Many thanks gary and yes i did notice the rubber type coating ,the british nbc suit seems to leave charcoal dust all over the under garments where as the us version has protective lining have you noticed how much surplus pre 95 pattern desert jackets and trousers are out there now ,they seem to have flooded the market ,just a quick question but were they brit gw1 desert boots the type that feel apart in the heat ,paul (gunny) mentioned it a while back mate

Hi James, yes there does appear to be a glut of P90 DPM on the surplus market,odd and perhaps it's been enough years now for the MoD to realise they do not need it , so it has been made available or sale?
The boots you have displayed are indeed the type to allegedly disintegrate, though I am sure sure if the case for all of these boots or just a bad batch, as the pair I have in my collection were worn throughout the gulf war and are in good shape still!
I think you need ( does not every collector ?) a set of sparse DDPM, these are the holy grail of P90's.

great to have your input here again gary and thanks for your valued thoughts on those boots ,your right the sparse is indeed hard to find ,ok so ive learned something ,i wasn't aware the pre 95 pattern was called p90 so thanks for that bit of info ,cheers james

Not sure if any of this has been shown before? Here is my set of Australian DPMU (Disruptive Pattern Mid Point Uniform) pouches. Sadly I don't have the uber rare uniform.

Yeah it is fairly rare / uncommon over here too, most was painted over or dumped. So a full set unpainted & unmolested set is hard (but not impossible)
