Ladies and gentlemen,

please forgive if his has been discussed on this forum before. Can any of you comment on these pattern 33 "straight zip" flying gauntlets offered here?

http://www.wholesalepages.co.uk/ukdistributors/RAF_1933_Pattern_Straight_Zip_-distribute-105129-306.html

There is currently a pair of these (or other) repros being offered on ebay for 200USD "buy now"... Claiming the originals would go for 400...

Maybe we want to find a reasonable amount of people interested here to realize a wholesale deal. E.g. a friend of mine here in Happy Valley is an "approved dealer" for fashion/clothing.

In any case, I'd be interested to hear what knowledge you might have of these or other repros in general. Repro vs original on this particular item of equipment (cost, availabiliy, usability for reenactment etc)

Thanks in advance,

Thies
