A: Yep, it's the perfect opportunity to test out your belt order and kit.

:rofl: Yes, in your intended kit. As Headshot said, it's a perfect time to see if your kit fits properly, or needs adjustment/finetuning/throwing in the bin. With prolonged activity, you'll find out what rubs, rattles, flaps or pinches very quickly.

I should have some corcorans by then (ATF ones), so I'll be grimacing a bit as I break them in as well. Oh well, no pain, no gain!

As a "thankyou" to our loyal players, we've got some "tactical freebies" to give away to people at this event, which you will find useful on the day, for Jedburgh itself and for other events in the future. :good:

My experience of Corcorans is that they break in quickly with little discomfort.

Indeed HS, mine are size 9, whereas I'm pushing size 11, they rubbed like buggery for a few games, then all of a sudden they felt really comfortable, prolly should get some of those shoe stretchers in there for interim periods between games.

Just got my brace attachements and commando bergan off ebay, so my kit's all sorted :)

? about webbing, did they attach any extra pouches to their webbing for the carring of extra kit/rations or did they stick to just the basic rig?

Very much down to the individual and mission. We'll be posting up a kitlist soon and you can tailor your setup from that. Personally, my belt kit is just a pistol, waterbottle and ammo pouch. Other kit is going in my pockets and the rest in my bergen.

Cool, my work webbing is set up with a full set of pouches where I can carry just about everything that I need to survive, I even have room for a warm top in there, am thinking the same for this but don't want to over load and make it look like a 58'P set of webbing, have got my bergan too, but if needs must I want to be able to dump the bergan and survive the night with belt rig.

I'm working on the old theory of "Fight off your webbing, live off your bergen, survive off your pockets". We won't be out long enough to need any real survival kit, so no need for tons of gear. We'll be focussing on keeping it relevant and building knowledge up in "layers" through the day.

my bergan is mainly for my sleeping system/gun gas/spare clothes in case of accident, mags will be in a Sten Bandolier, and pouches will have food/hex stove/water/spare bats etc, pocket contents will have all the little bits and bobs to get by

I did some practice packing last year, and found I could get everything I needed in pockets, ammo pouches, small and large pack.

Yep, it's amazing how little you actually need. We tend to complicate it at most games, with extra guns, spare uniforms and a load of other superfluous stuff. You can get everything you need in bergen, pockets and belt kit and still have room for some "concession" kit, like modern waterproofs should the poo hit the fan.
