    VERY nice! And with badging too. Wow.

    I bought a used one of these NFM coats back in 2017. Is it still in use or is your example from that time period?

    Thanks Steve,

    There is a new field jacket being issued now and these will be phased out.
    As you know , they are incredibly well made, and probably very expensive to manufacture.

    This one has probably been sitting around awhile in some supply room. It's an XXL.

    Brand new XXL or XXS does hint at something on the shelf for a while!

    Not only is this item very well made, but it is also fire resistant as well.  Definitely a quality piece.  NFM had the same coats in Coyote Brown, Black, and Woodland for sale on their website at the time I got mine (2017).  I curse not noting how much they were selling for!  I do recall it being several hundred USD.  I did keep a sales PDF and this picture:

    LUX Smock_10

    If you ever find any LUX badging to spare, please let me know.  I'm also looking for an FR ripstop 4 pocket jacket. I have 1 or 2 FR ripstop trousers, one of which is temporarily paired with the NFM coat.

    Very nice piece. The NFM cut looks familiar too:

    Yes, that is definitely NFM's coat. And I suppose you have two of them already? Smile

    Seems like we copied it at least to 90%, no I dont have them yet. Super hard to find, only saw 1 one for sale so far and I was too late and it was way to expensive.

    Also,  new trousers are cut really different from current BDU like trousers.

    Interesting. Dont know what to think about the placement of the zippers, saw that too on the new serbian variant of the M10 camo uniform.

    Strange indeed, but looks like those strangely placed zippers lead to a huge pocket under each small cargo..

    Here is another pretty cool piece.  Waiting for the proper helmet...

    I believe those zippers are for vents, rather than actual pouches; this design is copied from the UF PRO "Striker HT" pants. UF PRO is an interesting company in its own right, competing with the dominance of purely Crye copies. They are in Slovenia, I believe.

    Well, you are correct !  The zippers are for vents. Very strange and overly complicated trousers, IMHO.

    Rip, is your desert set in unissued condition? Sure looks like it from where I sit! I have a lightly used set and the colors don't "pop" as much as yours.

    I'm really envious of you getting a hold of ranks and other sticky things. Those are harder to get than the uniforms.

    Thanks, Steve. Was very fortunate to find the desert set, especially in these conditions. Came with yellow paper tags. Insignia was not as hard to find as the set, but yes, not easy either..

    Also lucky to find this helmet and cover...

    Interesting helmet. I've not kept track of who is using what these days. I'm guessing the helmet is taken from another nation's production? France?
