    The "snake powder" is my best friend when out field, make sure you apply all over especially sweat prone areas. I also bring those guardian purchased wet wipes, $2 for a pack of 3 x 10. Good for wipe downs at the end of the day, then apply the powder to keep dry.
    Nowadays they got those solution to soak ur no 4 in i think that one is not bad!

    Ya, that solution is for use in overseas exercise. Last time we did that for Ex Wallaby in Australia. Its called Pynosect. It says "Treated uniforms provide protection to body from bites of mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers and human body lice". Haha...have one extra bottle of it with me cause last time when i issue them out to the men, there's extra.

    Guys I was poor at polishing shoes, someone please share their tips on getting that shine...

    Oh, I always bring a little snack or drink in my ammo pouches or in the pockets when going on excercise, you never know when the next meal comes.

    here's how i shine my boots.

    - one THICK layer of KIWI evenly over the surface, leave for 5mins.
    - add one thin layer of kiwi over your brush and start brushing lightly over the surface you want to shine. add small amount of water if you want.
    - after you get a decent brush shine, it's time to use the cloth method. wrap 1-2layers of polish cloth around your forefinger, and add a thin layer of kiwi. start rubbing the surface you want to shin, going in circles. same as the above, add small amount of water whilst doing so.

    from my personal experience, it's more difficult to shine brand new boots. my chiong sua boots from BMT can shine more than my parade boots (which i polished for 2hours) with a brush and some kiwi in 5mins.

    pity the 3G Sim card cannot be used on non-3G phones.

    Default Packs

    The fullpack has evolved from a canvas old and uncomfortable thing to a much better designed one these days.

    The key points remain the same.

    Comfort is paramount -
    • pad the pack
    • make sure it fit you, tighten the straps properly
    • heavy items at the bottom
    Ergonomics is second -
    • when doing stand bys, make sure everything is easy to remove
    • put a trash bag for quick removal and waterproofs the bag
    • put those items you use frequently at the sides.
    Label your pack - everyone has the same one

    Try it on with the proper weight before the field excercise or road march.

    For those with extra stuff, eg GPMG, 84mm etc, make sure you get the weight and position sorted with the extra load in place.

    Strap everything down, esp in jungle ops, or you will lose items.

    Bring an extra set of underwear and socks

    Don't forget the fork and spoon so you do not need to open your carefully packed set.

    As a reservist, the use of non-standard equipment is more permitted, so use that to pack to your comfort. I use lots of Camelbak products, and attach a small one to my SBO.

    A side bag or muesli bag keeps my maps, which I store in a waterproof case.

    Bring extra food and items you wish to eat on a long ops or field excercise.
