    The long bits with the holes through them on the side are sleeves, you puts your hands all the way to the cuffs. :D

  7. Expensive item that had matching trousers with built-in braces, ankle map pockets and sewn-in baggy knees. Designed for helicopter crews so that they would look a lttle bit like soldiers but still be wearing flying suits, hence the spring-loaded pencil pocket and zipped chest pockets to minimise the FOD-dispenser tendency. The fold away hood was an expensive solution to a minor problem and a bloody irritation to wear. About as good a jacket as the ordinary green cold weather flying suit jacket, ie not very, but retaining a certain aircrew cachet. There was an all-green version that preceded the DPM version.

    A curiousity, no more.
     
  8. Thanks for that. And is my jacket pretty much useless?
     
  9. Go away.Quickly.
     
  10. It's not quite useless, you can wear it as a gash jacket still.. go fishing in it, car maintenance on chilly days, bit of airsofting. Whatever you want really. What use did you have in mind?
     
  11. Well i was thinking about using it for cadets as a field jacket.
     
  12. Answer to the allyness: its about as ally as an AGC clerk wearing a sniper smock! (yes i have seen this done complete with brand new flashes)
     
  13. No you haven't.
