the temperatures have become crazy here, 5°C last week, 14° now ! Goodbye the N-3B, hello the "Toko Ri thing" ^^
Photo ( Iteawon) taken a few hours ago.
N-3A and B-3 jacket weekend ahead
Looking good Tenfifteen ! My two favourite pastimes , motorbikes and vintage leather jackets.
Custom RMNZ m445a, 10 mm vintage sheepskin with veg tanned russet goat trim.
been quite temperate here in South Carolina so I dug out the M-1943 field jacket
Love the look of an M-43 the later jackets just don't have that classic look
No pictures, it did not happen!
No pics I'm afraid Steve but for me today was the Hartmann but the B10's been getting a good outing of late too!
Bloody freezing here, blowing a gale and no pictures as it was too cold to press the button on the camera. I completely piked out and went for the modern super high tech parka.
But hey we have the sun back here so proper sunlight, albeit a touch low on the horizon and then it buggers off after half an hour or so.

Can see you Tim out their for half/hour stripped to the pants in a deck chair with with 2 polished stainless steel sun reflectors, just like Radar from MASH 4077. Just enough for some Vitamin D.
It was a bit like that Matt! We spent the weekend up in the mountains at one of the family cottages/cabins. -17 ambient (wind was 18m/s so effective temp was -33ish) but absolutely beautiful and I was snug as a bug in a rug in thermals, fleece lined boots and a Canada Goose. The Norwegians have a saying, "Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlige klær - There's no bad weather, just bad clothing"
On the way up...
Yes, that's what they say when they are sitting on a beach in Spain...or visiting their mates in Southern Australia....
Beautiful place Tim, one day would like to visit.
If it's cold you can always do something to get warm, put clothes on, make a fire, have a sauna, make love to your significant other, etc.
But if it's really hot there's not so much you can do, sure crank the air con up, drink beer. I don't know how many times in Melbourne I sat outside in the garden in my undies with a beer when it was over 40C and still wished I could pull my skin off.
Matt, if you ever make it up here, it would be my pleasure to show you guys around.
Thanks Tim much appreciate your offer
I heard this on TV the other day and it really struck me.
Schott peacoat and submariner jumper (chase me sailor!)
