NSN For Smock, Windproof

Hello chaps - had a search, couldn't find any answers to this, so here goes.

Looking on Ebay, there's a bloke selling a 'Windproof Smock.' I asked for the NSN, he says its 8415-99-573-5265
Could anyone just check this for me so I can see that the scrote isn't trying to rip me off? Cheers.
Mate it comes up as Ponch,combat cloth,gaberdine,cotton,woodland
Its worth just over £16
So the answer there is no its not the smock
What SCOC are you using? Comes up as gaberdine smock 170-180 96-104. Basic price of £22.47.
08/01/2007 just got given it mate it also says
sgle breasted;attached hood w/cowl;c/w sleeves; 170-180 cm h; 96-104 chest
but I have checked it to make sure bratty fingers has'nt struck

They're poo. Get yourself a proper windproof smock!
Yeah, I thought that with the big map-pocket zips on the front. I thought it looked very like the standard field jacket, s'why I wanted to check.
How come they're crap?
Yes thats the new style windproof (with little avalanche locator pocket on the left arm), but as already mentioned, they're crap.

If you want a 180/96 old pattern windproof smock the NSN is 8415-99-1379101.

I think I've got about 6 spare ones stashed between my loft at home and my locker in work but they've all suffered the same problem, the sleeve wrists fall apart.

The usual fix is to fit old wooly pully sleeves in place a'la the para smock but I've never got around to it.

I might sell them all on fleabay one day with 'SAS' or 'RM' in the title for extra walt appeal.
Depends on how much you want to cough up& what you want it for, I got the Modified thingy one that SASS & other folk are selling, great when running the Ranges, bugger when tramping across the hills even with 'pit zips'!
just get ya self down to ATR(W) all the CROW are walking around in them now. But for CROW only,no way will the one eyed t@@t down the store give one to the PS cocknose!!
0034-99-093-1718 Smock combat camouflage windproof (modified) Woodland Size 130/120

Number a bit faded so the 093 bit may be wrong. A MMPI (SCOC) check should clear it up.
8405-99-739-5248 is jkt ltwt woodland etc
the nsn for the smock with hood is 8415-99-573-5270 taken off one I have (190-120)
0034-99-093-1718 doesnt come up mate sorry
