    Have wanted a first pattern set for awhile.

    Today I was rewarded with a set and then some ...











    The above set seems to be older than the shirt below. Have not noticed other 1st patterns with belt loops before..

    The stuff is pretty nice I like the early ones most, but everything is cool.
    A good addition to your great collection I would say.

    The older set is quite a find! I've had a couple of the jackets, but only once found the trousers. And your set is badged too! Sweet.

    Yup, love the older sets that are directly descended from the Soviet days.

    Between you and Steve, you're responsible for depleting the tiny Estonian armed forces of their uniform stocks.

    Managed to repair a mangled 1st type trousers. *

    This allowed me to have a second 1 type set.  The second set is definitely slightly  different from the other set  I have posted above .


                                                                           
                                                                       
                                                                           

                                                                                 Early 1st type

                                                                                  Later 1st type


    Looks like the trousers were made from different batches of material.  The smock  has a few  slight  differences from the earlier  1st types.

     Aside form not  having belt loops,  the elastic gores are a bit different .   Later 1st types also use  Velcro tabs to secure  lower pockets where the earlier pieces have buttons ..

                                                                                  Early 1st type

                                                                                  Later 1st type

                                                                                  Comparison of 3  1st type smocks.

    The early first type is well  faded and almost looks like a desert / beach pattern.  By looking at the  inside of  the pockets , it is clear that ( unfortunately ) it is definitely not.

    Hi Sal,

    I found the same thing with my 1st types. I wrote up the differences somewhere recently, but from memory it's buttons vs. velcro, but also thicker/rough cloth vs. thin/smooth high poly cloth. I can't remember if I noted anything you didn't note.

    Differences in the cloth is evident.

    The earliest set has what seems a thick cotton material while the later ones do have the  semi shiny  look of significant poly content.

    The early set is soft and comfy due to the fact that it was well used ( but not abused ). Repeated washings must have taken the roughness out.

    Yeah, I have an unissued one and either there is a few more variations of cloth or wash/wear takes away the roughness. Not that I'm talking burlap like rough, just a bit more texture to it than either the used ones or the later type.

    Welcome! You'll find that Ripcord and I have a ton of Estonian items in our collections, but never enough Smile

    I just thought of something else about the mystery 2011 desert uniform. At this point the official items have the three lions of the Estonian armed forces on the labels, but this one does not.

I found a local forum about patches, like all 10 Estonian "patch-freaks" were there, showing off their collections.. i got hooked.. Very Happy
    Yeah, i`m interested in 90`s stuff, not only Estonian..

    These  2 sets are part of my latest Estonian acquisitions.

    The winter/foul weather set is  fantastic  gear.  It is basically a digital version of the other Estonian winter/foul weather sets I have posted on this thread.

    While these pieces are not goretex  or equivalent, they are very warm and weather resistant.





                                                                             

                                                                            

                                                                             

                                                                            

                                                                             



    The following are  used by Estonian Home Defense units . I believe each major Estonian city has such units.

    Been looking for one of these for awhile.     The cut of this uniform is similar to BDU type uniforms, so  at first  I assumed it to be an early version of the current Estonian woodland uniform.

    Have since learned that it is indeed used by HD units.  Trousers retain the old soviet stirrup system and also have draw strings.


                                                                             

                                                                            

                                                                            

                                                                            

                                                                            

                                                                            




    Cap in center is used by border guard units of the Estonian army.

    I see your Estonian streak continues! Lucky dog! Mine dried up Sad

    Yup, the wet/winter stuff is fantastic. Some of the best made items I have of its type. Especially since I live in a similar climate and know a thing or two about what one wants to be wearing in January!

    So the old BDU style digital stuff was worn by the Defense League (home defense)? Interesting. Well, I'm not sure it started out that way. These uniforms have military type tags (the three lions, IIRC, didn't appear until later) in them and I thought that Defense League items, the ones purpose made for them anyway, did not back in that timeframe (since then I think that has changed).

    More importantly, there was also a BDU type uniform in desert and that certainly wasn't worn by Defense League, which is why I thought of the temperate one as its companion. There is also a ripstop temperate set, but I've only managed to land the trousers and the label is unreadable IIRC.

    Hopefully one of our friendly Estonians will stop by and help us out Wink
