    Actually wanted to find a true KAZ59 type, but still, quite happy with it!

    There's more of them circulating the last few years than ever before, but they are still very hard to find. Especially in good condition.

    Best I can figure is they were introduced along with what I call the M57/59 Transitional jacket. The dates line up and the odd reverse snaps are also consistent between the two.

    There does appear to be a M57 Infantrie trouser out there, however I've never seen one. There's lots of pictures of soldiers wearing M57 Infantrie parkas with camouflage trousers, but often in the same picture are soldiers wearing M57/59 parkas. So it's not possible to say what the trousers are.

    I have a single photo showing trousers with the snaps in the normal orientation, which is consistent with M57. That's it. And there is a definite M57 Panzer trouser that exists, so it is possible even this one picture is not evidence of M57 Infantrie trousers.
