What ALICE components are these marines wearing?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, thinking of making a USMC force recon loadout.

 

Can anyone tell me what webbing this is? I think its A.L.I.C.E. webbing but I'm no expert.

 

Change of topic, now that I know it is indeed ALICE webbing, Can anyone tell me exactly what these marines are wearing and if possible where I can buy it from?

Looks like those marines seem to be wearing ALICE packs so I can assume they have the same system webbing on. If in doubt, ask at a milsim forum :)

yep that's definitely ALICE webbing... there aren't any specific type just what pouches go where very similar to PLCE

 

If they're wearing ALICE there is a high chance one of them would have a LBV as well

Thanks guys!

Is an LBV required with the ALICE set up? Bit of a noob when it comes to webbing lol.

Nope its a vet formt he same period as ALICE webbing, mainly used by grenediers. LBV stand for Load Bearing Vest. I can't see one for sure in the picture but going off assumptions the may be someone wearing one.

The kit they'e got I can see clearly is ALICE webbing and ALICE backpacks

 

 

Here's some pics:

Just seen the change of topic... its impossible to see exactly what set up they have, they'll most likely have their own personal set up with the pouches in the order they like

Nick, is that a compass/medical pouch in the center?

 

Also, does anyone know where I can buy a Butt pack and a compass pouch new?

 

Seen the compass pouches second hand in bad condition or theyre out of stock where I have seen them.

 

Haven't been able to locate an LC2 style buttpack, only bumbags labelled as military packs on ebay....

Compass, ammo, ammo, canteen, medic, canteen, bianchi m12 holster, ammo

With another compass pouch on the y-harness

 

Just keep trawling eBay its how I eventually found my buttpack

Thanks Nutster.

 

Is there a specific name for the butt pack, other than butt pack? Might be why I'm having trouble finding one lol.

Just search lc2 lc1 Alice etc etc mate. Took me AGES, in the end I got a replica one which doesn't look too bad, it's a tad shiney though

Yeah, the only ones I've seen are from 'nam and seriously beat up, or shiny replicas from the states with a £25 shipping tag.

 

How do the replicas hold up? If theyre good enough I might just go with one and stick it in the washing machine before I use it because I desperately need some extra storage!

Sorted, I'll get one of those when funds allow and then all I need to procure is a medical pouch,compass pouch and an entrenching tool cover :)

 

Also need to secure some sort of sheath for a Ka-Bar, I'm thinking shoulder mounted like in the films?
