    See Post 117 for pictures of the prototypes(thank god they have fixed the Trouser pockets!) and Post's 394 and 399 in this thread for pictures of the finished product RE the shirt and the trousers.The shirt had the UBACS pocket added.On ONE sleeve and the Trouser pockets were angled backwards instead of forwards and the larger slotted buttons used instead of the smaller ones to close it.)

    The only differences on the smock from the prototype and the issue is the addition of the fleece lining to the collar.

    The boonie hat is as per the prototype and is HUGE.

    The UBACS now comes with a side zipped collar.

    The shirt looks minging… the trousers with set elastics, its going to look gank on guys who are not straight off the peg.....has the actual DPM pattern changed? Looking at the detail the actual patterns in the shirts seem to have acquired more 'squiggles'
    Time for another break I think......
