    From Militarymart

    Proper 80/20 mix one a bit flattened so I'm going to give it a brush with some lanolin but otherwise fine. £10 + postage

    Just far enough from Chorley, lancs
    Military mart is just down the road from me.
    The online shop's pretty good, but the actual shop is a nightmare to find anything.

    I might pop in for a look at those fleeces.

    Anyone is familiar with the £12.50 Swedish army rucksack by Hagglofs on that page (or another if it’s random)

    No, but I thought that for rough use, at that price, it's a real bargain.

    I had one of these jackets before but it was too big and can't remember the exact size

    I am 6' with a 44" chest ... what do you reckon would be the best, L or XL. Army sizes get me confused

    Well it fluffed up quite well, I just had a go with a hairbrush and some lanolin and didn't go crazy. It lost a handful of fluff but the warmth increased by an appreciable amount.

    I'm 6' and take a 40" for my shoulders though my chest is 38" really (thank you rock climbing) and the one I've got is quite loose fitting but plenty long enough. I asked for a medium long but it feels a bit more like a long large. I'll check out the size on the label when I get home.
