I have been using something similar to this for 10 years, I still use it every session and have never needed to replace it..


Thank you , you’re right I’ve been looking and I suppose if it’s good enough for the army 👍

The inner belt is padded and has velcro, but it also has a webbing outer belt with snap clips. Really comfortable even with a few kg's on board. Maybe just get a decent webbing belt and some suitably sized army pouches? :D
I was looking at the webbing belts last night with the pouches separate and they look decent . I do have a full on Milwaukee rig which is still brand new but it has so much going on it would be over the top even though it was way over £100. I bought it for when I’m roofing but in the end went back to traditional carpenters leather pouch .
Maybe too much choice now adays .

I would imagine that suede leather would get pretty messy with the slop that is about at present. :Thinking:

Just to chuck in another thought....
If I'm out on a long hunt, or if I'm expecting a lot of lead (eg on a fishing beach), the weight can build up a fair bit. It can be tedious wandering about with a weighted belt pulling ones trousers ever downwards, also bending down repeatedly (esp after a good lunch) makes a tight belt unpleasant. In these situations, I clip the bag onto a Molle shoulder harness so the weight is all on the shoulders. There are loads of bits and pieces, including the XP baggage that use the molle system.

Or just leave it at the side of the field to collect later.

I like the milk carton idea, great way to keep the pouch clean as well from all the mud. :thumbsup:

I’ve had one for the past 4 ish years. Great bit of kit 👍🏼 the zips need a bit of wax every now and then.
