    "SAS" smock

    Post by Bury_Dave on Sat Apr 21, 2012 4:56 pm

    Here's a hardly used 1990's gaberdine smock, windproof. For some reason the hood and bottom hem drawcords have been removed. There is also a small compass pouch on the chest made from S95 material. Also has the obligatory green sniper tape over teh buttons. Partly to remove the shine and also to protect the thread.

    It is the same age as some trousers i have and photos of which i will post tomorrow.

    Nor was I until this smock showed up !

    It came directly from Hereford and they don't need to buy their smocks. Yet......

    Couldn't agree more - its' crass beyond belief !

    However, using said smock on ops and getting caught behind the lines is often enough of a giveaway as to who said soldiers belong to ! Smile

    You might argue that getting caught with loads of Gucci gear all screaming SAS on it might lead captors to assume you are an airsift Walt and have gotten lost from your role play location and let you go on your way again ! Laughing

    A 15-second internet search turned this up .........

    http://wikileaks.org/wiki/NATO_Stock_Number


    In answer to Andy's question ....

    NSN's run from 8415-99-132-3951 NATO Size 5060/8590 to fit height 150 - 160cm and chest 82 - 88cm (the old Size 01) through to NSN 8415-99-132-3963 NATO Size 8090/1520 to fit height 180 - 190cm and chest 114 to 120cm (the old Size 9). There is an additional "Special" size listed with NSN 8415-99-132-3964......this suggests a size range from "04" through to "9" (plus "special")......."

    That's the best i can do for now. Smile

    Edited to add:
    Here's an NSN part finder site.
    http://www.nsn-now.com/Indexing/PublicSearch.aspx?QString=8415-99-132-3964
    alas, it says you have a poncho so it can't be all perfect !
    When i try the NSN for my smock above, it doesn't give me an answer ! Maybe because of the 'secret squirrel' nature of the kit ? Wink

    In JSP 586 Operationa; Clothing Catalogue NSN CAS 8415 99 132 3951 - 3964 is "PONCHO ,COMBAT.Woodland DPM.SAS only ,but Description is "Smock Combat SAS .Woodland Disruptive Pattern Marked.Cotton ,with Additional Information:"Not for general issue".

    Incidentially, the Special Measures size cost twice as much as the other 13 sizes.

    There was something on EBAY a couple of years ago about some guy selling fake smocks on there.

    He did green ones and black ones which apparently were never issued.

    Claimed they were 1970 0r 1980 issue but they had taped buttons.

    And if I recall correctly the nsn on the green one came back to a dpm poncho too !

    Indeed. That's why I always write "SAS". If even the Navy are getting them issued, they can hardly be "special" now , can they ? Wink

    How come you got them issued Fez ? NP148 ?

    Maybe but sadly appear to lack the sense of humour of the Army Rolling Eyes Did you not see the Wink in my post ?

    My point was more that I don't call them "SAS" windies. They are issued to pretty much all SF wich includes SAS, SBS, BTY148 FPGRM. Or at least were. I left in 1986 Shocked I gather from some mates that SAS & Shakey Boat generally wear very different dress these days Cool
