From the old stocks of the dead and partially buried DDR comes this rubber overall. If nothing else, the East Germans surely were the masters of nasty rubber!

For those who know German, the coverall could best be described as "Geschöpf" when worn. The SBA-1 is on par with the green PVC atom cape in indecency, but definitely offers good protection from all things wet. When laid flat on the ground it looks like a dried frog-human, but with a person inside the looks are more like a bog-monster. We have yet to see a more outrageous piece of kit from any armed forces anywhere.

The coverall is rolled and tucked inside a carrying bag, which is then attached to the webbing. As if the NVA webbing isn't shitty enough to carry as it is, with the addition of this surprisingly heavy rubber sack it becomes a nightmare. In the product pictures you'll see the roll attached incorrectly to the webbing, because we want things to suck more.

Sizing

We guarantee that if your normal size is about Medium, this will fit. If you're bigger than this, you'll probaby just walk into a wall of fists the moment you step out of your front door.

Unissued wonders of the DDR

These are unissued, but due to rubber and DDR, will undoubtedly smell, look and feel nasty. These are fairly well preserved thanks to talcum powder, so you can expect these to be in one piece and serviceable condition.

I ordered one a week or 2 ago, they (accidentally?) sent me SBA2 NBC suit, which is a whole another product that sold out months ago, it was huge but did fit me, awkwardly.

I don't know about this one for sure, but my SBA2 has a disgusting rubbery death smell, it has literally made me gag and puke for many times (don't hang it in the room you sleep in, i speak from experience). Comfy as fuck but the amount of sweat is very annoying, things like nails penetrate (no shit) but its quite durable.

Definetly exactly as described. The one I received shows signs of use, but most likely training (I hope). Has a big NVA stamp inside the suit. A cool piece of Cold War history, and for such a ridiculously low pricehow could you NOT pick this up?
