    Repro german winter coat/pants or what?

    I took this photo at surplus store. It is in german WW2 pattern and looks much like ones they worn in WW2. But it was known that this camo pattern and style of revisable coat/pants were adopted by some European military. So is it repro or post-war? It has "made in poland" tag.

    If you ask me, the price for it is crazy, $80 for pants, another $80 for coat.

    Repos I would guess ,would need to see better pics , they look way too new to be a post war issue piece , and they do not use anything like this post 1960's that I know of .

    Yup, super common on eBay these days as Chinese factories are cranking out reproductions as fast as they can. The price is high, but when postage is factored in (at least $30) it's not too bad. Plus, there are some repros out there that are complete crud. At least you get to inspect this first hand, make sure it fits, etc.
