Blub, blub, blub Yeah, that is a bummer, especially if you've 'modified' your LBE. ( so, you've 550'd your pistol belt together to add 2 extra mag pouches, and are preparing to cross a "shallow" ford, 10th step in - the river goes 10' deep and you've got a full load, yes, you become an anchor) maybe we need to add another piece of equipment to the combat soldier's inventory - self inflating BCs built into the body armor or LBE?

Wouldn''t help if you were on fire though, would it?
