It's like taps is trying to find the gayest brands on earth and collaborate with them as a joke. First Helly Hanson now Herschel. What a fucken joke.

In spite of tho, their actual main product is improving imo..

Stuff like the Frock pullover shell, Scout long sleeve and QB sweats. Also the techy hiking boots they did last year were actually decent and their caps actually fit lately. Too bad about that stupid fucking g-star tag though.

That's a great piece, I have it in black but it runs a little short on me. Your color is the best and I've had to pass on that color before because of the fit on me.

Also looks like the rubberised Technical logo is fully intact! Nice

Size Large?

haha, yep, always jealous of short dudes in regards to acquiring taps. Like 80% of uppers will just not fit me right.

Have needed this in Xray forever. They don't come up in any size very often. OD WT-ARCTICs are way rarer than blacks.

Never seen early ripstop DPM BDUs come up on yahoo before, only the '02 ones that are kinda goofy in the cut/pockets. Real nice and rare for sure, you should get em.

I had 3 DELTAs but hanging on to/taking good care of my last one until I can get a Goro's hunting bag (planned as my final bag), still wouldn't mind a BDUB, another Bergen Comp (sold my old one coz it was kinda trashed) and a big quilted tote.

This dudes selling a fake Bergen Comp on grailed for like $1K.

Could someone with an account flag it or comment or something?

The real has all metal clips, no plastic and a rounded metal ring at the top back of the bag, not an oval.

yeah I really like how he puts in unrelated OG snaps for seller cred.Roll Eyes I think that's prolly a sample or staff only with the oversized logo on the left chest.

It has an M65 collar but NBC jacket pocket? yeah anyway never really been into their non-nylon jackets.

In other grailed news I woulda paid the full $600 for these in the day, never ever seen xray limas of these early wool BDUs, just can't justify it these days:

Got the dpm cargos. they say "uparmed" on the tape that's on the right pocket not "uparmored"

Fake?
