  • Shirt, Sleeping Man's, Nylon TriAcetate OG-106. Commonly referred to as a sleep shirt or "jungle sweater" this knit pull overs are perfect to add warmth by wearing under a jungle coat. We have a small lot in VG+ to EXC- used condition. They are free from damage and are not worn thin (as many are). We have checked them over and I do not see any holes or real damage, just some light wear. Late 1960's dated, we only have size SMALL at this time. Learn More

  • We have an excellent reproduction of the famed Okinawa Boots available. These boots are made in Portugal by Pike Brothers of Germany and are a faithful recreation of the originals. Before now there has not been a good option for these boots. Originals are near impossible to find and sell at $800 when you do find them, so at that point you do not want to wear them. The Oki Boots repro years ago vanished and there are some terrible Chinese reproductions floating around that use original photos to lure you in and then sell you something that looks like it was made in kindergarten fashion class. These are made on a traditional "regular" width last, so order your regular boot size if you are whole size (unless you have wide feet you may need to bump up). If you are a half size, order the next size up. Please note these are made in European sizes (42 = 8R, 43 = 9R, 44 = 10R, 45 = 11R, 46 = 12R) and the sizes are on the box are correct, BUT underneath the buckle cuff (where it cannot be seen) the manufacturer was off by one shoe size on the marking, so for example an American 12R will be marked 13R. Don't panic, it is still a 46 / American 12R. Due to cost, we only brought in a few pair to try out in a sizes 8 through 12. Size 13 are available from the manufacturer and if we hear from people that is something they want, we can bring them in. Delivery time is about 3 days to us from Germany when we place a large order for boots. So if you need a 13 let us know you would be interested and we can expand the sizes we carry. For background, the Okinawa were made in the 1950's and are the US Army's first attempt at a modern jungle boot. The boots are basically WWII Double Buckle boots that have been redesigned with canvas parts for tropical climates. The lug soles were still stitched to the body of the boot so they could be replaced vs the later use a vulcanization process. The boots are often seen worn by early advisers who departed for Vietnam from Okinawa, hence the name. Learn More

  • OD Nylon M-1 Rifle Sling. As used on the M-14 and M-16 rifles. These were designed in the late 60's to replace the cotton slings for use in a jungle environment as the nylon is more resistant to rotting. The vintage nylon slings are smooth like a seat belt vs being rough like the cotton weave. We have a small lot available in excellent used condition. There is a little oxidation on the buckles, but it will clean up easily. These have become much harder to find over the years! Learn More

New means no holes!), they are the "correct style." We do not have the four end poles to hold the net up, but they are out there or you can tie the corners up. 1lb 12oz Learn More
