    Nice catch, liking the desert one best!
    It's a shame that you need to list things specifically as not for sale.

    Very neat hoard there!

    Was the 'woodland' type, or # 2 picture from the bottom, a full issue vest in N.Z. or was it a special run for missions abroad? It looks rather simply build too.

    Spot on it was a special run in 99 from Israel to supplement the Bristol armour that was left over from Bosnia, As ET was our largest deployment since Malaya forty odd years before we lacked operational modern infantry war fighting kit. This stuff was barely worn and was quickly replaced by the Aussie Combat clothing type at the bottom in 02 for Afghanistan.

    The bottom ones are of similar design to the Osprey vest, very nice!

    The faded DPM one with shoulders and a collar look like the Kestrel vest that was available before the Osprey system went into mass issue.

    It's interesting to see the evolutionary steps that different kit takes.

    Wow that's cool, was it made in DPM after the MTP ones were introduced? I didn't know they were making DPM any more...
