TAZ 83 "Alpenflage" is a Swiss variety of German Leibermuster. Some sources say that the Swiss obtained the pattern directly from WWII-era German uniform textile manufacturing lines from Czechoslovakia sometime postwar.

These field jackets were issued to combat troops of the Swiss army. After 1970 these uniforms were issued alongside a daypack that buckled onto the jacket itself, taking the place of traditional load bearing gear in use by other militaries at the time. The remainder of the combat loadout was stored in the jacket's TEN pockets. Yes, we said ten. See attached video for more uniform history.

Lovingly named the Vierfruchtpyama (four fruit pajamas) by Swiss troops, we think you'll find the Model 1957/70 Kampfanzug to be wanting in neither drip nor pockets.

Swiss military surplus is famously durable. Heavy fabric, heavy stitching. You can beat up Swiss surplus, it’s made to take lots of punishment.
