NBC Chemical Suit Rubber 2 Piece Military Surplus
Rubber is the ultimate material - keeps you alive in the case of a nuclear melt down, but also protects you from mundane things such as rain and thrown up Pilot Bread Crackers, radioactive or not. This package is unissued/ not used East German surplus. With that said, it doesn't necessarily make it serviceable if SHTF.
These suits have never seen use, and were most likely issued to every fighting member of the NVA. The suits come complete with a hooded jacket which has a snap front closure, and elastic wrists, hood, and waist.The trousers are overall stye with adjustable shoulder straps and integrated boots. The boots are built into the pants and have a reinforced hardened rubber bottoms for durability and traction.

They all come rolled up in a lovely rubber bag for carrying this in the field. Well actually the bag does look very 1956 and faded as it has been sitting in storage; the suit is in pristine condition. The suit seams are hermetically cemented as seen by the black substance.
'NVA' is stamped inside which we presume stands for the Nationale Volksarmee, the German Democratic Republic (East Germany army). There is a 1979 inside the jacket in which the model was wearing which could be the year in which is was made. The NVA was established in 1956 and disestablished in 1990. There is not much else known about this surplus item.
The tag says 'Humpie Dumpie USA inc' made in Germany. (It is a wonder why this company no longer exists...)
