Zib militaria has since recently been making it's own tunics and helmets among others.
I have read a lot of positive things on their Zeltbahne, can someone tell me about the quality of their helmets and tunics?

I have just been told that zib has fixed this issue and that their tunics are of very good quality. Also noteworthy is that they are among the very few to produce M41 and M42 tunics.

Seems to be a few places with new (very light gray) tunics out at the moment.

How many actual manufacturers ?

I thought quite a few made M42 tunics. I've been selling them for years and just got rid of my last batch.

I was talking about European makers, or perhaps it's just me that I find them hard to find outside of Europe?

I'd be very surprised if anything was made in Europe.

The jackets have, from what I can see in the pictures, improved a lot since the first run. In a couple of generations they will properly in the top 5. But I would wait until then to buy any of them. :wink:

Which of the tunics they advertise are the old Ant-Z stock they were making noise about?
