    I've seen a bunch of different pouches and bags made from the East German Rain Pattern. So I decided there should be a thread showing all of the items for a NVA Rain Pattern Uniform. Let me start it off with some of my pictures:
    first off the pouches
    left a Mag pouch and on the right a grenade pouch

    I've come to notice that there are two variations on these. The mag has gray closers and uses gray metal loops to keep it closed. While others like the grenade have green loops and closers.
    The shovel and cover

    Also has the green variation
    the Canteen

    feel free to add onto the list

    You have opened a big ol nasty can O worms with this one , not only are there variations in the closer and straps , but early and late rain pattern camo as well , there is a bewildering variety of pouches and items .
    Just to Clarify ,early items had a rain pattern closer or green/Grey webbing for straps , Mid production stuff almost always have Grey webbing , the Late and last pattern of gear has the brighter green webbing for closing the pouches , the last uniform and gear is referred to as UTV gear , and was never issued in any real numbers although pictures do exist of it in use ,but few and far between.
    Early curved mag pouch

    Back in the late 80s, DDR had a catalog and you could buy ALL their uniforms/field equipment fro relatively low prices. They had a nice rain camo combat vest e tool cover etc. I bought one of everything at the time. Long since sold.

    Sorry, long gone and no idea where to get info on it.

    They also had quite nice reference books on military subjects and was on their mailing list for years before the wall came down. Still have a set of the rain pattern winter uniform ans summer uniform I bought.

    I just noticed how similar the yoke looks to the Canadian '82 pattern yoke, the web belt buckle also looks the same as the Cdn/British. '37 pattern.
