    Very hard to get 1st Model desert (vz95)! I've always wondered exactly how long they produced the smooth cotton model before moving to ripstop. So it is at least 2005. Good info to know.

    Ooh!  You got one with the arm pockets.  That's been on my wish list for some time now.  I have the vz85, vz95 1st Model (solid cloth), and vz95 2nd Model (same as 1st but in ripstop).  The vz95 3rd Model, which you have, is not easily found IMHO.  If it is, then maybe I need to have a chat with my local sources Very Happy

    From what I can tell, the 3rd Model is at least as early as 2007. Complicating matters is there are modified 2nd Model jackets in at least three forms:

    1. Lower pockets removed and put on sleeves
    2. Modest sized rectangles of velcro added that kinda look like they might be pockets
    3. HUGE rectangles of velcro added

    I've got quite a few pictures of each of these and there could be more types than this.

    Thanks Alex,

    Typical great Czech quality garment.

    A bit too much velcro for my taste, but it is made super well  with usual attention to details..

    Should  be fun finding matching trousers..

    Steve, thanks for the info about  the 2 types of VZ95.

    I believe mine is designated either VZ 2000 or M 2000 > I thought it was the first ripstop type.

    Both ripstop types are vz95. Look at your label in the above picture Wink

    The tag says:

    "jacket (vz.) 95, summer with tan print - R"

    I don´t know what the "R" means. Also I saw similar jacket from another manufacturer and the tag said "jacket (vz.) 95, summer with tan print modernized - R"

    Hello T..

    Maybe it just means ripstop..

    There is an R on tag on desert shorts, as well.

    I can confirm a -R on my ripstop set without pockets on sleeves. Thibir, could R stand for Ripstop? It sure would make sense if it did Wink
