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. Go easy on me im a newbie, first post here. I recently got a set of brand new Gore-tex german army coat and trousers but after an hour in steady rain they start to get damp. Does anyone know if there are fake goretex branded german army clothes out there? As i suspect these are not real goretex.

    thanks in advance

  2. theres a company in hamburg that ,,copies all german army,,bunderswehr kit,, sounds like youve got a set,,,youed be better off with a british , real set.
  3. Its a global conspiracy by the Chinese, they've bought up the worlds stockpiles of Goretex, pies and fence panels.
    Better get used to being damp, and speaking cantonese.

    Incidentally, probably the wrong forum for this, try the Int cell or QMs.
  4. Are you sure the dampness isn't sweat, it is supposed to be breathable but!
  5. Lol check that it isn't sweat, and if they get wet they can't be too waterproof, unless you're laying on wet ground which can make things damp despite their waterproof label. Just coat it in fat ;)
