5.0 out of 5 stars Wow what a great bit of kit for the price
Well where to start. The small package arrived by courier this morning. I thought mmmm.... opened it up and was amazed to see the above product. It was vacuum packed in 2 separate bags. it was V packed in 1989 (i think) so already it is over 20 years old lol (but absolutely brand new)! It is a genuine NATO issue suit (charcoal lined in case you are fishing in or near a...

2.0 out of 5 stars NBC Suit
Having worn these (not every day) for 20+ years whilst being in the Army, i can assure you that they, as time goes on, start to get smelly and dirty quite quick, also the charcoal lining, which is evident around the hood, is quite rough when worn for the first few times, and does start to leave black marks, around the neck and face, also any clothes worn underneath,...

This review is from: NBC Army Jacket & Trousers for Fishing Shooting Hunting or Paintball (Misc.)
Well where to start. The small package arrived by courier this morning. I thought mmmm.... opened it up and was amazed to see the above product. It was vacuum packed in 2 separate bags. it was V packed in 1989 (i think) so already it is over 20 years old lol (but absolutely brand new)! It is a genuine NATO issue suit (charcoal lined in case you are fishing in or near a nuclear reactor ha ha)The quality of the garments is absolutely fab!!!REMEMBER as most of the other reviews give the items a couple of washes in the old machine before you wear it or you WILL end up a lil darker (charcoal)and a little sore in places (neck area)- but remember the protection against radiation will diminish he he. A great bit of kit for fishing, hunting or just generally creeping around a forest (legally of course he he)A maze of pockets for your various bits of bobs. Now sizing.... they say one size fits all and it genuinely does. It has various Velcro pads and straps to cater for your various sizes. A bit of pushing and pulling and tightening and your there. It is warm but not thick, waterproof but not that plastic style suit where you drown in your own sweat. A great snug-hood that does not blow off your head in a breeze. It was built for combat and if that's anything near what you want to do then this is the product for you... Product rating 10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Wearing Camo History, 23 Sept. 2012

I opened my vacuum packed camo gear and found the date of creation was 1989! This didnt bother me, I actually think its cool that I own 23 year old clothing and it looks brand new.

Anyway because its been packed for so long the lining was a bit struck together but I unstuck it and put it on. I have to say Im well impressed. Im medium build and about 5' 10" and this fits me well.

Its thin but very warm.

Im going to enjoy skipping around the hill huting in these and will wear them fishing too.

The only negative I will say and why Ive docked a star is that mine have a few grey patches of cloth on knees and a few on jacket. This is not camo and stands out a bit but Im not too fussed for the price. Im gunna buy another set. :)

2.0 out of 5 stars NBC Suit, 7 Mar. 2011

This review is from: NBC Army Jacket & Trousers for Fishing Shooting Hunting or Paintball (Misc.)
Having worn these (not every day) for 20+ years whilst being in the Army, i can assure you that they, as time goes on, start to get smelly and dirty quite quick, also the charcoal lining, which is evident around the hood, is quite rough when worn for the first few times, and does start to leave black marks, around the neck and face, also any clothes worn underneath, especially trousers, will have the charcoal rubbed off on them. It is not an item that can be easily packed away, as it does take up quite a bit of space, i was 6ft 3in, and struggled with the larger size (190/120cm) but did eventually get a larger size, i dont know whether the seller that sells these, has these though? The outer DPM lining is thin, and can rip easy if snagged, as it is only there to disguise the protective NBC lining underneath. Whilst in the Army, these items were classed at "P" class and would cost an individual nearly £100, so this seller is indeed selling at a very good price....

5.0 out of 5 stars Waterproof? Boy are they😊, 16 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NBC Army Jacket & Trousers for Fishing Shooting Hunting or Paintball (Misc.)
Brilliant.left me black like but boy does it do the job 😊 very happy, cheap too, my friends thought it cost around 60 quid, as the jackets are between 25 and 30 alone!! Excellent value, extremely waterproof, wear base layers though, first few wears of it the excess waterproofing gets on your skin but it comes right off. Nothing to complain about at all!!

5.0 out of 5 stars For all you preppers out there these are a godsend, 13 Jun. 2013
This review is from: NBC Army Jacket & Trousers for Fishing Shooting Hunting or Paintball (Misc.)
Since purchasing this suit i havnt taken it off, i have recently returned from the congo were i got the idea of purchasing this suit, i had realised that at any moment we could be engulfed in nuclear flames, i understand that if this was the case this suit would protect me apart from my face which is not covered by the suit, my face would be ripped from my skull like a tiger ripping flesh from a gazelles back. Apart from that my body would still be alive so its not all bad! An excellent all rounder
