    Jacket Aircrew Combat Temperate MK 2- NOS.

    Post by Easy Gee on Sat Feb 19, 2011 9:07 am

    Hi Guy's.

    I picked up this one recently.I believe this Jacket is pretty much un-issued that or it was worn very little. Wink

    I 've not seen to many of these around ( apart from ebay of course) so I am hoping it my be of interest on this forum. Smile

    To my knowledge these jackets were worn by chopper pilots. And were worn with specific Aircrew Trousers ( which I am on the look out for !!)

    Here it is.........

    Very nice!! And it's cool to see the 1986 date. I've got a set of this myself. The trousers have a lot of interesting features. I'll try to take some pics tonight.

    Likewise - one of my favourite DPM suits. Pretty rare to come across (at least in my part of the world). I'm partial to the early DPM with its lighter colouration.

    Thanks filupe.

    I don't think that they are too common over here,so I'm chuffed to get such a minty one....like you I'm keen on the early DPM pattern/Colouring too.

    Cheers Mate Wink

    Hi Gary,

    I have just found this thread, and thanks to it I can positivly identify my aircrew jacket!! I thought it was aircrew, but as the label is missing I couldnt be sure. One slight problem with my jacket though, it doesnt fit me! Fits the Mrs though!
