Default Surplus Nomex flight suits

Hi Folks,

This might be more interesting for those who have an engine behind them - surplus Dutch Air Force flight suits in a wide range of sizes, $65 shipped to the USA. They look like they have all the right pockets for glider flying. Have ordered one myself - I have bought from this online store before, and their stuff was good quality. And the advantage of it being Dutch stuff, if you are 6'6" they have one for you!

Jon

I notice they retained the convenient lower pockets used to hold the sheep's hind legs in a survival situation.
