You may or may not have noticed but ex-army is back in fashion. If you're looking for that urban style Kanye is wearing these days look no further. This thing is the bomb. Looks amazing and top notch quality. Not to mention the price which is a fraction of high street copy ex army stuff.

Like a lot of other people say here sizing is small. I'm 5'10" and 74kgs and usually wear a medium and went for the large. Could even have gone for XL for the super oversize look.

Was intrigued by other reviewers saying they found interesting things in the pockets. I found a pair of freshly washed, used earplugs!

Condition is 10/10 as far as I can see. The fabric is great. Super tough but flexible and light. Massive, numerous pockets and German flags I removed with a paring knife really easily. I'm not anti German, I just can't be bothered having the discussion with people who are. The hood is good and roomy enough to fit the biggest of headphones and beanie under.

Probably the best purchase I've made on Amazon!

Extremely happy with my jacket! Really heavy duty cotton perfect for the woodland. The camo has not faded (the lining likewise also like the covered seems ), and is not a over the top pattern. All zips, poppers and stitching are in mint condition with the exception of, a zipper toggle missing from left hip pocket. But an easy fix with a keyring if not for this I would mistake this as a brand new jacket. Very nice hood not huge but a slight over hang perfect, with a draw cord, as does the waist and bottom hem. The main zip is three quarters the length from the top collar followed then by poppers, good for mobility and easy access to anything on your belt or underlayment. Posting and packaging above and beyond expectations.

Ordered XL which measured 25 inches armpit to armpit which was perfect for me.Jacket was used but was very clean.I removed German army flashes with a stitch picker, cut off epaulettes and unpicked velcro and washed jacket. I now have a really good wind proof bird watching and fishing jacket (80 percent cotton 20 percent polyester).

Bought this for fishing and love it. If the wife would let me I'd wear it all the time but she's having none of it. I got the xxl size as I'm six two and big built and there's adequate room for another few layers under it. The zip is half length from neck to belly button with a couple stud buttons completing the length of the coat and while it takes a little getting used to it is ideal for relieving yourself and for getting full knee action while you're legging it for gamekeepers(joking, I always buy a permit).

The 1st jacket I received was too small, (order big) and had a couple of holes in it but Cissbury were happy to exchange at no extra cost and the replacement - although not brand new - is in very good condition and a much better size. The Jacket itself is unlined but of thick strong polycotton with a drawcord at the waist and at the bottom of the jacket and around the hood. It also has underarm zips which help with ventilation. I have already worn it a number of times whilst going through thick woodland and it has proven itself to be robust. I am very pleased with the product and the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because of the size issues.

I'm 6'2 and slim with 38-40" chest, ordered a large to ensure sleeve length was ok, fits well over a jumper. Not sure it's been washed since last user, with a far amount of ?sand in one of the pockets, however it came with 4 free pairs of earplugs in one of the other pockets so I guess you win some you lose some right?

A few slightly suspicious white stains (maybe bird poo?) But to be honest, for £15 it's fine for airsoft / fishing camo.

I got the XXLarge one being 6'6 tall and 20 stone and it fits perfectly. Wouldn't suggest buying this if you are any bigger. No damage or repairs, really good condition. Not particularly heavyweight but not lightweight either. Not lined so would not provide warmth particularly. As other views mention, nice deep pockets. Pockets on hip, chest, sleeve and inside pocket as well.
looking forward to wearing it out when walking the dog.
Did find a bit of wrapped up wire in pocket indicating it had been used.
delivery was very quick.

Damn near indestructible, very well priced and a proper camouflage that works. Lots of pockets, perfect for bushcraft. Only downside is it is quite heavy but that's outweighed by its other excellent qualities.

Fantastic for taking the dog out, he does like to jump up and you can get away for ages missing a wash with these as the muck just blends in with the flecktarn camo. Loads pockets for poo bags, torch, and treats etc. Wear mine with a flecktarn field shirt loose underneath giving more pockets and a bit more warmth when needed.
