    Not 100% sure about the French but sure they would be the same-The British and US NBC suits are Charcoal lined,heavy,horrible,hot things to wear so am guessing these Training trs look the same as regular NBC trs but without the heavy Charcoal lining. Think they were around a fiver when they cropped up on Ebay(may well still be on there),listed from memory as French Breathable Trousers. Pretty sure they were discussed on here somewhere by another member who had bought a pair.

    Sure they will make excellent over trs and as they were dirt cheap,no worries about getting them dirty or damaging them Wink
