NBC = Nuclear, Biological, Chemical. This is the protective over-suit issued by the British Army for use in hazardous environments. The trousers and smock are charcoal lined so will require washing before use as the lining may rub off on clothes underneath.

Trousers features over-the-shoulder straps, 2 large pockets, velcro waist and ankles.
These are sold as a set comprising both trousers and smock which are separately vacuum-packed. At this price, they are truly outstanding value!

Protective fun!
I saw this and it instantly took me back to the scene in the old, 2 part, BBC drama, Bravo 2 Zero. In the scene a few lads are being issued with their NBC suits and the guy says "this ticket is a large condom with legs". I just had to have one!!! Once it was washed (to get rid of the charcoal lining) I put it on n just fell in love. Not really something that I'll have a practical use for but a great piece of kit for collectors or anyone just interested in British Military equipment. And for 3 quid, a true bargain! I just wish I hadn't taken mine out of the individual vacuum sealed packs!
Pros: Great size, Really Cool bit of kit, Warm, Cheap
Cons: Charcoal lining is a pain
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: Yes

Great value for money
Very cheap garments that i used as efficient thermals for camping. Surprisingly it was relaively waterproof when the rain came down although the carbon lining does leak everywhere when very wet. Have used for lining the loft with insulation also.
Pros: Hard wearing, Multi functional, Well priced, Extremely warm
Cons: Can be uncomfortable initially
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: Yes
