    Hello to all.
    This is my first posting here. An Englishman in the Netherlands collecting "Cold War" gear, and as usual that collecting bug moves into other eras. I am now moving out of my comfort zone into Dutch M93 Ops-vests and the newer Molle type vests plus pouches/tasjes, collecting these when available.
    First question is... There is a belt for the M93 vest, is there one for the Molle vest? Next...There is a "Holy Grail" of M93 vests from KLU. How often do these occur and were pouches/tasjes made in green for these? The 35 litre pack that has the round bag attached, I have this in desert and woodland, was this available in KLU green?
    Enough questions for now. I will try to upload pics later of the items in question.
    Your advice would be really helpful.
    Thanks in advance.

    I think that the rucksack exists in KLU green. I do not know how many other parts from M93 were made in green but such pieces are quite uncommon in my experience.

    Something to keep my eyes open for then. Also i noticed that the green Molle vests do not have an internal pistol holster. As for the belts, i now have 3 different sorts, 1 i know is from the so called M93 vest, the other 2 are Dutch but no maklings and different from the first/each other. Cold war collecting was simple, this DPM, as i call it, gear gets really complicated and varied very quickly, sometimes due to lack of markings, other times due to lack of my knowledge.
