    E-mart got sell, but low quality type. Shrinks & the dye runs after contact with water.
    IF you are getting a pair of gloves, don't ever buy nike brand. The instructors will tell you to just do it and don't complain.

    Well, to recap some of the stuff menioned earlier by other members:

    Small Lock - Not sure what the bunks look like these days but we sure had to bring our own lock for our personal locker. Trust me, guys over there steal anything and they will. And get a good one even if it's small. Rule of thumb is, try not to bring something too valuable.

    Black Tape (Electrical) - Multipurpose. Use it to gaff your army equipment, very useful.

    Small Torch/Swiss Army Knife - Enough said.

    Permanent markers - You need them to personalise a lot of your equipment.

    Food (Dry) - If you get hungry around the clock like me no matter how much they feed you, then you better stock up on some biscuits, energy bars or anything dry and non-messy. You probably wouldn't want the SAF dry rations.

    Light medication - Always useful. You never know when you're gonna get fever or diahrrea in the middle of the night or during training. Some panadols, anti-purging pills, lozenges...even plasters and ointment for minor cuts and bruises will always come in handy. I know there's a medical centre available but trust me, you wouldn't want to be queuing up for those things.

    In general, I would bring a little of things that are useful to you. From experience, the things I usually wanted to get were often out of stock.

    Good luck!
