    I was in Brussels a few weeks ago and could not track down any sort of surplus store or market. I wish I had now!

    Cool stuff! I really like the modified desert jacket. Also, know that desert nametapes are pretty much impossible to get. Good find on that one!

    The uniform without the white is something I'm not quite sure about. At first I was told that it was going to be standard issue soon after its 2012 introduction. Then I was told it was for hot weather climates only. I've not paid attention to this for years so I'm not sure where it wound up. It did seem like general issue at first as it went to cadets and some reservists according to pictures. There's also a field jacket in the same cut as the standard type, but no white.

    Thanks guys. Yes I was pretty lucky with finding this stuff. The desert set with name tape is of course my favourite. Its cool that the ripstop and the desert set came from the same soldier.
    The lightweight uniform seems to be ment for hot-weather climates/summer. Its very thin but comfy to wear. But I fear it wouldn't last long in field use...
