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.

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.

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.

Definately worn but picture is correct. I washed mine in washing mashine on gentle cycle and dryed in sun. I liked mine so much I bougut two. Perfect match with bergen they sell now making complete set. Do some reasearch to get it set up properly making it very sturdy and it will not rattle around. Perfect set up for bugout rig. Thanks KS

Review by Kriegshunde
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
Review by David
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.
