunnossa kuin kuvien yksilö mutta pikkufiksailulla siitä sai erittäin hyvän kantolaitteen. Vakiotaskujen lisäksi kiinnitettynä omastani löytyy jenkkilän buttpackia, ensisidetaskua ja lipastaskua. Materiaali on erittäin jämäkän oloista ja vehje tuntuu muutenkin hyvältä

I received an unissued one that hadn't even been unpacked. Unbeatable price for a high quality item like this. Contained the two ammo pouches and a open-top canteen cover that maybe will fit a 1 quart water canteen (I don't have one so I can't test, but a NVA 0,7 liter canteen fits well. Other plastic swedish canteens also is 0,7 liter but have a different form than the NVA one). Looks sort of like this one: https://www.varusteleka.com/en/product/us-alice-canteen-cover-surplus/10292

Al in all: Buy it if you need a good quality webbing set with a good amount of relative big pouches. Add a water bottle and you are good to go!

Best price I have found on the web!
Perfect for hunting, I made mine into a "canine-handler" kit ,easily carry stuff without a bag.
Could easily have a few more as "spares"

Nordic quality for pennies. Yes, I have to agree. First impression when I opened the parcel was "Wow, these look f*cking great". I don't know what kind of soldiers were using these, but they must have had a very relaxed conscription period. If it wasn't for some initials written with chalk inside, I would have assumed these were unissued. They could still be unused though. For the price, I had expected a much worse condition. But of course, in Sweden you hardly have any sunshine at all, so you can't compare with British desert camo gear that is extremely faded after six months in some far away land. I bought a few of these, to have extra pouches. They all look basically the same, nice green color, hardly faded at all, manufactured between 1985 and 1992. Some with insulated water bottle pouches, some without. Each set of webbing packed perfectly in the two pouches - Sweden really used to be a very organized country. Surprisingly little warehouse smell, but I'm itching everywhere after trying them on... handwashing them could be a good idea. Perhaps that would also soften them up a bit, there are no shoulder pads and the material is quite old and stiff, not too comfortable right out of the box. Not at all like the German mountain backpack for example.

I heard that airsoft snipers like this webbing. You have the pouches on the sides of your body, which makes it easy to have a low profile when you are lying down. To sum it up: A lot of bang for the buck, but you will not win any fashion awards wearing these. They were introduced in the 1980s, but if I didn't know that, I would have guessed they were from the 1960s or 1970s, they look that old-fashioned to me. Buy two so you can cannibalize a bit and perhaps have two water pouches on each side and a third ammo pouch in the back. Wear this on top of your smock and head out into the woods for the weekend. Who cares if you look like a freak. You probably are anyway.

Very good webbing set, my particular model came with a canteen pouch not shown in the pictures which was a nice surprise.

Aivan käsittämätön laite tällä hintaa! Niin paljon remmejä ja lukkoja että ellei tetsaamaan halua lähteä niin kyseisistä remmeistä ja lukoista + vyöstä voisi jo tuon kyseisen hinnnan maksaa! Ja olen sanaton miten hyvässä kunnossa tämä kyseinen tetsari on! Kiitos!

Great little webbing set for an unbeatable price. The one I received was unissued and as others have stated, it came with a canteen pouch along with the two magazine pouches. That said, the pouch might not be particularly useful for you depending on what kind of water bottles/canteens that you have; the pouch is much too small for your typical US style 1L/1qt canteen. If I recall correctly, the Swedish used a 700 mL or so canteen, so anything around that size should fit, though I do not have any canteens of that size to test that theory out. As well, the belt is indeed narrow enough that ALICE pouches can be attached, so you do have some options for what you want to stick on it. As well, the shoulder straps, while not really padded are wide enough that they do not put a lot of pressure on your shoulders making the webbing relatively comfortable.

Seemingly unused, pretty much mint condition dated 1985. Mine also came with a canteen pouch, however as others have mentioned a 1L canteen is too large for it. Nice and simple webbing set, immense for the price.

Näppärä kevyt valjastetsari. Olkahihnat ovat sen verran ohuet, että eivät haittaa repun tai isommankaan rinkan kantoa; kuitenkin niissä on leveyttä riittävästi. Olen käyttänyt tätä retki- ja jotoshommissa kenttäpullon, ea-pakkauksen ym pikkusälän kuljettamiseen. Jos sotimaan pitäisi lähteä, vaihtaisin toisen taskun peremmin lippaiden kuljettamiseen ja käyttöön sopivaksi; vaikka tuohon venäläiseen kolmen lippaan puuvillataskuun. Nuo alkuperäiset puolikovat "laatikot" eivät ole lipastaskuina kovinkaan hyvät, vaikka tilaa onkin.

Hintaisekseen 5/5. Luulin käyttämättömiksi kunnes toisen laukun pohjalta löytyi kuusenhavu. Istuvat päälle hyvin, älyttömästi säätövaraa. Yleiskäyttöiset kaksi laukkua (ja omassani liian pieni laukku vesipullolle).
Rumat ja eivät pärjää Bundeswehrin värkeille mutta uskomaton hinta-laatu-suhde.
Jos näitä on vielä ensi viikolla, haen 1-2 lisää koska kaiken muun hyvän lisäksi nämä eivät pakattuina vie kuin leivänpaahtimen kokoisen varastotilan.
