Regular price£125.00 GBP

The N.B.C (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) protective suit or 'Chemical Suit' was designed to provide protection against Nuclear, Biological and Chemical threats for troops in combat. To provide this, the suits were lined with charcoal, with the shell constructed from modacrylic and nylon and designed to be worn over uniform, giving protection for up to 24 hours.
This is a Mk.2 edition of the British Army N.B.C Suit, recognisable by it green and grey panels that would later be replaced by DPM camo. The Mk.2 was seen as an advancement from the Mk.1 as it was fitted with a drawstring hood, which allowed a secure fit around the respirator masks that would be worn alongside the suit. This particular DPM suit is dated from 1972 via the production labels and is in unworn deadstock condition.
* Warning - Charcoal lining may rub off on clothes worn under; we believe once the jacket has been washed a couple times the charcoal comes off and won't rub on clothes any longer.
These are in unworn deadstock condition and include original issue tags and storage bags. Freshly steamed and ready for a new owner.
