I have only saw one picture showing a Marines with such vest.
Thanks for your help guys!

Naw that'll be fine, I have built an OIF kit for my collection, I then built a current kit (CB IBA). I'm now moving on to finish a Nam kit now.

Oh and Drake... I hate you but I found some Spartan I for way cheaper

Well I thought I'd keep my thread alive!

For all those looking for Marines kit here's a basic kitlist through different stages of OIF, I'm also only listing the regular grunts kit as I have no great interest in Force Recon

OIF I 2003:

Uniform: 3 colors desert cammies / desert marpat (although all the invasion was done in MOPP suit, no one should be stupid enough to play a game in this)
Helmet: PASGT or LWH (rarer) w/ 3 colors desert cover or desert marpat cover
Body armor: Woodland or CB IBA
Load carrying Equipment: FLC loaded with mix'n'match of ALICE and SDS woodland pouches
Boots: Tan Altama or Belleville 550 ST
Goggles: SWD w/ socks sleeve
Pistol holster: Really though to say if one was an absolute standard... M12, M12 w/ hip extender, privately bought drop leg
Gloves: Cold weather glove liner (od), pilot flight gloves
Weapons: M16A2, M16A4, SAW MKII, M9
Misc: M40 gas mask bag could be used as a dump mag, an old PASGT 3 color desert cover was sometimes layered over woodland IBA to obviously suit them better for desert use









OIF II: Fallujah insurgency 2004

Uniform: desert marpat
Helmet: PASGT (rarer) or LWH w/ desert marpat cover
Body armor: Woodland or CB IBA
Load carrying Equipment: FLC loaded with mix'n'match of ALICE and SDS woodland pouches (by then most grunt wore pouches on the IBA)
Boots: Belleville 550 ST
Goggles: ESS Profile (black)
Pistol holster: Really though to say if one was an absolute standard... M12, M12 w/ hip extender, privately bought drop leg
Gloves: pilot flight gloves, privately purchased
Weapons: M16A2, M16A4, SAW MKII (some modded variants were there too), M9
Misc: M40 gas mask bag could be used as a dump mag






Transitionnal (OIF III through OIF V)

Uniform: desert marpat or tan pilot flight suit
Helmet: LWH w/ desert marpat cover
Body armor: CB IBA w/side panels (both early issue and experimental), Spartan I and II
Load carrying Equipment: Mostly directly on vest (Eagle CB pouches, AITES IFAK, some SDS CT stuff and SDS woodland), althought some aftermarket chestrigs and vest seems to be present too
Boots: Belleville 550 ST
Goggles: ESS Profile (tan)
Pistol holster: Aftermarket
Gloves: pilot flight gloves, privately purchased
Weapons: M16A4, M4, SAW (Para, MKII w/ Para stock)
Misc:








Current

Uniform: desert marpat or tan pilot flight suit or Marpat FROG
Helmet: LWH w/ desert marpat cover
Body armor: MTV - MCAV (Eagle plate carrier w/ cumberbund)
Load carrying Equipment: Mostly directly on vest (Eagle CB pouches, AITES IFAK, some SDS CT stuff and SDS woodland), althought some aftermarket chestrigs and vest seems to be present too

Ebay is your best bet. It's really cheap. Other than that I bought some in local surplus over time

Pantac made it!!! Though I'll personnaly stick with my PB IBA since the MTV looks way too fucking bulky for my liking...

Little question about the sam-r. Are they based on Colt or on FN M16?
