    Personally, I havent, but that doesnt mean there isnt one out there.
    It looks like one that is "unit tailor made" from a "pull-over" camouflage smock that was possibly damaged, (a fairly common activity among all armies) or to make it more practical than having to run the lacing up each time.

    ye it could of been done for any reason really i reenact a mg42 gunner and when im on the move with the mg it will always snag on the laces of the smock
    so when you have to drop and set the mg up in a hurry it can be a pain
