Yes it is John, maybe the most intriguing feature is the exposed collar of the Heer wrap protruding from the anorak.

Hello, I agree. A set of pouches would top it off. Best, Bill

Exceptional photo...
...these guys had exceptional taste in uniforms and equipment too, ( don't tell me chap in the middle has side laced boots on ? ) has the look of a " special forces" unit on a training exercise...

Yes, I think both the two soldiers on the center and the right are both wearing Heer wraps. These men are probably not Fallschirmjager in spite of the helmets, my guess would be Ski Jagers, who also wore these helmets. They also wore wrappers, these men might be from a Panzerjager Abteilung, that would explain the skull tabs. Ski Jagers were also issued Stg.44s.
