Whats your opinion on the Spearhead-Militaria P-37 Para trousers? Hows the quality? $75 beats the crap out of the $130 that WhatpriceGlory is charging.

I don't know about the P-37 Para trousers but I've purchased two uniforms from them myself and and I know another 2 our guys bought their uniforms from them as well and have had no problems.

Well, I just ordered a pair of the Para pants. They should arrive before the July 5th Event, or so I'm hoping.

Thats just the photo i assume, or the computer moniter. They are very close to the original BDU jacket I have, which may be faded. They are ever so slightly browner. Definetly not too green. I'd say it is about perfect.

You can have a look at them on Saturday. No touchie-feelie though; I will be wearing them. This especially applies to Mr. Shiney...

Another question Alec, what is the lining material on the thigh pocket? Is it chamois or denim?

The pocket lining on mine is Chamois. Bad idea, as History has now proven, but it looks and feels great. Very well done.

Spearhead is cheaper. Seams will need reenforcing; but for the price they are great. You get the dagger pocket for your FS knife, and you get the leather lined pocket.

Bloody hell $75? That must be like 50? That's the price I'm buying mine off my sarge for a second-hand pair! That's remarkably cheap! Will have to look into that.

Just keep in mind the shipping cost as well.
