    Thanks Rich, I've quite a few of the later S95 rip stop versions myself, I prefer the look of these though, even though the S95's are probably much more hard wearing/combat-proof!!

    One of these day's I will get around to posting all my Desert Smocks/jackets Wink

    These were all over eBay 6 years or so for no money as everyone wanted nylon ripstop types. I think I paid £5 for one sealed in a bag.

    Typical I hate the Ripstop type and struggled to find this one in a wearable size. Sad

    Hi Rich very nice mate,your's has fading to it which I prefer over newly issued looking kit.

    These are not so cheap any more, which is a pity as they are a very nice garment, and underestimated in my opinion Wink
