    Nice little collection you have started there, the pack is a patt 08 large pack it just needs a set of valise and L straps now to finish it off, is there any markings in it? It looks to me like it may be an Indian made one.

    Im not familiar with that maker but I still think its Indian, Im sure someone will be able to clarify that though. the kiwi shorts are also nice as is the beret I have an almost identical Australian made one.

    Whoa!! Now that is expensive... you can usually pic up Australian ones on ebay unissued from between $20 to $50au I bought my unissued pair for $30 about 10 years ago and I thought I got ripped off lol my other pair were free so that evened it out a bit.
    Im not sure how hard kiwi ones are to find but I would have thought they would be just as easy, but judging that the price was in NZ dollars I guess not, still at the end of the day they are a nice pair of shorts and you are happy with them and thats all that matters
