CCCP M43 Gimnasterka shirt, heavily used

53.99 USD

Old Soviet Gimnasterka shirts, which soldiers had to enjoy through the latter part of the Great Patriotic War and long after that too! These seemed to be mainly 60's and 70's manufacture, but the model is still the classic M43. Not a very common sight these days. One-off lot!

Czech parka with liner, olive green, surplus

Czech parka with liner, olive green, surplus

27.99 USD

The Czech response to those bitter East-European winters; this is a modular winter jacket with a shell layer, hood, thick liner and the essential fur collar. Thanks to the design, it works well in warmer weather too. It's even a pretty good looking parka considering its origin.

British ballistic pelvic protector, MTP, surplus

British ballistic pelvic protector, MTP, surplus

54.99 USD

British army groin protectors of the modern era - these hide your junk behind soft protective materials and MTP camouflage, and are pretty horrible to wear. That's probably why you don't see many of them in actual use. Fits on the British body armour or any belt-like thingie.

Serbian M93 parka w/ liner vest, surplus

Serbian M93 parka w/ liner vest, surplus

18.99 USD

Why go with the usual Woodland or olive drab when you can have Serbian camouflage! These parkas seemed to be made mostly in the 2000's according to the tags, so they missed out the Balkan folk festival of the 90's. The best thing probably is that these are dirt cheap!

Magpul QD Sling Swivel

Magpul QD Sling Swivel

20.99 USD

Push-button quick-detach sling swivel for 1-1/4" webbing, compatible with QD sling attachment points. Manganese-phosphate finished steel. This is basic stuff on a modern self-loading rifle. Compared to traditional sling swivels this allows the webbing to un-rotate in case it twisted a bit when you threw the sling over your head. Also being able to quickly detach from your rifle might be important in some situations.

FinnProtec POL-89 RG gloves, cut resistant

39.99 USD

Cut resistant gloves made for professional use. Durable and comfortable. Level 5 cut protection.

The Czech helmet is modeled directly after the Soviet SSh40, but with different lining. The chinstrap is either nylon or leather, depends on when the pot is made. All of these are old Cold War surplus.

A very standard looking East Bloc helmet, the Czech pot is a cheap alternative for the more pricey Soviet SSh40. You want a cheap steel helmet, buy this one. We get these with a three-point nylon chinstrap complex or a very traditional leather two-point system. Lately the leather ones have been way more common, which is good because they look better.

Czech army surplus

In used condition, and sometimes not very pretty either - prepare to clean it up a bit. Not sold for any real protective purposes of course, only as a collectible/costume item.

I received the leather liner version. Good for display, not so much for re-enacting as you may get one that won't fit.

The liner I received was very tiny. The adjustment is thoroughly seized, but I'll update if I can ever get it to move. Even still, there does not seem to be too much to move. I believe the liner is adjustable, but likely came in sizes, like 54-56, 57-59, etc.

The leather is VERY dry. Neats foot oil is a must.

Update: There are 3 snaps/buttons at the back of the liner to connect the leather to the liner band as you expand it. I now see mine is at its widest (and still stuck there) and it measures at 56. There is an ink stamp in the shell that reads 54. At first I thought it was a date stamp, but now I think it means its a small 54 (expandable to 56) liner.

As mentioned above the leather chinstrap is very dry but almost a perfect fit for my 55cm noggin, once I've figured out how to adjust it should fit nicely.

Like the other couple of steel lids I have it's surprisingly light to wear, especially compared to modern ballistic nylon/kevlar helmets.

For the price you can't go far wrong especially if you have a small head.

To get a bigger size, all you need to do is ask. At 57 cm, I asked in the comments when I was ordering that I wanted a bigger size so I could wear it. They sent me one that has a 58 stamped inside, and after loosening the liner slightly it fits perfectly. The wear on the helmet is exactly how much I wanted. Quite a few minor scratches but it still looks great. The leather liner was in amazing shape. This is probably the happiest I've been from an item I ordered from Varusteleka.
