    No idea at all about this other than pretty sure its French issue.

    Unfortunately all of the drawcords and toggles are not originals Sad

    Thanks Didier,not that its crucial but would it be possible please for you to post a pic of what the correct cords(and toggles if used)should look like to see if I can replace the ones on my smock.

    Thanks

    French Hooded Olive Mountain Troops Smock

    Post by ripcord on Mon Apr 22, 2013 9:05 pm

    Hey Gulf

    I have a French Mountain Anorak/Smock
    The label has the following info: Pauwels Paris,4-61
    Have a few crappy photos, but I think they are clear enough to show the 3 cords that are original to the piece.


    Hope this helps. rip...

    Hey G,

    You are very welcome.

    Did you check the left pocket of your smock for a label ?

    I have to check the inside of mine for markings that I have not looked for as of yet. Suspect

    Hello G 91

    I have checked for markings similar to the ink stampings on your smock but found none.
    There is a label at the nape of the smock similar to yours that has the following info: 96-100 with a C under the numbers.

    I am curious to know if your smock has a label in the left pocket. Suspect




    Thanks, rip...

    Hello all,

    Great posting of an obscure series of French windprrofs, teysseire 1972, also good photos of the windproofs in use.

    Does anyone know which trousers would be correct to match this series of windproofs ????

    Thanks all around....rip...

    Hello t '72,

    Wow, this is getting more and more interesting.

    Nice collection of Olive pieces. Love the Argentine versions, and the trousers are awesome.
    The reversible capabilities of these great garments make them even more awesome and versatile.
    Very nice. Thanks for posting..

    The French reenactor photo is very cool; the Lizard trousers look great with the Olive smock.
