Reply to "Modifying the '95 Pattern Windproof Smock"

The Redledge reminds me of first gen SF-issue Gore-Tex circa 1983-85.  I don't remember who made it, but it was in an outrageous emerald green that pissed off 82nd First Sergeants and Sergeants Major whenever a relaxed grooming standards SF long hair in un-marked OG-107s, desert boots, outrageous web gear, and unidentifiable small arms rucked by.

A friend of mine who went on into the Army Acquisition Corps asked me about SF gear.  I told him the magic equation was:  it has to be incredibly useful, weigh nothing, pack up small, fold out big, and be in a color not found in Army Reg 670-1.
