    This is a set used in first instance by para, even probably used in other units (Spanish marines). The dark variation has cords to mantain equipment in jump and this one has no one.

    Steve, Ripcord, you know more than me of this models, so ...go on please. This set mantains a very mind condition trousers with belt, difficult to find and its hood aswell.

    I missed this post until today! I'm slow, but usually not this slow Smile

    This is the M58 set, which is the first camouflage uniform worn by Spanish forces. The brown version is M61. It is complete with hood and belt for the trousers! Definitely a very nice set! It is certainly hard to find and to find in good condition.

    There were two later designs. The second type is made from the later "mint" green cloth and has olive green plastic chest zippers. The third type is a close cousin to the French TAP 47/56 design. I am pretty sure the third type was for parade/ceremonial positions, the second type might have been as well.
