    I was recently told that the German Government were ceasing the sale of surplus military clothing and burning or recycling instead , can any one confirm this.

    Canada has been shredding surplus CADPAT for two decades. I am not sure what this has achieved other than creating a demand for reproduction CADPAT clothing and an underground ecomony for original items. We live in a throw-away society that is reflected in the government supply-chain where it is somehow now deemed more efficient to destroy still functional garments and equipment rather than selling them.

    Thats already going on since 2017, surplus clothing and camo gear wont be sold off as in the past and will get destroyed. So its now already difficult to get Flecktarn trousers or parkas in large sizes. The times of cheap german flecktarn surplus will be over soon.

    I had been buying bits of German camo every now and then but I think it's time to get it done , as in time very torn and very faded camo will cost a fortune .

    Definitely, I also stocked up trousers in my size 2 years ago. As I said, good conditioned ones in larger sizes are getting more and more expensive and hard to find.
