    Peculiar HBT

    Post by sh4pak on Fri Sep 22, 2017 1:55 pm

    --I found this ages ago, and had almost forgotten about it...

    It's an ugly little thing, made of heavyweight HBT. The front closure buttons remind me of the cheap variety used on the French Canvas M43 Uniform Clone: thin. The button on the pocket is more like the ones used by the Swiss.

    No idea what the camo might be called, where it's from, or anything. What I do know is that it *feels* military, if that makes any sense.

    The camo pattern looks most similar to Afghanistan Northern Alliance, but definitely is not.

    The three pocket configuration is usually associated with commercial hunting jackets. That would be my guess for this one.

    Thank you, Sir.

    Given the condition, I'm in agreement-- it has been worn to paint, more than once, and in MD, people always seem to use their hunting clothes to paint.

    I didn't get a shot fo the tag-- it looks like Euro. Mil., also-- but that's not meaningful, as almost all Euro. tags look military.

    Thanks for the reply!
