    Irish Camo

    Post by bravo_2_zero on Thu Apr 16, 2009 12:03 pm

    Ripstop Parker SAS style , ARKTIS design , Genuine issue





    Whats this flap for then ? It's hard and dosn't seem to be foam ?? My best guess it's to sit on for cold wet places. It's not a nappy for para's.

    The whole jacket is pertex lined, pockets are thick nylon lined.

    cost on Arktis's site for this is £175'ish for a non-army issue

    BDU jacket British S95 design




    Light mesh weave, slot buttons same maker as Brit Kit

    BDU trousers



    Thick Ripstop same as Parker. Double lined, slot buttons,elasticated or lace fastning ankles, massive cargo pockets.
    ARKTIS design £95 for these from Arktis non-issue

    I got this bundle for £10 GBP and it's all brand spanking NEW

    I think Bravo_2_Zero should be arrested on charges of theft of the highest degree Very Happy

    The flap for the parka is to park one's butt on when it's wet.

    The uniform comes in smooth weave and ripstop. From what I've been told the soldiers don't care too much about mixing and matching the two styles. Apparently it is common for the smooth top and ripstop trousers to be worn together.

    SEYNTEX is a major Belgian uniform and kit maker. I have a shirt dated 2004 that is the same design, but with a partnership of CARRA/SEYNTEX noted. I don't know anything about CARRA.

    I did buy some new summer trousers but i found the sizing wrong. I wear a 34" waist and i bought a 36" summer pair ( cost £7) and they were labeled as 36" but they were 32" Mad
    I sold them on for £40 Laughing

    I saw someone on e bay selling a Irish camo shirt. So I surfed the net for info and a lot of site said it is against the law to sell and wear the Irish uniform.

    Is that true? but the in the USA.

    Ah, okay.

    What patch is that on the jacket's right shoulder? It looks pretty cool.

    Insignia is Sergeant rank , HQ division shield(as worn by the ARW-special forces) and the Ireland flag shoulder patch.

    Oh, ok. I thought he had stated that earlier in the thread. That'd explain why I was scratching my head trying to find the reference in the thread. Laughing

    And just when you think you got a set, they go change it, the new jacket has zips on the side of the chest pockets facing towards the centre, and "Irish Defence Forces" name tag over the left chest pocket and the Irish overseas Flag patch on left sleeve. I'll post up a picture soon.

    There is also a lighter shorter jacket available.

    The shirt has "Irish Defence Forces" name tag over the left chest pocket and the Irish overseas Flag patch on left sleeve. And is in the same pattern but a slightly different colour. Again pictures to follow.

    The insignia on the shoulder is the DFHQ (Defence Force HQ)flash, which is in Dublin. And would guess it was put on the for look. As no unit or command flashes are worn on DPM shirts or DPM Jackets, only Irish Flag, name tag and on the new shirts and Jackets Defence Forces Ireland.
