    These are for armored vehicles and tank personnel ...
    IIRC, zipper on the back accesses interior webbing that facilitates extraction of incapancitaded crewmen.

    They are very well made ...Of course I have a couple.. Very Happy

    Yup, Rip's spot on.

    There's only one variant of the coveralls themselves that I'm aware of, but it does come in a variety of different camouflage printings.  This variant is the type I've dubbed "Large Dots", which is the normal type for 1992.

    Having just cleared my driveway from the latest snow storm, I can assure you that the Bundeswehr Flecktarn tanker coveralls and winter liners work great on tractors as well as tanks Wink I just hope I never have a need for the recovery handle to be used. That would be bad!
