Playing with my 550D again. This time I shot my helmets.

This should be the final update of my FSBE II kit list. I have not been searching for anymore FSBE II items to buy. It’s very likely that I will stop collecting this, unless I find something really special or cheap to buy.

I got these 2 repro MICH helmets for my Ranger and FSBE loadouts. They were super cheap and initially I was afraid that they might be too small for my huge head. Ideally I need a size L when wearing a headset. These are bigger than the J-Tech/JUST MICH and they fit perfectly on my large noggin’ with a headset.

Ranger lid as per 2007 SOP (standard operating procedure)

tan color (since I can’t get my hands on Rustoleum 1917 spray paint)
bolts sharpied black
name above left ear in capital letters no bigger than 3/8 inches
2×3 inch velcro on center top and center back
velcro’d down goggle retention straps (not sure about the color, might need OD straps)
1 hole norotos shroud

And an old school MICH with an old 1 hole shroud for my FSBE loadout

Family picture

Also new to the collection are these Bollé X-800 goggles, which I can use for either my FSBE loadout or my WIP (work in progress) CAG loadout.

Some woodland items came in the mail today.

Another two pouches arrived today from the US. These are the Specialty Defense Systems sustainment pouches.

I have put one on the back of my Guarder replica Amphibious Assault Vest (AAV), replacing the Tactical Tailor hydration carrier. I opted for the sustainment pouch, because it has been seen more in reference pictures.

The other one has been put on my duty belt and will act as a dump pouch.

Just got this in today. It’s an SDS SAW 200rd ammo pouch.

But this is how the Force Recon guys used it. As a gas mask carrier.
