Russian "BTK" desert jacket, surplus
Today the Russian army is all fine and modern, and when you gaze upon these desert clothes, you instantly know why they drink so much. Now available a small batch of current issue Sovi-, agh, we always get it wrong, Russian stuff used today in Syria! Ugly as fuck! Wonderful!
The "BTK" series field jacket clearly has its heritage in the late Soviet era Afganka uniforms, which were actually quite modern. As is, this jacket is pretty practical with its zipper closure, large pockets and even has a stay-up mechanism in the sleeves. Now depending on the perspective of the viewer, these are either ruined or vastly improved with the pinkish scheme not unlike a pig's skin. No wonder, this is what the Russians call the uniform - 'piggy'.
Sizes in the good old GOST system: first the traditional Russian size numbers, with recommended user measurements in centimeters (height and chest).
Used and rarely washed, just like Russian stuff usually is. Because of the beautiful colour, any stains or dirt show up pretty well. These are however intact. Selling these to the civilian market is of course forbidden, but for the right amount of roubles an enterprising storeman could maybe lose them.
