Heard about these but first time I've seen detailed pics with tags - good score! I don't think they were an OpFor item myself but specially developed for SF use and kept in war stock 'just in case' - I'm surprised a few more haven't popped up since they must have been made obsolete by the intro of DPDU raingear... or they may be 'retro-desirable' within the community!

I was puzzled when I first saw this jacket, it was only later that I saw the pics of SASR in 2001. Too bad it didn't have the trousers as well.

I agree, that producing goretex sets for Opfor would be a little too expensive for the ADF... It may be that these were initially made for the SASR deployments to Kuwait?

A friend has been doing some research on 3 colour use during those deployments and hopefully I'll post some of this info when I get around to photographing and documenting the Opfor sets...

I have a DPCU Gore-Tex jacket in what I think is the same cut. It came with a button-in grey polar fleece liner.
