Current state of individual equipment (load bearing equipment) in Polish Land Forces
Unfortunately, although some promising ideas and concepts offered by different companies appeared here and there, although there were declarations made by more and less influential people – from both the civilian and the military environment, and although the interested parties voiced specific needs in a clear manner, nothing has changed, in fact. The course of action was still to order and purchase archaic individual equipment for oodles of money – and the orders for Lubawa wz. 998 tactical vests, which are still terrible, were not the worst thing; the worst thing was purchasing tons of wz.67 webbing. Yes, old-school webbing, designed more than half a century ago, and now perfect for museum. There were similarly horrendous amounts of cash spent on retrofiting of steel helmets too.
