    French Marines uniform

    Post by drmatz on Tue May 08, 2012 3:21 pm

    Hi guys,

    Im working on a trade for this uniform...
    It's said to be current french marines, but i never seeing this cut before and i know very little about the new french CE uniforms.

    im about to complete a trade, but would like to know if they are rare, as the person claims (or at least hard to find) so i don't go offering more items than i should Smile

    thanks a lot

    French military supplier for the label, pity there is no date
    Who have used that, I don't know, maybe the 13e régiment de dragons parachutistes or other paratrooper unit
    I think it is not the commando marines

    We have a French Marine contingent from New Caledonia here at AASAM 2012 and although I have observed a number of differing uniform variations, I have not seen the smock you pictured. The pants, however, look like some of the ones I have seen here (once again, some variations observed).

    The CE uniforms I have seen here seem to be made of a water repellent rip-stop material with the back of the shirt gussetted and covering a mesh back, providing excellent ventilation. I suspect it's a new cut designed specifically for the tropics. Perhaps your contact can provide more information on this ...

    Hi guys, thanks for the help.
    So if this is official issued and nobody has seeing this cut before, i guess i can assume they are at least hard to find... so i decided to accept the trade, once i receive the set i can take better pics and look for dates and other tags...

    Thanks again for the help
    cheers

    Sorry can't help with a positive ID, but if it were me I would go all out and get it, I am a big fan of French kit, I hope you can get some confirmation from the seller Wink
