US M43 Uniform

Hi all,

For those looking for an M43 Uniform, Soldier of Fortune are now selling Kay Canvas Jacket and Trousers.

The trousers have been out for a few months now but they have only put the jackets up for sale in the last week or so now that they are in stock.

I think there might be some issues with the trousers though so take note before buying.. I am normally a 32" waist so I thought I would go up to a 34" just to give me a bit of extra room seeing as I'd be crawling, running and sitting in all sort of positions. Unfortunately when I got the 34" trousers they were really tight and the leg was really short.

Sent them back and got 36" waist! A fairly big increase but with the adjustable waist band buttons, they fit really well now and the quality is really good.

Just about to buy a jacket and I'll be ready for any Market Garden/Late War impressions!

cheers for the heads up, it seems to be a common theme with american trousers across the board.

Just received the other half (Jacket)

Got the same size jacket as my M42 and it fits a treat.

No insignia are stitched on so you would have to buy a badge or ranks separately and sew them on yourselves.

I'm looking forward to using it now.
