After going to Fort Geroge today,, and talking to the guys there I have decided to get this. Well maybe....


This seem to be the best Package Deal for someone like me that has nothing.

Now what do you guys think, and what should I change.

What should I add to it. I want to run a M1A1 and 1911 .45

http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=USCUWACI

I was thinking:

Standard uniform
M-1C Paratrooper Helmet, Economy
Parachute First Aid Packet
M1942 Jump Uniform
Jump Boots
Unit Patch, machine-embroidered
Rank Insignia, Pair
US trouser belt
M1936 or M1943 Suspenders
M1924 First Aid Pouch
Musette Bag
T-Handle Shovel w/cover
M1910 Canteen Cover
M1923 Cartridge Belt or BAR Belt


But I will change/swap out

Substitute Trouser Suspenders for Trouser Belt
Add Helmet Net
Add Jeep or A4 Cap
Add Wool Shirt


Also I want to get the M3 Shoulder Holster

All looks good but I would suggest that you get both Trouser Suspenders and Trouser Belt. I know it seems like over kill but you won't be sorry when you start filling your pant pockets with stuff. Best investment I made were getting the suspenders... it also helps to keep your pants from splitting at the seems.

This is the one you are looking for.

The piping should be blue. If you look at some of the pictures in the after action report section you will find pics of the guys wearing theirs

That's what I like about WPG... they are at your door within days and not weeks.

Both go on the left. Cap patch on the left and arm patch on the left as well.
