It doesnt look too bad. I think I paid 660 for mine but it didnt come with the chute bag. The reserve has lift-a-dot whereas mine has press-studs. Ben haven't you got one of these early type rigs?

It doesn't look too bad. There's no Griswold buckle (should be on the right shoulder strap). Coffee-stain harness is nice and right for an early war rig, but the static line hook is a post-war made example. The hooks on the back of the reserve are the post-war too, but the price isn't too bad. It looks a good repro!

Cheers,
Ben

You could easily (and relatively cheaply) put it right, but you'd need to know someone with a decent sewing machine really.
