View Full Version : SAS/SBS Smocks....The real ones.

28th Nov 2006, 17:03

Would like to know where on earth I can buy a "GENUINE" SAS/SBS Smock.

There are many out there that claim to be genuine, authentic, or the real deal. Especially on Ebay.

But does anybody know where "Original, Original" smocks are sold. Money is not an issue, I just want an original, issued item.

If you think I'm crackers, you are probably right.

I could tell you where to get one from, but then I'd have to kill you (and maybe eat you)

Aberventure (near Hereford/Welsh border) sell lots of surplus stock in the UK. They often sell via Ebay-UK. Genuine stuff.

I've got a nice camo outfit, winter issue, jacket, trousers, liners, everything. Where is it, no idea.
'My darling beloved, where have you tidied my frigging camo gear.'
Darling dearest: 'That smelly stuff, try the cupboard.'
It's not smelly and it's nice and cosy and it's not in the cupboard.
I used to have a full overall thing in DPM, that vanished too.
I'd love an SAS smock.
Keep us informed.

Not sure what a "GENUINE" SAS/SBS Smockwould be, exactly. As far as I'm aware, the DoD doesn't manufacture a special smock just for them. You'd probably find they just buy their own kit from whomever produces the best gear in the right colours...... That's what SF seems to be all about these days, looking gucci in kit no one else has. Oh, and killing people...

Unless you're referring to a para smock?

Beware of spending your hard-earneds on anything which is advertised as "genuine SAS"....:rolleyes:

The one on Ozzy's link is an Windproof Arctic Smock, nice bit of kit that every bootneck gets to go to Norway with, and readily available in the surplus shops.

Speaking of SAS/SBS, apparently if you wanna join the Marines' show, you've got to go through the SAS selection course, followed by the SBS's own fun and games.....

Seems it's harder to get into the SBS, they reckon your average SAS trooper is something of a ponce in fact..... :uhoh:

Especially if they need their own special smocks...?? :hmm:

Been a while but Capt Queeg's comment was correct in my day, pay wasn't great and you spent most of it buying kit that would keep you warm & dry (military hadn't heard of Gortex at the time... or they had and were aware of the price of it.) Luckily the "dress" regulations were flexible if you were in the right unit.

Why would anyone want the std issue kit? size 1, 2 or 3. (too small, small or huge...)

Here's an example of an SAS uniform that shouldn't be too difficult to get. (http://uniformfreak.com/1sascommuter.html)

sizing might be an issue though

Ontario This sitehttp://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=51579/highlight=49para.html might be able to give you a source. 49 Para is extremely good stuff for Walts.
