Here is a question that might generate some new ideas for equipment. - Limey Pete - 01-19-2018

What items are good that armies of the world issue to their forces?
For instance I can think of a few.

The Swiss Army Knife.

The US P38 can opener.

British Army mess tins.

The German Army Jerry can.

Any more?

Fleece jackets
BDUs

The Canadian military issues the Russell #3 Boat and #4 Survival knives top shelf items both.
The Canadian Arctic Parka although heavy in weight might be one of the best  in the world
The new Canadian Ranger patrol rifle is manufactured by Sako of Finland but assembled by Colt Canada.

A few more:
British Army headover.
More adaptable than a balaclava.
Buy one in wool if possible
USA MREs.
Others issue MREs, but none are as good as US Army MREs
German Army Flecktarn jacket.
I bought mine in Fort Worth. So many good advantages that I cannot list them all.
They now have a German Army Gore-Tex Flecktarn jacket.

How can it be a AF survival knife when it does not have a little compass in the top Rich?

Woodies are good, I saw one in a jacket form once.
They are very warm for the weight they are.

Limey, It is good to hear from you old friend.   The US airforce survival knife is plain jane and ugly but functional kinda like some brits I know.

I loved my poncho liner.
The poncho was ok.  It kept a person's body mostly dry, but I think they were designed to pour directly into your boots regardless of how tall the wearer is.

Alas Rich, this Brit does not become functional until ten in the morning nowadays, due to the adverse effects of being a Pattaya Sin City playboy.  Wink

The forum does not read much from Luke lately; did he ever move to Idaho?

I don't see or hear much from Luke. Since I moved up into the Snob Hill part of town, it is about an hour and a half to get over to his place.
