    I just received a desert Splinter Goretex set from Taiga. I'm curious to know if soldiers used these sets at all or in any significant quantity.

    Thanks!

    Yes, M90K is the one I'm most interested to know about as I have a set. Thanks for the info. I was hoping for that.

    The identical? set is made in standard M90 Swedish Splinter. I've seen Airsoft guys boasting about having sets. It seems that they were for sale for a time if you had deep pockets. My guess is the M90K desert was not.

    Here are some quick pics of my set. Taiga is a Swedish company but the products are made in Poland.

    Thanks. I don't deliberately collect winter and wet weather kit any more, but when it's Swedish... how could I possibly say no? Smile
