Low grade, cheap, horrible knock offs of decent gear, just like Tactical Force Boots.

The Webtex catalogue is growing faster than the population of China (well, or what used to be). As they now include knock offs of Arktis vests, issue kit, Berghaus Munro daysacks and even Lowa boots.

Webtex stuff is non-NATO spec, and thus non-IRR - which means that whilst you think you're ally as fcuk, you are, in fact, going to shine like a Ukrainian fireman when either Johnny Afghan picks you up on his night sight, or (worse) the USAF's in town.

All in all, unless you want to look like a cadet mong, or just a tit in general when you discover that your webbing fell off when you jumped off the Four Tonner, stay well clear, and stick to PLCE.

Oh, one small thing to add, the notebook covers aren't too shabby, but that's actually the only thing that is reasonable to buy (allegedly).
