Looks great. I love how you use the suspender.
JGSDF often uses suspender for their training exersize.

As for the BDU, if you can read Japanese, you can also get a nice one from this website,
http://militarysoldier.shop-pro.jp/?...=776183&csid=1

Some of them are made out of 65% polyester and 35% cotton.
However they made it in a way it is waterproof on the outside and sweat absorbant in the inside. Not to mention, even when comparing cloths that uses the same materials, this cloth is specifically designed to dry 6-8 times faster than usual so if you sweat a lot, this may be ideal BDU for you.

Thanks very much for the link!!!!!!!, fortunately I read Japanese!

JGSDF use suspenders in operative theatres too
for example Somalia (anti-piracy mission) and UN mission in the Golan Heights

JGSDF used a new kind of frag vest in Iraq, but that vest it is not a real molle system... pals are spaced of 1cm to better accept the whole set of Alice pouches...

Ma be in future... they will receive a full molle set...

I found a very nice book on Amazon.jp

Px Saitoh make many repros... 65/35; 100 poly; 20/80;
waterproof or flame retardant or flax for hot weather;

Chinese repros are 100% poly... very poor poly
Sandgraf are 100% poly

but..original issue items are differents from repros

Find issued items in new conditions is very difficult... You need a friend in JSDF and he will ship to You items with the issue tag unstitched

More easy find used issued items on ebay from a Thailandese collector

The Type 2 uniform is made with more cotton, the Type 3 uniform is made with more poly... the uniform made for Iraq peacekeeping mission is made by flax, ripstop and it has some rear openings protected by a camouflage grid (the repro has a black grid)

I have my cousin in Japan so he can send me the gears
As for the authentic stuff, I have a relative who is in JGSDF.
Wonder if he could ship the real stuff for me
