Our Waffen SS HBT stug wrap in reed green is popular  among  re-enactors to man assault  guns and  vehicles.  But it  was  actually   very  rare and  most  commonly  issued  to reconnaissance  units as a  protective uniform  to wear over  the black wool panzer  wrap. Because  of  the heat  it  was often worn as a stand alone  jacket.

Directive 355. The  crews  of  armored  reconnaissance  cars will be  equipped  with a  reed  green drill protective suit(jacket  and trousers). The  cut and  style is  the  same  as the black field uniform) The protective suit can be used  as  camouflage over  the field uniform, as  a summer work uniform  without  the black field  blouse or  trousers, and to help preserve  the black  field uniform.

It was  basically the M36 panzer  pattern so a double breasted jacket of HBT denim fabric. The  fall collar  unlike  the panzer version had no piping but  the  shoulder boards we  believe  would  have had  a variety  of  colours, pink, red  and golden yellow  waffenfarbe . This later M36   pattern  enabled  the  wrap  to be button  up  and closed  at the top via a metal eyelet.

The  buttons  were mostly  grey plastic  but  horn buttons  can also be found. Collar  insignia  was   Runes  collar  tabs,  either  thread or  BeVo  versions.. The national  emblem(  eagle  and  swastika)  was  stitched  to the right  breast. This  was  the  woven or  BeVo variety. Black  wool SS shoulder boards (Schulterklappen)  complete the  jacket.There  were very  few  of  these  reed  green assault   wraps manufactured    during  the  war.    Most were phased out  late  1943.
