Now, yah see it all works out.

I suspect I am of a size with ArkAngel (although I absolutely refuse to wiggle).

Got the yoke set up okay (with the aid of Batfinks instructions), but whoever designed these things need to understand that we don't all "follow the yellow brick road". So took gregorachs advice and added a set of extension straps. Result! Lovely adjustable, comfy fit. Photos available of how to stick it all together if anyone else ever struggles (although if you follow Batfinks instructions and figure the extension straps out for yourself it aint hard)

I have the pockets for myself, and know the use for the female clips.
Just out of curosity, can anyone tell me what the male clips at the top of the side pockets are for?
Thanks in advance,
Jed

by connecting the male & female clips a single pouch can be connected to the yoke via the 2 webbing loops at the top of the yoke.

Just to clarify Rob's comment - they are for connecting the PLCE Side pouches to the Webbing Yoke - rather than the side pouch yoke (which has PLCE QR clips on it already!).



You poke the male clips (or female... whichever!) under the webbing on loops, and then it's partner over the top - forming a loop around the loop. It's relatively secure - although the QR clips are notoriously weap and fragile - if there is a weakness in them, you'll suddenly find your side pouch hanging off you at a funny angle!

(I hate the way that "webbing" has "webbing" on it - it just confuses the whole issue!)

Do you guys actually use your webbing for camping?

I have an OG PLCE set and have attached the side pockets to the back and basically now i can fit all i need for a 2 day or overnight camp in it..and i dont even have a crusader mug or cooker!, I would wear it but try not to look military because you always get those looks if your walking through the woods like "wannabe rambo there" or the occasional person with no respect screaming "ey up soldier!" :aargh4:

Oh and red if your bothered, or for future incase any one looks at this thread i can post a picture of how i attached both side pockets securly to the webbing yoke:notworthy :aargh4:

Thanks Cal but I only wanted to use my PLACE side pockets as a daysack having dumped my larger Sabre when pitching camp. With Ark Angel and Batfinks assistance this now part of my every day kit and well used. I don't use any webbing as such - my knife and possibles pouch are my belt kit!

Can i also recommend the Medic Side pouches instead of the std ones



as the whole side zips round like a suitcase you can accesss everything with out delving down or unpacking from the top plus it has the handy Elasitic loops on one side for bits Pens, Clipper, Spoon knife 35mm film canisters etc a handy clear wallet for maps documents or what ever etc and a nice carry strap to use as a Hand bag :D plus it fits the Yoke system

I use one on one side and a std pouch on the other

Yeah, a bit... Maybe I'm just disorganised, but I always find that I'm forever leaving stuff lying around, or I end up jamming loads of stuff in the cargo pockets of my trousers until I can barely walk. A minimal webbing set goes a long way towards solving both problems at once. Bug repellent, tinder pouch, KFS, mug, water bottle, whetstone, etc, etc, etc... It's all got a proper place now.

I know I'm an old ba..codger, but '58 webbing was a lot easier than all this fandango!

The easiest way I've come across is to put everything into a big 'sack; the cooker & fuel in the side pokets.

Not anymore, couple of reasons: one, it was more of a hinderance than a help, because i never could get it set up to my preferences AND two, it made me look like a complete wally, and did nothing for the girls (which is the main reason I finaly stopped)
Not to be compleately discouraged, I still carry far to much on my belt........

Theres two types of yokes, The webbing yoke for the PLCE webbing and the Daysack yoke for the day sack.
sounds like you need the daysack yoke with the quick release clips attatched to it, you'll also need the 2 straps to attatch onto the yoke going to the bottom of the pouches. ALSO can differ if you have dpm or o/g pouches as the dpm have extra male clips (to attatch onto the webbing yoke).

Feed the waist belt trough the loops on the back of the single pouch,DON'T attach the clipsas these are what the shoulder straps attach to.The waist belt stabilises the bottom of a single pouch,if you don't use the waist belt around your waist, just wrap it around the pouch.

Thanks for that. Managed to work it out a while after the post.
