    I got this Italian reversible snow set sometime last year. I've been after one for a long time and was very pleased that it's in such fantastic condition. You can see it has official military tags in it. Consists of jacket, trousers, hood, pack cover, and bag.

    Have seen Alpini wearing that snow pattern.

    Always thought it was standard German issue, but this is clearly an Italian made uniform..

    Nice catch..

    Thanks! Yup, at first I thought it was just Alpini using some BW issued sets, but I found some close up pics which showed it was definitely not BW. However, until I got my set I wasn't entirely sure if it was commercial production used by Alpini or military issue.
