A Group Shot or…. I emptied my shed!

A challenge was set awhile back by someone who didn’t believe me when I said I have “a few packs”.

This is after doing a decent cull of the herd last year too.

So what do we have here?

*Ahem*

21x packs of various types/sizes

1x satchel (HRO)

3x sets of chest webbing (I know there’s another set of belt webbing somewhere in the shed)

2x plate carriers

.

Can anyone pick what I’ve got in the line-up?
