    Hi all,

    I recently bought this Swedish uniform from a shop in Finland. It is unissued and exactly what they said it is... genuine! The Swedish labels have been removed and a commercial size tag added. The Swedish flag and deployment patch have also been removed. Other than that, absolutely perfect condition.

    Does anybody have any deployment badges? I have one but it is used condition and currently on another jacket.

    Excellent! I can trade or buy, whatever works best for you. I have some flags on the way to me now, so I think I'm OK there.

    I found loads of flags, one of the SWEDEN patches with three crowns that you put under the flag.
    That's the insignia for the international Forces (utlandsstyrkan).

    When it comes to the other arm and mission patches. The 90T was used in Liberia and in Kongo (field hospital staff and SWE SF). In Liberia they used the round and blue UN patch.
    The only mission patch that I have left, except for my own, is the old KFOR shield.

    I also have a rank insignia, PFC with at least 3yrs of service.

    All of the patches are mint!

    PM me your email and I'll send pics!

    Recently got one of the surplus  M90s that have flooded the market..
    Was told it is called an M90L, as in lightweight , but it is definitely not  a lightweight ..
    Just not as heavy as M90Fs .  

    Expected a ripstop type uniform, but it is definitely not.  Still a very desirable set, even with commercial tags and the lack of national flag and deployment patch.

    Have taken the liberty to partially  patch it ; a naked uniform is just not as attractive as a patched uniform.

    Yup, these uniforms are all over the place now. Cheap, too. A reminder that sometimes items in our collection go up in value, sometimes down. I know I'm glad I didn't pay $400 for a DDR Strichtarn uniform or $550 for a Swiss Alpenflage like some guys did!

    Sal,

    This is the M90L and it is "light weight" according to Swedish thinking. The cloth is 65/35 instead of the standard 50/50. I agree that it's not significantly lighter than the standard version. There are no ripstop uniforms in temperate colors.

    Both the 2nd and 3rd Models are available for sale now, but not the ultra small run 1st Model (which is nearly identical to the standard M90). Only significant difference between 2nd and 3rd Models is the 3rd uses velcro instead of buttons.

    BTW, I just noticed that I called this the M90T in the subject line. Doh!

    I have a lightweight shirt which really is lightweight. It is made of material which is about half the weight of the current examples, which I have and hence was able to compare. I suspect that the cut is the same as the original lightweight but it proved popular so it may now be used as a garrison type jacket in Sweden?

    I haven't compared the m90 and m90L side by side, but I believe you when you say the weight is different. When mine arrived I thought they weren't significantly lighter than the regular m90 stuff. I'll have to dig mine out of a box and check it out for myself because now I'm curious!

    The one on the hem holds a little hook which engages with the boot lacing to stop the pants from rising up when the knee is bent.
