If it's like one of the above that seller is higher than a kite Smile If it's for a smock, then the price is within reason. Expensive, but not crazy out there expensive.

    Steve

    A smock here in NZ brand new is about 350$ NZD a DPM shirt is about 140-150 NZD. Like most other countries it is illegal for soldiers to sell or trade their kit. But most will trde with other nations on ops:)

    Also just noticed that the NZSAS flash on that shirt has been modified to look like a ranger Tab. Definately not an issue item.

    heh... yup, that's been my experience *except* for Diesel items. In 2008 (when the market was stronger) I sold a used one for $42. The problem is most collectors have no idea how difficult these are to find, therefore the premium price is not very high.

    The primary problem with Kiwi uniforms, from a price standpoint, is they are DPM. For many, many collectors DPM is "boring". It's like US Woodland or US 3 Color Desert. They don't care if it is a uniform off the back of an elite 5 man body guard team, that only works every 3rd Saturday, for King Saud himself, if it's in US 3 Color then it's not interesting to most. There are few collectors, like myself, that are more interested in collecting everything under the sun. We're a strange breed, we are Very Happy

    First time I've seen that one! Well done. The tags in the neck don't look like smaller than what's on other kit. Any differences in information on it?

    The tag you can see just has a red M for medium on it. As its one that I have worn for work I cant remember if there was an addtional tag under it. I have checked the inside of it and there werent any others. Onward288 may be able to update us as hes got a NIB one.

    Yes they have both the small size tag and the Man label, im pretty sure the first of the new shirts had the same tag. There was complaint by Suppies that the old tag became unreadable and was hard to reissue as part worn serviceable so that was probably why this was introduced but my worn shirts both tags are blank now.

    The 2012 ripstop, velcro shirt that I have has gone back to a larger white label with all the data on it and the Red size labels are gone.

    My old ripstops have the 2 labels as well, both faded out from wear.

    Just found a couple pairs of diesel trou in the garage and noticed that one of the pairs was made by ADI in 94, are these a trial of some sort?

    The other pair is the standard tracey tags dated 95.
