This is probably goonbaiting... but could someone tell me to whom these "Artic Smocks" where issued to, was it an exclusive thing? The ones I keep coming across seem to be different flavours. The classic "cotten gaberdine ones", some will have the front rank slide, some won't, will always have classic temperate green buttons. What seems to be a more recent smock but in more cleaner DPM and alot heavier material but not ripstop, still labelled "Artic smocks" and have the green temp buttons, these ones aren't cotton gaberdine but have all the features of our new windproof smocks minus the inside zip pockets plus the field dressing pouch we see on the para smocks. The thing is, I'm strangly drawn to using the "Artic smock", it just seems so ally, I have a windproof but I wanna use this one! I feel to get some green elastic for cam like the sniper smocks (which don't use elastic, it's green tape, I know because I have one, don't worry I don't use it. Ok enough waffling, I know I do it alot, just someone please tell me to whom these "Artic Smocks", I thought at first maybe Royal Marine's because they're supposedly meant to be up for that kind of thing? Oh, and is there such a thing as a genuinely issued SAS smock?
