Description

Original South African 70 Pattern Webbing Set.

This original South African 70 Pattern webbing features eight magazine pouches designed to each hold two twenty round FAL magazines. It has two ‘hippo’ pouches that sit at the rear of the kit, over the wearer’s kidneys, that are intended for holding ammunition belts for the units’ machine gunner. There is also a haversack that can be worn on the front or rear. These excellent pieces of South African surplus also include a water canteen holder and an original water canteen.

The South African 70 Pattern Webbing was used by both South African Defence Forces and the South West African Police, replacing the earlier 61 Pattern. The South African 70 Pattern was based on the popular British 58 Pattern webbing, with some adjustments for the hotter African climate. The webbing sets were used extensively by South African forces during the 1970’s and 1980’s.

This is an excellent piece of original South African 70 Pattern surplus webbing that is assembled and ready to use.

Please note that due to their surplus nature there may be some signs of wear or some variation in design.
