CCCP KZS camouflage jacket, surplus
The KZS camouflage suit was an iconic piece of the Soviet war in Afghanistan. Originally designed as a simple, single-use oversuit for wear on top of NBC protective gear the KZS quickly became a favourite among the troops stationed in Afghanistan due to it's super breathable construction.
KZS takes simplicity to a whole new level, even by Russian standards. The jacket is a simple hooded, pocketless thing with buttons on the front. Sleeve length can be adjusted by rolling them and buttoning them up.
The most "special" thing about the KZS is the loosely wowen burlap-like fabric. Extremely breathable and works well for the intended purpose of camouflage, but that's about it. This stuff is not wind nor waterproof to any extent, and neither does it need to be. The fabric makes the KZS a good base for DIY ghillie camouflage suits!
The camouflage print colours vary a lot, as can be seen in the photos. A single garment can be - and usually is made up from different colour fabrics. This is actually quite cool!
In Soviet Russia clothes wear you, for real. These exist in sizes 1, 2 and 3. 1 for small people, 2 for regular sized people and 3 for big people. That's it.
Unissued military surplus
These jackets have never been issued for use, instead they have spent decades on some shelf in some godforsaken warehouse somewhere. The condition is naturally very good with no wear or tear, just some stains and dust from prolonged storage.
