Hi everyone,

I just had a question about where to order my uniform from.
ATF was my first choice, but then I saw WPG.
WPG's prices are cheaper, but I am wondering if the quality of their items is as well?
Can any of the experienced buyers tell me where to buy what from where? (For US Airborne Items)
Thanks a lot!

Either one is good. Both are good to deal with and both have good quality. So go with price and try to order what you want from the same place to save on shipping.

Has anyone ordered the collarless shirt from WPG?

I am just wondering if there are better quality versions out there, and if anyone has this and likes the quality.

I have one of these and only need one word to describe it.

It's supposed to be woollen fleece/flannel, so if it is itchy then it definitely shite material. I got mine from Replicaters and though the colour is a bit off, it's very comfortable.
