    Nice jacket. i just sold one to the US on ebay. Size 6 and early DPM camo like yours. They are a well designed jacket and the suits were a favourite of UKSF back i the day.

    Thanks Dave, totally agree these are probably on of the better designed Jackets the MoD came up with. Wink

    Nice!! I just picked up a more modern version, but not sure of the date. Looks to be post 1995, but in most respects similar to the one above. I might as well post the pic here so we can compare the different models.

    I've been collecting since i was 7 Tommo. I've always had a good sized but varied and mostly ever-changing collection.

    Since I moved back from the French Alps in 2006 and no longer get to hike and climb much, I decided to get my motorbike licence and have sold the collection off to fund that addiction.

    I've also found that good items are much harder to find now and cost a lot more than I was used to paying so the thrill of the search paled for me. I am of limited funds and time.

    I have some '60 & '68 pattern stuff as well as stuff from my time in green back in the early 80's as well as some WW2 windproofs and a very rare olive green '63 pattern SAS windproof still to clear out. Some 1959 Denisons. Probably other stuff too !

    The only things I would like to get are a splittertarn 1956 jacket and a DPM '63 pattern smock. I've had several of both but would like to get hold of a set of each as keepers now.

    Cheers,
    Dave
