The SADF Battle Jacket, an unknown Unicorn

I purchased this piece of kit not knowing the history behind it or what its uses were for. I merely came across it, thinking it looked really cool. I purchased it and then I waited until it came in stock and shipped. In the meantime, I started doing research. In doing so, I read forums and watched videos. From what I saw, some people were upset that this rig did not hold AK mags. Well, no disrespect, intended or implied, NO SHIT. This rig was not designed around the AK platform, it was designed around the Galil platform of weapon systems. So if you purchased this jacket, thinking that it would hold AK mags, and you are upset because it didn't, then that is on you. You don't buy OldGen USGI gear, thinking it can hold AK mags when clearly it was designed around the AR/M16 platform, so why should this be any different. Once the battle jacket arrived, I measured the straps and retrofitted the friction glides with 3/4" buckles. This easily turned the jacket into a quick disconnect doff system. I am really excited to get out and train with this rig, and have an understanding of what it was like to be involved in conflict while wearing it and carrying your life support in it. Thank you to Kommando Store for procuring these, and getting them out to us as quickly as possible.

Cool Jacket

What can I say It's a pattern 83 jacket straight from the SADF. It's cool (literally), light, and in excellent condition.

Bought like new

Basically brand new, unissued. Just the right hint of surplus storage smell.

Perfect amount of storage, versatile pouches. Also super comfy. Going to put some miles on it this summer in nevada.

Best. Jacket. Ever.

Not only is it incredibly stylish but it also holds all the items I need for long hikes in the mountains or patrols in the Desert . The best part is the history of the jacket and I can see who wore it last! Definitely a great buy !
