Late Cold War Revisited

Regular reader Chas, following my 'Cold War Revisited' and 'More Commie Gear' posts, expressed a preference for E. German Rain Camo since it gave him fond memories of when the when the wall came down.

Always one to satisfy the requests of my readers, I present a 'Late Cold War' E. German uniform and field gear:

Standard uniform along w/ an AK mag pouch, field pack, zeltbahn, canteen and field cap. Now pictured is the correct belt and a breadbag. The magazine in the AK is a Bulgarian 20 rnd tanker.

How hard is it to find stuff that fits you? A buddy of mine dabbled in Eastern Bloc surplus uniforms and found that starving commies don't grow very big...

Finding original (when it exists) in my size isn't that hard. I'm avg. height and med. build so I can usually find stuff generally close.

There is a growing market in Europe for surplus so there is more reproduction uniforms which is I've seen in larger sizes.
