Knowing a few simple stitches can save your life, and these high-quality '60s German sewing kits are here to help!


One of the most overlooked items a soldier will carry is their sewing kit: made for on the fly field repairs, they have everything you'd need to patch up nearly any uniform. When new gear is happily humming along supply lines, most soldiers just opt to replace broken gear and torn clothing. Especially in the era of "low intensity" conflicts, the humble sewing kit has fallen by the wayside.

 

But you? You won't always have the benefit of just "ordering another one."

 

The human animal is vulnerable to the elements. When we traded comfortable fur for sleek, hairless bodies to keep cool, it helped make us an apex predator—but it also left us incredibly fragile.

 

That's where your uniform comes in. Whether you're serving, training outdoors, or just want to enjoy a weekend hike, it's the second skin that shields you from the rest of the world. If you don't take care of it? You're not taking care of yourself.

 

Once you know what to look for, one of the biggest advantages of a sewing kit is preventative maintenance—a loose thread or poorly secured seam can be fixed before it becomes an even larger issue. Combined with a few YouTube tutorials, you'll find that you can dramatically stretch the functional lifespan of your clothing. These kits are dirt cheap, can save your clothes in a pinch, and are small enough to forget about when slipped inside a pack or snuck into a pocket. There's no reason not to add one to your stash today.

Condition

Lightly used—as mentioned above, while these were carried and may have seen some use, the current trend among personnel is to replace over repair, leaving these kits in great shape.

    Great Field Kit!

    It's an extremely good quality and compact kit and is certainly worth carrying for field repairs. Thankfully I haven't had to use it yet.

    I like.

    Bought to use as a sewing kit, works surprisingly well as a sewing kit. Stitched up my mechanix gloves, no more finger holes, I'd personally like to thank Ivan for helping be able to achieve this ty xoxo
