Hi all!

I'd like to know the meaning of this sentence:

The crowd descended on him, ripping off his gear.

Thanks!

    "rippin" is a non-standard way of spelling "ripping" - you'll see it sometimes with an apostrophe after the n.

    "la muchedumbre se abalanzó sobre él, arrancándole el <equipo>".

    What his 'gear' is depends on who he is. Is he a frogman, a soldier, a mountaineer, an archaeologist, a drug smuggler....? They all use or carry different types of gear.
