    I believe they are generally issued whilst recruits are in training, in the Army they are often know as 'Crap Hats'.

    I heard another C-word used to describe it. But the meaning is similar :-)

    Nice desert smocks! I haven't seen one like the Hooper named one before. And the Greenwood named smock is a nice early private purchase, early to mid 90s at a guess.

    Thanks, I'm still a bit confused by the different variants they made.... Laughing
    The Hooper named one reminds me a bit of the FR or aircrew stuff. Maybe its the early variant....

    Just a quick question.. sorry I know I can Google this. I just wanted the answers straight from fellow collectors.

    Is "Pecoc" a DPM pattern variant like the "Soldier 2000" ?

    Unbelievable, If you want to collect every different version smock ever made, you're never finished!

    There is this thing I don't get, In my imagination a Artic smock should be very thick and padded/insulated, but they are as thin as most windproofs????
    can anyone explain please?

    I had the same thought when I began collecting this stuff! Despite its name, the arctic smock is not meant to be a warm garment. In arctic conditions you would normally wear several layers of warm clothing, and the arctic smock is just another lightweight layer with lots of useful pockets to go over the top for added protection from wind chill. The arctic and SAS smocks are the same thing except that the arctic smock has a rank tab on the chest and a much bigger hood with a wire frame, allowing it to fit over a helmet.

    Thanks Jerry, my British stuff already needs an own wardrobe... Laughing Laughing
    But I just like every piece, even if some smocks look quite similar, or the differences are just minor.
