    The Snugpak looks good. DPDU material is very tightly controlled by the govt. Plat-a-tac initially had to come up with their own version of DPDU (similar to 2nd patt) in order to sell their garments. I don't know whether their Series II smocks are still made in this 'commercial' DPDU.

    I have no doubt that some of these would have made their way overseas initially as private purchase items , but now it seems that the ADF Quartermaster system has caught up and developed its own line of effective cold weather gear.

    I have the smock and the material is thin. Is it waterproof? No, it's water resistant at best and water would eventually seep in. In my opinion if Plat offers this jacket at less than $100 then I'd say I'd have a go.

    thanks for your comment , ye , believe in you , wait for more discount. Does it have NSN on tag ? cause i saw many SF wear that in 2002-3 , thinking was that issued by ADF.

    No NSN number on tag. When this jacket first came out it was the "only" jacket in DPDU colors so I guess the soldiers got it.

    I'll post the pics of my jacket tomorrow.
