Looks like the Sturm made smock. From all that I've read on various forums, it's decent and the material is good, but needs some minor alterations to the pockets. I'm not sure what they are, but Don Calder of FJR6 in the US apparently does them.

"would like something different to all the splinter smocks i see"

Bear in mind - you should always wear what was most commonly worn by the unit in question at the time in question.

Never "to be differant"

We all have that urge - but always be on guard against it. It is the way of the Farb side.

Supposedly the material is the nearest anyone has gotten to getting the green (which has blue / yellow in it )
Other makers have all just been green

Downside the top pockets are set wrong - and zips / construction arent as good as Lost Battalions / G-Max.

However Lost Battalions is no longer an option anyway.

Not sure if there is a better choice than having one of these altered - at the moment.

Somebody was offering these ready altered ? Might have bee Zeugmeister (but hes gone as well)
