DPM Gore windstopper fleece

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I saw windstopper reversible fleeces in desert and dpm a couple of years ago on the field and trek website, but now I want one, I cannot actually find one. John Bull has only got XL. Does anyone know where I can get one from?
  2. I never saw the point of a DPM fleece as no-one would ever be seen dead wearing it as an outer layer.
  3. Eat more for a month or two then go back to John Bull. Glad I could help
  4. Try telling the vast majority of the toms in the TA that quote.

    They are the masters of mixed dress and reactalight glasses, it's like a tribute act to a porn star poacher.
  5. I have one of these. They were made as a sample batch for DC IPT and extras were probably sold on in limited numbers. They were trialed and failed. The troops did not like the fact that when you wear the temperate DPM side out you see the desert side when you turn the coller down (obviously vis versa).

    I have also noticed that as the stitching is note standard (its difficult to over lap textile in a single layer, reversible system) the seams are pulling apart.

    Therefore while I am a fan of Gore I would go with the troop trials and not get one.
