great pics lads...just a question, i am interested in purchasing the gorka suit some Russian units wear, is the gorka suitable for use in cold and wet weather
How cold and how wet. Gorka is good up to -1 or -2C with warm layers underneath. It offers great wind protection though, as it was designed for the mountains.
It will get wet eventually under heavy rain, as it is no Goretex. On the plus side it is alot more durable than goretex stuff, to the point where it is almoast impossible to get material to tear (again, it was designed for moutaneering use). So if you combine gore-tex inner layer with Gorka, you won't be dissapointed.
Very comfortable gear, probably the best uniform set to come out of Russia.
