    4pc Swiss Army Cold War Era M70 Alpenflage Camouflage Uniform Set 

    I believe this Swiss Army Cold War era heavy combat uniform to be Kampfanzug 57/70 which was issued from 1957 to 1993 (after 1970 with a textile daypack).  The set consists of: Parka, Pants, Backpack, and Hat.  The hat appears new, while the other components are used, but in VG to Excellent shape.  I found one military ZIG-ZAG stitch repair under the right arm on the side of the parka, otherwise, I see no other damage on any of the pieces.  This uniform, by virtue of the day pack included with it, I would assume to be from the 1970 to 1993 period of issue, but I could easily be wrong.  I have never seen such an amazingly complex garment with so many pockets (and pockets within pockets), internal suspenders, wind proofing, buckles, drawstrings, elastic and “D”rings.  I took measurements because I am not sure how to decipher the Swiss sizing markings or if the garments were tailored. 

    Parka: It is stamped “48” on the inside and seems to compare to a Size 48 Short 
    Across the front of the chest when stretched flat; 23.75”  or approximately 48” chest. 
    Center of collar to end of sleeve cuff:  30.5” 
    Center of collar to tail hem: 27.5” 

    Pants:  Close to 36” x 27.5” 
    Waist measured from inside the waistband stretched flat: 18” or approximately 36” waist 
    Inseam:  27.5” 

    Hat: It is marked “M” “84/86”  It has an elastic built into the headband.
