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.

      A Must Have

      Very simple with two nice size pockets for emergency textile patching. Such a little item that can make a big difference in any adventure that may go bad because of a ripped item that shelters you from the elements. Light weight but necessary.

      Came in slightly used but with lots of thread and needles also came in a cool looking carrying bag definitely a good purchase.
