    Hi Guys.

    Here's another set of Combat trousers I picked up recently.

    I got these on-line,so was'nt completely sure what they were really,but thought I would take a gamble on them.

    Great-looking pattern! My guess was going to be that all those adjustment buttons were an MoD cost-saving attempt at a "one size fits all" combat clothing! Laughing

    Laughing Your probably right there Ben, I washed these this afternoon....Man,when these are wet they weigh a flippin' tonne..I would not want o fall in a river with these things on..they would drag you to the bottom,never to be seen again.

    I feel sorry for the poor kids who had to wear these things, and not only that,theres only one map pocket,MOD skinflints... Laughing

    Maybe they're designed to be miserable when wet to separate the men from the boys when it comes to their desire to join the forces -- you know... the "Being wet is miserable " or "I like the way its miserable, bring on more!" separation Laughing

    They are neat trousers, all the same!
