The Vanguard All Arms Modular Belt Rig (AAMBeR) Mk2 is an improved MOLLE Battle Belt specifically designed to be worn in conjunction with Osprey (& other) Body Armour. The multicam camouflage provides maximum compatibility with UK issue Multi Terrain Pattern (MTP).

Vanguard are a British company who since being established in 1991 have been dedicated to trying to ‘improve the lot’ of the ordinary British soldier doing his job, both on the front line and in support of operations. Vanguard was founded by serving solider who was so frustrated with the issue 349 pouch that he decided to make his own. Since then the company has come a long way and manufactures a wide range of equipment. Vanguard's load carrying products still form the core of their business. These include day-sacks, a full range of pouches, battle vests + complete webbing systems, including the All-Arms load vest & Pegasus belt order webbing. Vanguard also produce and distribute patches, field and survival equipment, including survival tins, pocket and survival knives, model kits and shelters.
The founder and owner of Vanguard regularly contributes to the Army Rumour Service, as In-the-Van, answering questions and offering advice on equipment related issues, for example a clarification of MTP and multicam:
Also from In-the-van is this less official company history:
Wyvern webbing sysyems was started by a guy back in 1991, who at the time was serving with his local TA unit [Wessex]. So hacked off was he with the issue 349 pouch that he designed a chest rig to carry it, along with the usual chest rig features etc etc. Local demand was so high he started making them commercially, giving them the brand name 'Wyvern' after the regimental motif which was about to dissappear at that time.
More products followed and in 1997 the company Vanguard was formed, selling [to the trade, and procurement agents] all sorts of other little thingies that you squaddie type people like, for instance 'cats eyes', pacecounters etc. Vanguard now sell a large range of practical, high quality items from smocks to knives to trade badges to survival and model kits, in addition to the established Wyvern webbing range.
All the webbing products are, as has been pointed out correctly in other posts, manufactured in Great Britain, using only MOD approved components, a statement that WILL stand up to scrutiny. Thier most popular item historically has been the All-arms Load carrying vest, a design that has been copied almost as many times as Elvis Presley's hairstyle!
