Over the past few years Supply Drop has been offering new recruits, to the RAF and Royal Navy, basic initial training packages that contain many of the items needed when they arrive at RAF Halton or HMS Raleigh. These British Forces Initial Training Products have been extremely popular for the following reasons:

  • They are made up of high quality, household name items
  • The packages are available at highly discounted items compared to Amazon
  • They save the new recruits a lot of time by not having to buy them individually
  • They get delivered in a few days. This is especially important during Covid-19 when training courses are being brought forward at short notice

However, not all new RAF or Royal Navy recruits need all the British Forces Initial Training Products in the complete packages as they may be in possession of some of them already.

To allow the new recruits to take advantage of the points listed above, Supply Drop are now selling many of the items individually. This allows the new recruits to build custom-made packages containing the items that that still need to be prepared for basic training.

Additional Items Not In The British Forces Initial Training Products Packages

Supply drop have now introduced some items that are now available in the packages. One such example is the BFM 100oz Mil Spec Crux which includes an adjustable Futura™ harness for a custom like fit. With over 47L of cargo and a 3L, 100oz Mil Spec Reservoir that provides 25% more water per sip, the new BFM is perfect for extended missions. The new Futura harness, which adjusts for individual torso length and plate carrier configurations, stays comfortable on even the longest of operations.
