The reversible pocket bags are constructed in reed/green HBT material. The smock has had a tunnel looped elastic at the waistline. The waistline elastic is original and never replaced, it have more or less no elasticity to it anymore. The two cuff elastics are also original with more or less no elasticity still, one seem have gone up and one can see the White elastic material. Foliage loops are all present. The lower tail skirt has a dual-ply hem at the bottom edge. The sleeves have open vented armpits where it is some damage and tears specially at the right arm all seen on the photos. The smocks were designed large enough to fit over the standard field uniform.


The smock is well worn and show wear all over but specially under arms and at the end of the sleeves, it is still showing reasonably strong colours on both sides .


This is an well worn smock which would look nice to a well worn combat display!!!
