    A strange set of OG 107 Hot Weather combat clothing.

    Lots of differences in these pieces, especially the coat.

    Top pockets look like slanted RDF type pockets, and it  also has  take up tabs,  narrow sleeve  cuffs, and of course, the tags are strange.

    There is  a  DAL number, as opposed to the familiar DLA number in the tags of  both the coat, and the trousers.

    The trousers have  a buttoned fly, and old style cargo pockets, as opposed to the RDF style pockets of the coat, and no bandage/wallet  pocket inside the cargo pocket.

    I have been told the set may have been a OPFOR uniform, but I just do not know.   The set appears to be unused.

    One other thing that puzzles me is that the coat is an XL, while the trousers are a Large.  This obviously  indicates that different sizes of these pieces  were made.

    The 87- c  date is strange , does  anyone have any idea ?????

    Commercial item sold by a large surplus dealer. The S.W.I. stands for Schreck Wholesale International. Good set to kick around in.

    Thanks Fins..

    Definitely a good set to wear, will certainly keep me from wearing and possibly damaging the real deal..
