Evaluation of reproduction field gear (for reenacting)?


Recommended Posts

I'm a WWII reenactor in the initial phases of working on a German impression. I've stumbled across a few relatively inexpensive items at a firm called IMA, and wanted to submit them to the collective wisdom of the experts here:

M-35 Helmet: http://www.ima-usa.com/product_info.php/cP...roducts_id/1542

Assault Frame: http://www.ima-usa.com/product_info.php/cP...roducts_id/1490

Pack for the a-frame: http://www.ima-usa.com/product_info.php/cP...roducts_id/1304

...any thoughts or opinions on the accuracy of this stuff?

Thanks,

--Chris

I am not a reenactor but I would always check with the reenactors I am doing the impressions with they sometime can be stickelers for what they want the guys to wear.

When I am missing a peice I sometime go to At the Front the have some resonable stuff and sometimes you can find a deal in their closeout or sale section.

You can also find some stuff for good prices here if you are a member.
