    I have just acquired these pants and I am puzzled by them.

    They appear to be M65?  Olive pants, but they are unlike any other M65 Pants I have seen.

    The material is "glossy" and does not seem to be Cotton, or natural fibre.

    When placed against other pants I have there is a clear difference,  These pants, (top), are glossy or shiney, other pants I have (bottom) are a different colour and matt in appearance

    The lower matt pants are by Seyntex.

    The glossy pants are by Bergetex.

    The Bergetex pants are clearly marked with instructions "Do Not Dry Clean"

    Are they coated in some way that would be adversely affected by dry cleaning?  Ie have they got some form of waterproofing for example?

    Does PVBA have any significance or stand for anything special?

    Thanks in advance Mike.

    I understand PVBA after a company name denotes the way the comapny is registered and is similar to Ltd after a British company name? ie the Company has limited liabilities? Can anyone elaborate on exactly what PVBA stands for (just out of interest) Thanks.

    Hello Mike,

    The fibrecontent must be specified on the label, and I assume it's 100% cotton.
    Back in time when we got our first battle dress issued (the last uni olive green uniform in the dutch army), they had the same finish, and that dulled the more it was laundered.

    Did the Belgian army had M-65 trousers?

    It is the do not dry cle4an label I do not understand? If pure cotton why can you not dry clean?

    I have always seen this style described as M65.

    I don't know? if it's a wind and weather resistant trousers, (in those days for when the weather went real bad.) it might be there is a rainrepellent coating on it? or maybe a IRR coating?
