Trousers Aircrew Combat Temperate Mk2B

These braced DPM trousers have integral knee pads and a multitude of pockets - mostly in places readily accessible to people who spend their lives sitting down, yet too small to accomodate anything remotely useful. Lower leg zips enable the trousers to be donned over boots. Worn infrequently by Army aircrew, as the tailoring was, quite literally, pants.
