The Alpenflage Parka and Field Pants are a match made in heaven — a set of feature-rich (read: pocket-covered) gear built with swiss precision and quirky-ness.
In fall and early winter foliage, Alpenflage excels. It was designed to match the conditions of the swiss alps, so there's no better time of year to don it. Outside of it's function as camouflage, it's gained massive popularity in the secondhand surplus market since it became available in the 90s. In perhaps one of the biggest cults around a single pattern besides Flecktarn, Alpenflage is now a staple of countless surplus collections.
You're getting enough kit here to carry a serious load without wearing actual load bearing equipment. Basically anything you could stuff in one day pack you could instead distribute to the absurd amount of durable pockets and storage compartments on this set. And then you can add in more. Because you can. If you're a surplus collector or taking frequent trips innawoods I'm surprised your cursor hasn't already hovered over "add to cart". This one's a must.

The parka is available in two different sizes, but thanks to the elastic in the waist and hip the parka can fit a variety of users. For example, we've had the size large parka fit users with a chest size between 34"-40" without issue, and fit users with a height of 5' 5" to 6' 0" comfortably.
Sizing for the pants is the typical Waist/inseam system, both in native metric sizing (disgusting) in centimeters, and glorious translated Imperial inches. Also to note is the adjustability of the suspenders which allows the pants to ride as high (or as low) as you'd like them to, and the waist snaps and fly buttons which allow the pant waist to be tightened or loosened depending on the users waist size.
Model is 6' tall, with a 38" chest and a 34" waist. He wears a 46/80 size pant, and EU 52 size parka comfortably.

Perfect for fall larping. I also got one of the ones with face camo too
Bought this around Christmas 2021 but I haven’t made a review until now.
The jacket is pretty good. It’s hefty, and it kept me pretty warm even though the sleeves are short. The amount of pockets that are on this jacket is insane. Make sure your clothes hangers are strong enough, as I’ve had one snap under the weight of the jacket.
The pants are pretty nice too, but they’re not as good as the jacket. The fabric is thinner compared to the jacket, so your ass will freeze if you’re not wearing another layer. The suspenders are great; very simple to put on and pretty secure.
Overall, the suit is a great bang for your buck, with the insane amount of pockets. You are guaranteed to stand out. I’ve been questioned many times about this jacket when I wore this in the winter.
Dang this stuff is durable. I pair this with my pattern 83 chest rig and a 44magnum and feel the heavenly Laurels that the mil surp gods bewstow upon me.
