    I have the sniper snow camo set and winter webbing somewhere. Looks like I'm missing a piece!

    Metal zipper for the mouth? Oh, no thank you! I don't want my lips frozen to something metal!

    So this was used back in the 1970s/1980s?

    My faith in Italian military designs is restored Smile

    Thanks. Snipers sometimes wear very old stuff, so that doesn't necessarily tell us how old it is. All we know is that this hood was made 1998 or earlier. That is still good information to know.
