 An icon in surplus-wear, this is the British Desert DPM Windproof smock. Like the US Military's M81 Woodland camo, British DPM had a very long service history in many military organizations around the world, particularly in countries that were formerly British colonies.

DPM can be traced all the way back to the hand painted Denison smock used by British commandos in the 1940s. Early patterns continued to be used for some field uniforms until it was more widely adopted in 1968. Until 2016, DPM was the standard camo pattern used by the British Armed Forces, and is still the issued pattern in many countries. And this time around we got our hands on a some Desert DPM variants.

Desert DPM originally consisted of subdued sand and khaki hues when it was first developed in the late 1980's. However, some rather intrepid Middle Eastern countries figured that the original four toned desert pattern worked pretty darn well. Thus the British had to replace the sand and khaki hues with a light brown on sand derivative. Something to do with a Storm in the Desert

The Desert DPM Windproof Smock is an excellent example of a quality over-layer that is basically load bearing. Its large chest pockets allow you to store everything from IFAKs to magazines, MRE’s, and a whole lot more. Add in your preferred belt kit and you're ready to ruck in almost any condition. Perfect for any “hiking” you might be doing in the Helmand Province, (Lord Miles, represent). 

The adjustable waist and hem of the smock let you seal out any wind incursions from below, and with a wire-reinforced adjustable hood you can keep your tactical awareness while keeping your bussin fr fr no cap hairstyle safe and protected. Especially since the hoods are oversized to fit large unshapely Bri’ish helmets. If you paid attention in science class, note that these windproof smocks aren’t necessarily rain-resistant. But a quick trip to the local sporting goods store for some rattle can waterproofing could fix that in a jiffy.

Got Pockets?

I could fit the entire collection of my local libraries' inventory in the pockets of this jacket. Thank you Kommando Store, I now look drippy as an international public library book thief. Also, keeps out the wind and is water resistant.

SMOCK IS HUGE

Most UK stuff I've found is really short and tight, they're smocks are MASSIVE. No parka or jacket I've seen has been this large compared to the sizing. I got a little larger because I was worried about it being tiny, I was wrong. Smocks are thick, hoods can be rolled up and they stay out of the way. I feel very secure wearing it. I will buy just about anything in desert DPM, and it's nice to find stuff that's actually good.

Came with surprise unit patches

Overall very nice condition and came with unit patches sewn on. There was a slight tear in the fabric of the sleeve due to what I assume was a rank patch that got torn off. You can kind of see it in the picture I've included above the ISAF patch but it's so minor that it's no big deal. Other than that, the only other thing that's wrong with the jacket is that the patch sewn on top of the sleeve pocket prevents it from being opened. Though that was all done before it became surplus and patch itself is cool enough that I wouldn't ding kommando store for that.
