Yep, Another for Strikeforce (I discovered them thru Ebay).

Both me and my brother have bought gear from them and the service was good and fast delivery.
My bro got a pair of side pouches and related webbing (looked brand new) for £25 inc P&P.

I'm interested the Genuine Army Surplus are rated as expensive delivery - £5.95 for 10 24 hour ration packs seems cheap to me. When you think that they did me 24 hr packs at £5 each delivered, thats a bargain in my book. I don't use them much but when you add in everything from the puritabs onwards, they are stonking value

Not to mention that they are practically giving away Nanok Sleeping bags.

Waiting on a delivery from Genuine Army Surplus.

I ordered a Nanok bag (less than half what I paid 6 months back) for my boy and my mate ordered four of them :p

Getting a couple of ration packs too :D

The postage is a set fee for up to 20 kilos it seems so the whole lot is coming for that!

Aye, I just checked Genuine Army Surplus and they have a reasonable rate. Should have done more thorough checking before I posted:eek:
Delivery charges to the Highlands can be very high though, some places charge 10 to 15 quid compared with about 5 quid for the rest of the country. The worst was B&Q who wanted to charge 55 quid delivery for a 15 quid cold frame:soapbox:
I don't buy from these shops, though they might well be fine if you're not so far away. The most I payed for delivery of a normal sized order is 6.50, at that was only for something I particularly wanted.

My experience with Surplus and Adventure was terrible; spent around £50 on they're online shop, patiently waited two months for product before getting irate, nothing turned up, spent weeks making around 20-30 phone calls trying to get a refund for my fithty quid, I was constantly lied to by two members of staff there. Refund never came through until I got trading standards involved.

I placed and order with Surplusandoutdoors on Thursday morning and got it the next day.:lmao:

Placed and order for a couple of Nanok -10's earler in the week from Genuinearmysurplus so hoping everything goes ok there!

I had placed an order with Ironcladoutdoors, never got my delivery and only after 5 weeks of mucking around and being lied to, eventually got a refund.:censored: , so not recommended.

Great to see all these links, will have to add these to the list.

Does anyone have experience with these shops shipping to the rest of Europe? (Holland)

Since we don't have any good online (or 'real' ) surplus shops that I know of.

You guys seem to have loads!

As far as physical shops go try Harpers on Thurso High Street, if you're in the area. It's mainly fishing tackle but they have a reasonable bit of army surplus at good prices.
It's the only army surplus shop I know in the whole north half of Scotland. There's not even one in Inverness or Aberdeen, at least that I've found.
