    Default Any thoughts about the reproduction uniform company, ‘Paddelaters’?

    Hi all,

    I am not sure if this is the right place on the forum to post this, so I apologise in advance.

    I am looking to purchase a set of repro P’08 webbing for my collection. I have searched around for the cheapest, and I have found one from a company, Paddelaters. It is for sale for $155AUD, (about 115 USD). Has anyone purchased from this company before? What was the quality, accuracy, material, etc like?

    I have looked at the one that IMA sells, but as I am located in Australia, postage is about $120 AUD, on top of the $170 AUD for the webbing. This website, Paddelaters, offers free shipping worldwide.

    Here is the link to the website: Paddelaters
    (Australia WW1 uniform & equipment (left hand) > scroll down))

    Thanks.

    He steals photos of original items and then offers his repros using photos of the original.....

    Oh no, I am sorry that happened to you, Adrian. I sent off an email to him requesting photos of the actual webbing I would receive, and I got a dodgy email stating that there weren’t any in stock and they don’t have any photos of it.

    I think I will spend the extra money elsewhere so I get good quality, and I am not supporting his bad practices.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Harry. I’ll check them out and get some webbing from them, if postage isn’t too expensive, of course.

    That’s the one. My great grandfather. He was a cabinet maker by trade in Elwood, and was tasked to make coffins for the dead soldiers.
