It doesnt flake and it looks and feels like something that will last a long time in all weather conditions. The suit fits perfectly just like my other Propper CWU Nomex flight suits. The upper part has the appearance of the N2B jacket. A huge plus that the edge of the hood with natural coyote fur, not white washcloth as contract N3B jackets. This Rucksack comes brand new, there is some minor assembly and strap tightening required, such as attachment of the two top shoulder harness adjustment straps to the frame.
I wont even dare to compare this top of the line flight suit to any other cheaper or economical flight suit available on the market. This jacket keeps the wind and rain, very warm and at the same time is easy enough. I think this jacket is better than N3B, Alpha Industries is the level of jackets the spiewak company. I found the instructions for connecting these straps to the top of the frame on You Tube. The price I paid for this pack, in brand new condition, was less than what all the other online vendors I researched, charged for their excellent condition grade.
In spite of that, buyers should order their correct head size, not a slightly larger size, as I did. i normally wear a 2xl but since they only had xl and it is an Anorak i was hoping it would have a loose fit.
i wasnt disappointed, fit is loose enough to get a layer of fleece under it and still move freely.
They're light weight, have good ancle support, they have drainers, and they mold to your feet very well. Needless to say, there aren't facilities and I don't want to pollute the pristine area by using the outdoors as a restroom.
These are really the only boots i would want to wear with my uniform. I have 10 acres in Montana on which I like to camp.
i take this with me everywhere i go and it is everything i hoped it would be.
overall, this is a great product and is well worth the price. [Given the costs and fees we have associated with selling on Amazon as opposed to on our own site, virtually EVERY item is cheaper on our website than on Amazon. I have a pair and they do seem to work with proper welted boots (soles), and I use my tele ski boots w/ duckbill OK.....
As far as the team of Mc Guire, they are top notch.
First I sent a message; it was answered in 15 minutes, then I ordered this system and it was delivered the next day. The patrol cap is of very good quality, but it isn't exactly like the the ones we wore in the early 60s in that its ear flaps are lined with polyfleece, not just plain cotton fabric. Just received this Anorak today, appears to be well made and the fabric should repel burrs and thorns well enough.
