West German Bundeswehr Sewing Kit
West German Bundeswehr Sewing Kit
West German Bundeswehr Sewing Kit

One of the most maligned and overlooked items in a soldier's equipment is the field repair kit, also known as the sewing kit. In fact, when supplies are happily humming to and from your army, most soldiers tend to just replace broken gear or torn clothing. Especially in the era of "low intensity" conflicts, the humble sewing kit has fallen to the wayside.

All of that said, knowing a few simple stitches can quite literally save your life. The human animal is a weak one when it comes to the elements. Long ago we traded comfortable fur for sleek (relatively) hairless bodies and high-performance cooling. That trade helped make the human an apex predator. It also made us incredibly fragile.

These high-quality German sewing kits date from the 1960s and contain everything you need to repair nearly any uniform. They are also dirt cheap and small enough to forget about inside a pack or sneak into a pocket. Combined with a few YouTube tutorials, you will find that you can stretch the usable life of your clothing a lot longer. Once you know what to look for, one advantage of a sewing kit is actually preventative maintenance — a loose thread or poorly secured seam can be stopped before it becomes an issue.

      Damage Your Favorite Shirt?

      This kit's awesome, travel sized, needles galore, and behold, a solid pair of scissors. Kit comes with some twine and string to get you started, and some buttons to boot. If you want a nice portable kit to mend your clothing and gear you can't go wrong with this piece of kit.

      Works Like Grandma's Old Washbasin

      Tailoring work shirts + Serbwave = Maximum Kino Achievable with this kit.

      I was easily able to close the sleeves of some of my shirts up. I will be the first to admit, I know absolutely jack shit about sewing anything. Just put on some music and get into that rhythm, kill an hour or two and make your clothes fit better than the other guy's.

      Comes with everything you need, and nothing you don't. Use the thick wool-feeling stuff that's packed flat to store your needles, the weird pseudo-tape thing doesn't cut it.

      Very useful

      This kits is amazing, I was able to sew back on several buttons to my coats and even patch old work shirts.

      It has a very strong variety of needles and a variety of thread that are good colors for just about any surplus clothing you can buy.
