    NSN PECOC label. The material of the smock is the very lightweight material, T Bag I think it's called, it's lightweight but I would say it's cheaply made!!

    Ooo.. I haven't seen one of those before!

    Tea Bag cloth is a highly breathable fabric that was used for a time on tropical and desert uniforms. It's tough to say from the pics, but the texture doesn't look right for it. I also don't see it being a good cloth for a windproof.

    Hi Steve, yes it's a lovely smock, very light weight compared to the standard Desert Windy! The vents the shoulders of the smock are unique, never seen anything like it...I don't think it would be practical long term...having a bergan, webbing etc. I don't think it would have a long life!!
