    The thing is cool, but not very practible.
    Should have had it's own pouch. Snagging foliage and vines is never a good idea..

    It's just too complicated as a design; that's why it it now Kaput !!

    Better Austrian canteens followed this type, thankfully.
    Have a couple of the newer ones that  I use mainly for hiking and camping ..
    I like metal canteens..

    I hadn't realized that the Austrians had used this complicated pattern. Are they very scarce to find? I have the German and South African versions.

    Sorry - I just realized I had posted this before...

    I found a nice pic of this canteen in use during the Prague Spring when Austrian army was on alert.

    Found a nice Austrian post war made tanker holster for the Colt 1911, or as we called it P11.

    Nice! This is a great addition to anybody, like you Wink, who has otherwise complete tanker uniforms. Now you just need a M1911 Wink

    I have one of these as well. Years ago an Austrian eBay seller had a bunch of them in one auction. 6 or maybe 9!! I bid and was outbid at the last second. I asked the seller if he could put me in touch with the buyer. I wound up with one for a reasonable price.

    Is there an easy way to tell the difference between the holster for the M1911 and the P-1 (aka P-38)?

    Honestly I never saw a tanker holster for the P-38. The standard P-38 holster
    looked different than the WWII one. The 1911 holster lookd pretty much like the US type one.

    OK, so then there probably is no holster for the P-1.  I simply assumed there was.  Heh... now I have to get a M1911 to complete my display Wink

    KAZ 03 combat vest with waistbelt. Austrian military was so smart to issue a non-Molle combatible vest in 2003....









    Just the vest:

    Found this very interesting Austrian DAZ/KAZ75 webbing(like nylonish...) fieldbelt, looks like a trial piece before they switched to the well known fieldbelt with the Glock-clips.
    I must say I never saw one before.

    Nice. I agree this must have been either a trials belt or something designed for a very specific (limited) purpose.

    My guess is these belts are very uncomfortable to wear. Which might explain why they are not in production now Wink

    Great to see!!  Which means all you have to do now is get one jacket for yourself and about 50 sets for all your friends (both the ones you know you have and the ones you didn't know you had before now) Wink

    It's good to see a 2016 production date. I was afraid the batch seen in 2015 might have been a "one off".

    Haha, it will be difficult enought to find a matching blouse so I guess more than a wonder would have to happen to get at least more than 1 set. But you can try to send a wish to santa. Laughing
