Do the "Boys" really buy Arktis?

#1
I took a day off last week to take the Clan Seagoon around the Bath and West Show - an excellent albeit very wet day out. While there I was enticed into one stand by the sign “Country Covers” thinking that I might find a set of new seat-covers for the battle-wagon. Instead, I found the tackiest of Walt-Cam for the civvy shooting community. I swear that I was not in military look-alike mode and hadn’t even spoken when the rep’s opening line was “Hello sir – we make clothes for the British SF” and she went on with patter about how their nice little leaf and fern number was a best seller with the boys from Stirling Lines. Then I noticed that all of their kit was Arktis…..

Someone put me out of my misery – are “they” really into something that would not look out of place on an Italian sparrow-hunt?

Arktis used to be quite good (about 6 years ago) but then started mass-producing everything overseas. As soon as that happened so the quality caved in.
