Well acknowledging the caveats about posting non-US items. But this is one of the nicest windporrf suits I have ever seen. French custom made. I love the 'Ricky' styling of the jacket.

I always thought I had posted my bullet proofs. I was wrong so here is one of my two sets.

The fifth pocket is made of the same material used for the enlargement of the siege.

 

This is another NYC flea market pick ups from the 80s.

Nobody has posted on this thread in a long time but I saw a few other windproof boonies posted here so decided to add it to the record. Thanks Ron, Gil, Guy, and Owen for helping me id this new piece in my collection found just last week at auction at the bottom of a box with some random WW2 equipment. Paul

Thanks AG. My gut feeling was that it was good. I've been enjoying learning about windproof now.
