Drillichanzug tunic

Post by Dreckmann »

My group is looking for a good repro of the green drillichanzug tunic. We have been searching on the internet and we have seen the one from panther store, which is the one we prefer, and the one from hiki, that is cheaper. How about the hiki's one?
Regards

People will tell you that the Hiki ones have 101 imperfections - but if you want a cheap tunic to work in, to sweat in, to crawl through the mud in, and to generally treat like a soldier would have treated it (i.e. not worried overly much about the cost of replacing it), then you can't go wrong with them. I have used one for years, and they are perfect for rough-out use. They also fade and lighten nicely with prolonged UV exposure, to give you that proper field-worn look.

Finishing is sometimes a bit rough - especially loose threads around the button holes - but otherwise they are very decent.

The Hiki ones are indeed " serviceable " . The Panther store quality is second to none however , I have an early war off white one from them , it's exceptional , like an original . Buy the best .

Panther's Drillich is top notch! I can also recommend the drillich uniforms from Pirschen/Antz - they are of comparable quality as Panther, but hard to get hold of today.
If you want it cheaper - the new generation Drillich from Sturm is not bad at all...
Do not buy Hiki or the other cheap Asian stuff.

Panther! I have the trousers and they are marvelous! They did shrink with the first wash, so make sure you order a few centimeters longer. The material is really robust, not the t-shirt quality you get from china. I wear them in normal life and love them.
