    Picked these up the other day, hadn't seen them before but knew of them, didn't realise they had an interesting closure.

    The belt looks quite classic, reminds me a bit on old Austrian KAZ 57/59 pants stuff.

    I hadn't seen it before, but it was used on the old DPM version too.

    BTW: Whats the difference compared to those windproof trousers?

    Are the upper ones more lightweight?

    These are not over trousers but windproof combat trousers for UKSF. Just my size too, so if you want to sell them, I'm very interested.....
