    These are often sold as 'SAS' issue but are the standard issue windies with velcro at the bottom of the legs to facilitate donning and doffing over boots.

    Yep, spot-on. Over either your green lightweights, or '68 pattern DPM's and with the quilted Chinese fighting suit trousers. Or long johns, quilted suit and windies.

    I do like HE Textiles gear. It appears they had the main contract on Windproofs in the 1970s. I have a 59 pattern para smock made by them and it just feels better made than some of the other manufacturers.
