    This post was made after soemeone said that his previous post in photos and vidios was badly planted so he "copied" it here, just close your eyes for that abuse this time...

    becuz they realized later that there's little need to attach additional fur to the hood for more insulation?

    so yours could be a newer version, that is more suitable for desert climate. just my wild guess..

    The Army had them removed because they were restricting a soldiers view in a lot of situations. Affecting his/her situational awareness. I prefer the new version, that's what we were issued this last time. Affected a lot of peoples driving and what not....

    With all surplus different production runs can be slightly different, as a collector of British kit I know this happens often, so long as what you buy is what it was described to be it makkes little difference but for certain looks you have to ask your seller the right questions
