    They look good to me, Steve. An X-Large set WILL set you back some serious cash. I have seen them go as high as $150 for an XL set on Ebay.

    He wants a lot more then $150 , and the set is dead mint , also small and med size have been going for big bucks these days even used , Large and XL are impossible to find , he wants $285 shipped , and thats a bit high for me , but I think finding another set in this size that are original is only going to be harder as time goes by , the damn boonie hats in XS are going for $25 , ERDL has gone nuts for some reason , I am really on the fence with this one , not only is it not my real area of collecting , but man its a lot of scratch ...........

    Well I bought the set , the boonie is 7 1/8 so its a decent size , and XL size is going to go up in value the longer I own them , yes I spent too much , but on the plus side , I am getting what I have been looking for for a long time , and my mother in law is going to cover $100 of the price , and I looked up prices both on Ebay and through the net , even Large Regular pants in mint condition go for around $85-$115 for the pants , Jackets not so much , anyway I am going to be happy to have the set , Thanks for all the advice gents !!

    BTW , the final price was $280 shipped , with a 3 day inspection period , yes he offered a refund if not satisfied , as you guys know , one collectors mint is anothers "issued" , I bought a uni off of ebay once that was claimed "NEW Never Worn " , they forgot to look at the butt that was filled with dust and dirt ground in , not to mention the Knee's LOL , I got a good deal so I kept the uni .

    Nice set! But for $280, O.o I could get tiger stripe shirt for that price, but however, XL is rare. Hope you're happy with it.

    It's not cheap but I think it's still a fair price.

    The bidding on ERDL stuff seems to be generally pretty high even for the common stuff these days. And most of the stuff I see is pretty well used. I've saw some trousers in mint condition go for pretty close to $100 very recently. I don't remember what the size was.
