  • Will I get the exact item in the picture?

    No. While our photos are representative of what you will receive, due to the unique nature of military surplus and our extensive inventory we are unable to photograph every single individual product we carry.  The item you receive will be functionally similar to our photo, but there may be slight differences including different shading, markings, years, labels, or accessories.

  • Can I get a product with a specific manufacturer/year/marking etc?

    It never hurts to ask, but unless our listing states details, we cannot guarantee you will receive an item with the specifics you are looking for.  We will do our best within reason to help you out, but due to our high volume of orders we may be unable to accomodate special requests. 

  • What is Military Surplus Smell?

    If you have ever walked into a suplus store, worn an old military jacket, or bought older surplus, you know the smell. There are varying degrees of Military Surplus Smell, but it is generally noted as a musty storage smell. While it may be a shock at first to smell this, it's actually a great thing! 
    When you get that Military Surplus Smell, you know you're dealing with GENUINE military gear, and not imported or reproduction gear. It is one of the first things any surplus fan will check when determining the authenticity of their purchase. The smell may have imitators, but nothing can compare to the actual smell of genuine surplus. 
    There are many different ways to get rid of the smell including using vinegar washes, name brand cleaners, and air drying the gear after many washes. We don't recommend one method over another, but do caution that older surplus gear may be damaged by using an untested method. Be careful with your gear. Or better yet, embrace the smell and revel in the fact that you are rocking true-blue American made surplus! Hoo-ah!
