    Hi Guys,
    Picked these up but not sure what they are. I am guessing Portuguese ??
    The trousers look to be issue but i think the all in one is commercial ???

    Portuguese for sure. The coveralls are probably legit issue too, though I suppose it is possible they are commercial. Generally camouflage coveralls aren't big sellers in the commercial market so there's little incentive for making them. But that's just a guideline, not a rule Wink

    Coveralls look to have some sort of tag. A close-up of that may further help identify it as being either issue or commercial. I'd also lean toward it being an issue item, although with the dropping of this pattern it could be that material is being used to make all manner of items. Hopefully some of our portuguese members can shed further light on this matter ...

    Pants are legit Portuguese m/963 standard infantry issue, but the coverall is interesting. First I've seen. Check out the tag!

    I have coveralls somewhere, but I am not sure if it is the same design or not. Given the popularity of coveralls for AFV and aircraft personnel world wide, that would be my guess.
