However, we have to use the labels to provide a tracking system for the stock we have available. So the sizes we list will have some interesting additional letters and numbers for our purposes.
Here's a few examples with a brief overview to explain a few of them.
For example - 170/84 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
For example - GR7 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
For example - 96/100 i/ii = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 96cm waist
(i/ii = short, iii/iv = regular height, v/vi = tall and vii/viii = extra tall)
For example - 88C = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 88cm waist
(C refers to short, R is Regular, L is Long)
For example - 6080/7080 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
(The first four digit number i.e. 6080, refers to a height range of 1.80m to 1.90 metres tall. The second four digit number refers to the chest or waist size range, depending on the garment)
Other nations use a variety of random numbering methods where a number is allocated to represent a set height and chest/waist.
Therefore, you can see why we use the simplified method of measuring, and stating chest, waist, jacket drops etc to help you decide.
These heavyweight Multiple Terrain Pattern (MTP) combat British Army "Gore-Tex" trousers are genuine military surplus. They are made from waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex-like material that allows sweat to escape in the form of moisture vapour, while keeping out wind and rain. This makes them the ideal choice for British cadets, hunters, hikers and fisherman who wish to brave the elements.
These trousers should not be confused with the previous lightweight versions, they are tough and durable.
See our technical notes page regarding Gore-Tex.
Other features of these pants include:
Very important note on sizing – This item is designed to be worn as an over trouser, as a waterproof hard shell over jeans or work trousers. So they are a generous cut to allow for layering and movement. The sizes quoted are therefore listed for a wearer of the sizes quoted, wearing any under trousers, thermal etc and therefore the garment will actually have a waist measurement in excess of the sizes given.
