    I got this piece a couple of weeks ago and I´m really impressed by it. First of all, it´s the first one I´ve seen and I´ve been in the Swedish Defence Forces on and off for the last 15 years.

    First of all, it´s issued! I know there was some discussion on a coverall in M90 pattern a while ago. This is the real deal, issued and tagged (i.e. has a M-number):

    From the label we can see that it´s manufactured in Tunisia by the Belgian company Seyntex. Above the manufacturer is say:
    "Bärandeföreskrift: Får endast bäras mot bomullsplagg" which translates in to "Condition of usage: Only allowed to be used with cotton cloathing". That, when it comes to Swedish uniforms, mean one thing: flame retardent/resistant! The fabric is quite thick and heavy. The whole thing weighs in at abot 4,5 lbs.



    The overall has two large pockets on the thigs, locked with velcro. There is also two breast pockets which are located on the inside of the overall:

    The legs have side zippers and veclro to seal them properly, the zipper extends up to the waist:

    The collar also have a zipper for the hood, the uniform I got is missing the hood:

    An absolutely great piece of Swedish gear,

    Have seen quite a few similar pieces, but not this version.


    Thanks for posting...

    Thanks!

    It's a really well adapted uniform that suits the Swedish wartime road base system!
