    Euro Miltary Gor-TEX suits

    Tell me what you guys think of this gear
    I can get it in - it is "used" but I think it probably more like New but out the back of a NATO Wharehouse
    German and Austrian Military gear.
    Top quality - I would imagine - but I have not laid my hands on any to judge myself as yet - but mother-inlaw will have a Suit tomorrow to appraise and can send over here.
    Prob be around 200-250 NZ$$
    I know the salopettes are not really a NZ thing - unless you a White baiter or fisher person - but to be honest I a little sick of the tightness of our trouser option with the elastic fix around the pukoo

    Its brilliant stuff.

    I had a pair of the plain Olive green trousers years ago and my German mate gets the Jacket and Pants combo new from German Ebay.

    Looks like no special Prices in Ukraine looking at those EBay threads
    She going to pay more that that indicated on Euro EBay - but it is for 2 piece suit

    Do you guys think the trousers would be a goer - or just the jacket

    Jackets are O K but too short. Trousers are a pain unless the sides have zips

    Do you mean Zipa up th leg for getting on over boots
    Also - what I seen on models - the Jackets look not to short

    Anyway - mother -inlaw got one for me - - but I dont think they look a good option for reselling - time I pay freight - Duty - GST etc etc
    - they be $200 min here

    Thanks guys - always pays to ask at the "coal face"

    Mother-in-law got this suit yesterday.

    Apparently - the Jacket is definably Brand New and the pants part is like new.
    She said very good quality and fabric seam sealed etc.

    Only negative she said was the German emblems - but they can be removed

    Cost worked out a little less than expected too!!

    So if anyone interested and would be just b4 Xmas delivery 160NZ + PP for full suit.

    PS
    That is 160$ for the top picture suit - with salopettes.
    Can get the other too - but she not seen in her hands to evaluate proper yet
    quentin and berg243 like this.
