Well thought out uniform design. Made of a similar material to the gorka uniforms and in the same colour

The trousers have an internal gaiter that you fasten around your ankle and tie before putting on your boots. The trouser leg is then pulled over the top of your boot and is elasticated. The trousers feature cargo pockets on the front of the legs instead of the side, a follow on from the popular 'mabuta. pattern uniform introduced during the Soviet war in Afganistan as well as handwarmer pockets on the hips, a pocket on the seat, a small double pocket on the back of the left leg, and a knife pocket on the right thigh. Im not sure what the pocket on the back of the left leg is for holding, but it appears to be for signal flares, or possibly a flashlight. The knife pocket will hold an AK bayonet, a ballistic knife (if you can get one) or a 2 / 3 D-cell maglite.
The jacket has a plethora of sleeve pockets which are useful for a multitude of items, cigarettes, compasses, money, firesteels etc as well as internal pocket for documents, and two breast pockets

Exceptionally well designed uniform, and useful if you dont want to go about in camouflage gear

Честь полка - моя честь. Слава полка - моя слава
