    Steve -- No rank traces present, but there is a ghost of the Australian Army patch on the left shoulder, and of a nametape over the right pocket.

    And I agree, prices are insane, even commercial repros of Land125 are bad. I'd love a set of the red OPFOR cams, but they are way out of my budget. Evil or Very Mad

    Thanks for the link. Interestingly enough, I searched through the pockets and found an Army patch, and a nametape: "Eatough". I'm unsure if the nametape was the original that was sewn on or not, though.

    once in a while you can see a bloke serving overseas using this version, so even if is obsolete, its not ALL that obsolete... Very Happy

    Wearing it for extra cool points, maybe -- you know, that retro-chic type of thing? Cool

    As to my knowledge, if it's obsolete it's okay for release onto the surplus market. The current-issue stuff is what's restricted -- but I think the real problem would probably be with the seller of the items (if they are an Australian) because they are aware of the laws regarding the sale of military gear, whereas an international buyer may not be.

    I'll just wait until the Aussies go to MultiCam to get my Land125s. Laughing

    hahaha, it might be that! or maybe some diggers just cant be bothered!

    some RAAF ground crew units are still issued this version- i saw many RAAF ground crew still wearing them in the RAAF Airbase in Butterworth, so technically, it might still be an issued item!

    In a strict sense, anything that has the 'broad arrow' symbol belongs to the government, and is illegal for anyone outside of the military to own it, even for civvys like me. While body armour , helmets, weapons, nvg kits are heavily controlled, shirts and trousers and sometime webbing are not really controlled, my guess is how much can terrorist do with a pouch or a hat
