The British Army DPM Combat Harness Set was designed to give soldiers in the British Army an effective means of transporting fighting gear into the field for combat operations. By utilizing this combat set, British soldiers were able to ensure that important equipment was within arms reach when they needed it the most - such as when engaged in an active firefight with the enemy.

Like most modern combat sets, the British DPM Combat Set was capable of being configured to suit the individual soldiers needs. Depending upon your role in your squad, you may need additional magazines for your rifle. Should you find yourself as your squads machine gunner, you would want more utility pouches to hold tools necessary to maintain your GPMG. With the flexibility and customization that is possible with a combat set like this, soldiers were able to tailor their load out gear to be specific to their own role without having to carry unnecessary equipment.

Included with each combat harness set are 1 x Yoke, 1 x Pistol Belt, 2 x Double Ammunition Pouches (8 30rd M16 Mag Capacity), 2 x Utility Pouches, and 1 x Bayonet Frog which brings the total to seven pieces of combat gear. The utility pouches are huge, with plenty of storage space to carry things like first aid supplies, rations, canteens, or any other gear you find essential to your needs. All of the pouches are double sealed with both Velcro as well as quick release straps to ensure your gear stays inside until you are ready to deploy it. The main yoke and pistol belt are both adjustable to fit, but they will only size up to what would be the high side of the British Army physical fitness charts. So if you are an extra large, no problem fitting this combat set to your body comfortably - if your a XXXL sized man, you will need to use this combat set for display purposes only.

Not a bad deal. The ammo pouches were worn but still have a lot of use. Pretty easy to get replacements cheap. The other pouches were OK and the yoke {harness} and belt were excellent. Review by Terry (Posted on 4/27/2017)

The method of attachment is definitely more complicated than the ALICE system. To attach two Small Arms pouches (holding 3 M4 magazines each) to an ALICE belt, you simply use four small clips. To attach a PLCE dual ammunition pouch holding 6 magazines total, you use 2 plastic clips, 2 sewn-in-place straps and 2 straps that fasten with velcro and snap closure.
However, the PLCE system is more comfortable. ALICE clips can dig into my waist, especially if I am bent over or sitting with my knees drawn up to my chest. And the six-point attachment system of the PLCE leads to a much more balanced and stable platform. Between the two, I greatly prefer the PLCE.

One heavy duty piece of kit. Mine came with 2x 2 cell mag pouches, 1x utility pouch ,1x water bottle pouch, 1x bayonet frog and harness.
One of the 2 cell mag pouches was heavily used but has many more years of use left in it. These mag pouches will hold 3 AR mags or two..308 mats each.
Thinking about ordering another combat set.

Good Value but not the complete set

Two of the Four pouches were heavily used. According to my research on YouTube, there are some important pieces missing: a 2nd belt that goes thru the bottom loops of the pouches and a bungie cord. It is the real-McCoy. Wish the larger pouch is also included. Not yet field tested. According to YouTube, you can pack lots of stuff with the provided pouches. Still need a small rucksack.
