desert gortex


I had one issued to me on temporary loan whilst it pi55ed down last winter in Al-Amarah. Of course it was dutifully returned and is not taking up the slightest bit of space in my loft.
The desert pattern Gortex jackets were issued (well I used to issue them) to scale for personnel deploying to Iraq in the winter months. I was issued one when I deployed on Op Resinate North many moons ago and its lived in my loft since then.

If you need one it should be issued. If you are a walt it will not.
I'll sell you a set for £199 :thumright:

Surely that should read £199,000 (judging by the eBay SAS windproof thread).

although why you need waterproofs in a desert seems a bit odd to me?
