    Irish wet weather jacket and trousers

    Latest addition but the jacket is oversize so I doubt I'll be keeping this set. I do like to wear the jackets I have and I'm not so sure on having 'Property of Irish defence forces' stamped on my jacket either Laughing

    I recently accuired a set as well, albeit in Large, and it's too cool for school!
    The 'property of'-bit reminds me of the way certain outlaw biker gangs brand their belongings, be it motorcykles or womenfolk Very Happy
    A great piece of quality garment!

    Is that the set that ended on Ebay UK early this week?

    Reason I ask is was tempted to bid but the description was confusing as seller had the jacket listed as a SMALL but apparently it had a 50"" chest Razz Shocked

    The newest version(2010 pattern) is made by Cooneen Watts and stone.It has a centre drawcord. The large tri-colour on the sleeve,the "Defence Forces Ireland" tab on the left chest.
    They are s**te. Plastic bag type outer and the inner line is a very tactical off white Rolling Eyes
    All in all no good.
    I recently acquired one of the original trial waterproof suits.Proper Goretex stuff.Will post pics when i get a chance.pity they were too expensive for general issue. Sad

    It's a great set but the jacket I'm sure is made for a 7ft tall giant Laughing Sadly a short person like me cannot wear it without it drowning in it and looking stupid.
