I have used them a couple of times thus far for kit. I find them easy to deal with, and fairly quick with their communications. They are able to provide a quote including shipping, but not including the VAT. They do take Pay Pal. They have a wide range of British, US and German kit, both repro and original.

The prices are fair, just keep in mind that they are in pounds sterling.

As for shipping, they are very quick, and easy to deal with.

I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for kit.

I've used them a couple of times and highly recommend them. The price you see is with the VAT included which doesn't apply to us, but when you get your bill it works out the same (VAT is equal to shipping).

Good quality stuff.

Bought all my kit with them. Very good providers. Well priced, fast delivery and good advice. I called once asking for a cap badge I needed in 3 days maximum but I didn't want to pay next day delivery charge. The kind women dispatched it that day on first class and I got it next day with the charge! They are very good and I recommend them.

Just got my badges today for my BD. Stupidly prompt shipping, a complete order.

Now to decide what I need/want next.

Just thought I would point out to anyone doing a British impression that they're second hand webbing kit is great! I bought it at Christmas for 40 (though the price is normally around 50) and I finally put it together this weekend at my training weekend. Everything was fine. Will need to re-blanco it at some point but that's not a top priority. They did give me two cross straps that were the same (basically one didn't have the loop) but not a major problem and easily fixed by sewing something on. One of my mates is getting a spare one from his collection anyways. So I'm ok. And for 40 you can't complain. Came with:

- 1 small pack.
- 2 ammo pouches.
- 2 cross straps.
- 2 l-straps.
- 1 belt.
- 1 bottle and carrier.

I bought my frog and bayonet separate for 25 I think it was, and might get an e-tool later. But all in all 40 is a bargain for an almost complete set (but beware of postage). Brilliant for new starters who don't have alot of cash. Do look into sizes though, when I bought it I think they only had normal size (which is perfect for me but not necessarily for others. lol.). I can get some pics if anyone is interested, oh and the code for them is BE002 if you want to look it up.
