                                                   Today, you can easily find surplus items online
                                                  and in your local military surplus stores. However,
                                                  before your favorite army and navy surplus items
                                                  were available to the public, they were utilized by
the military, and each piece served a specific function. Here's some history on army and navy
surplus items you may not have known.


You could visit Go Here for intelligent specifics.Now you're probably curious as to why these
perfectly good vehicles that once served a valuable purpose for our nation are now being
auctioned off to the general public for a fraction of what the army had originally paid for them.
There are a couple of reasons for this. The first reason is simple: they're old. That's right -- like a
fine wine -- these cars, jeeps and trucks will inevitably hit their peak and eventually will no longer
function as well as they once did, especially when it comes to the military's high vehicle standards.
The second reason is also quite simple: technology. Many of these vehicles simply do not have all
the technological advancements today's army vehicles need to have to serve their military
purposes. And this cannot be easily remedied due to the high cost of alterations. Changes such as
physical vehicle modifications, safety modifications, GPS capabilities are much too costly to deal
with, so the military simply purchases new vehicles to eliminate the hassle. The great thing about it
is that their - for lack of a better word - loss is your gain.


The sale of some of the larger and more dangerous items like vehicles and weaponry are not
usually advertised in the local papers. But if you want to buy these, it is a good idea to establish
regular contacts with a couple of military bases (e.g. National Guard) in your area and other
organizations (third-party licensed contractors) that specialize in selling army items that needs to
be liquidated, including scrap metal and recyclables. You might also want to sign up for regular
alerts from government and online merchants so that you can get to sales or auctions that are held
infrequently in certain army bases or camps.


Cheap camping equipment does not have to mean poor quality. Army surplus clothing and
equipment is specified and fabricated to exacting standards to meet the expectations and
demands of military forces worldwide. Often military clothing is designed for use in the world's
harshest environments, has been carefully developed for the needs of modern military forces and
been extensively tested. Military clothing and equipment is therefore a great choice for camping.


For example an army surplus sleeping bag such as a Swiss mummy bag is as light as a
conventional summer weight sleeping bag but as warm as a 13 tog duvet and is less than half the
price of a similar labelled bag bought in a camping store. This is an example of not having to pay
the highest price to get the highest quality equipment.
If you're looking for authentic army surplus gear, you can either go online or check out local stores
that carry military gear. And, if you're interested in the history behind the army & navy surplus
items you buy, spend some time researching where they came from - you might learn some very
entertaining history about where that pair of combat boots or that navy pea coat came from.


Another favourite is the Bergan rucksack. Cheap camping equipment does not get much better
than this. An army surplus Bergan costs less than half the price of a civilian rucksack yet
outperforms most load carrying bags. Bergans are modular so extra load carrying elements such
as side and top pouches can be added to the bag when larger loads need to be carried.
