This is a pair of genuine British
army wet weather
MK 2 DPM camo gortex
gaiters in new and unissued condition. These are slightly different from the earlier type, they have a camo
nylon collar piece at the top and the the undersole cord is now nylon cord. This is lighter and once the length has been adjusted, easy to put on. The nylon collar has a drawcord at the upper and lower point of this collar adjusted by cordlocks. The material is waterproof
and breathable and there is a full length, heavy duty zip on each gaiter so can be opened out completely for ease of putting on.
Despite the prevalence of waterproof
overtrousers, there is still a big demand for gaiters as they are great protection on wet ground when it is not actually raining and overtrousers are not needed.
