Ah! Now the side loops found a meaning too.

I wonder if the canteen was actually carried that way. It's not very handy unless you are on a break. Or maybe it belongs to the soldier behind you :)

Something on-topic... :)

Are there any written documents about '50-'70 loadouts, like Der Reibert from that time? They might have interesting details in them, even if they aren't the real...

Old-style chest rig

What do you need for the older olive chest rig?

I think there's the belt (5 cm wide), suspenders, 2 mag pouches (on belt with loops, to suspenders with clips), backpack (to suspenders with clips,...

That might be pretty accurate. Don't use it on t-shirts and such though. BW t-shirt size 5 is XS or S (zip neck polo shirt size 6 is 42 in some other scale). I had to get a size 8 and I have a...

My best guess is that they use the normal BW size chart. I have a slightly older uniform jacket and comparing it to the size charts it matches the old BW size. You can find plenty of size charts...

I found this on a flecktarn shirt my friend had bought. It looked like a fake thing but seeing that there's been US para badges in the BW it might be real. How common are they?

Thank you for the tips. Sewing might be the best way, like Gordon Craig said. Of course having the correct boards would be even better.

Unfortunately, I'm tired of sewing for a while and I think...
