What are the controlled SAF items that are not sold in eMart?

While most of the SAF items can be bought from eMarts in camp, SAFRA Punggol or The Chevrons (Note: eMart at SAFRA Mount Faber has ceased operations since 1 April 2020), items relating to the iLBV / LBS, helmets, and weapons are controlled items. These are some of the items that need to be requested from your CQ, RQ, unit or formation:

  • Ammo pouch
  • Granade pouch
  • Armour plate pouch
  • Rear pouch (for Goretex)
  • Goretex
  • Goggle

You can get these items from the eMart:

  • iLBV / LBS Rank holder
  • Water bottle pouch
  • Helmet cover

For those items that are not sold in eMarts, we learnt from unverified sources that they could be found at Army Market on Beach Road or at the army related shops in Pasir Ris. We are unsure about the authenticity of this information or if the act of selling these controlled items are legal.
