    Hello everyone, a friend of mine offered me this Luftwaffe flight suit but I know close to nothing about these and was wondering if you guys could help me authenticate it. It also comes with a letter from the supposed GI who captured it to the individual he bought this from. As always thanks for looking and any help would be greatly appreciated

    The Talon zipper has me thrown!, I know that Zipp was made by the UK and Germany during WW2 but I'm not so sure about Talon?

    I had one of these some years ago that was KM marked and have seen some used by Aircrew ,The main zip may have been replaced post war as a lot of these were used on motorbikes post war

    Hello,

    PRYM H9 and Elite pulls is what I have on mine. Here is my high altitude flight suit by Karl Heisler on my website in brown leather if it helps in your review. Is there any maker labels on the inside zipper placket? Luftwaffe High Altitude Suit Group

    Hey everyone just a quick update, while I did end up passing on this item, the zipper was replaced sometime postwar, as we found the original in one of the pockets! But thanks to everyone who replied and helped me

    I think Kradman was on to it when he suggested use by a post war motorcyclist.
