    Thanks Paul, well the sizes are different but as I said the adding of handgrenade rings
    to zippers is and was a common practice. Wink Yes, got it from the same source. Had to dig me through 10 boxes of K4 stuff. Wink But as I found the snapped button pants and those 2 jacket it was like christmas! santa

    Another KAZ 69 jacket, looks normal at the first sight but its a nice modified piece!

    A zipper from a DAZ 75 heavy jacket was added and also the cuffs have been modified.

    Thanks Sal, its a pretty cool set and well made. I think they only issued a small number of this stuff. Only saw one jacket for sale before.

    You have done VERY well for yourself! I've never seen the desert jacket before. So that is worn over the fleece when it's cold or on its own when it's just a little chilly?

    Thanks Paul and Steve! Wink @S: Yes the heavy jacket can be worn with the lightweight jacket underneath or additional with the fleecejacket.I'm very proud to have found it, I guess I'm the first from the forum who has one.

    @P: To find a matching nametape and the rankinsignia was even harder than finding the jacket! It just looks a lot better when its patched up.

    Some more detailed pics from the alpine pants.
    The zippers can be opened on the full length on both sides.
    The stupid thing is, there are no pockets.

    thanks for the follow up. Yup, I think you are the first and only member of this Forum with one. If someone else has one, they are hiding it Wink

    If you find any more name tapes, please keep me in mind. I have a 3 color desert uniform without a nametape and someday I'll get around to a KAZ03 desert set. Having badging on an otherwise plain uniform is very important.

    Alex,

    Nice detail photos. Lots of early Goretex type trousers had no pockets, or had pass through slits at best.

    Good pick up, Alex...

    Thanks Paul, yes the red cross has a SAN Staffel marking(the light on the pic is too bright thats why its hard to see).That happened often.
    The bread bag is in very good condition, no holes or rips. And the carrying strap was also there.Often
    they are sold seperate.And yes the bread bag is an early one.The stamp is the older variant.
