    That's a hard one to say so much of the snow stuff was field and locally made I like the material on it compares to some German winter smocks I have seen hopefully other's with more knowledge on these will come along. Most of the factory made splinter ones reverse to white but a lot of them as I said are field made. timothy

    These types of covers are hard to authenticate, was it done by the unit,s tailor, at company level, etc, it has obviously been done to a more or less professional standard of sewing/stitching and from what i can remember they were supposed to be made from 5 seperate pieces of cloth ,as is this one, but these are relatively easy to reproduce by anyone with a good knowledge of how the thing should look and able to use a sewing machine, i have made two for friends by measuring the cloth over my helmets, and my wife showed me how to stitch with an ordinary machine. Tape for drawstring is readily available in any haberdashers shop and looks the part when slightly aged or frayed. This one shown looks to be in a very clean condition, i have my doubts but reserved until proven otherwise

    Hi thanks for the reply , I totally see where you are coming from on this, but as it was an unexpected extra that came free with the gas mask tin, I am happy to view it as a nice display item that may have the possibility of being right.
