    Okay, better send it back! Very Happy

    But seriously though, that is a great find. This is not a common vest.

    Are all vests in this pattern rare?

    I would say they are uncommon/scarce. These don't often turn up for sale at shows in Canada, and I don't see them for less than $200 or $300. It is perhaps not surprising, as they were in service for a relatively short period, and production numbers may not have been very high. I have had more luck finding Canadian-issued M69 vests (ie, US models in Canadian service) than this Canadian-manufactured pattern.

    Interesting. They are relatively common in the US.
