Sportsman's Guide has "wooly pullys" for twenty bucks.

With colder weather approaching, from the Trainer comes this tip on "Wooly Pully" availability at Sportsman's Guide. I always liked the reinforced elbows.

Those things have been impossible to find.

Helluva price. In cold weather, I like one of those under my M65 for a great outdoor jacket. Good for standing around a campfire too.

Why isn't your book commercially available for sale in any form today? Your continued tips on gear, etc. are interesting but are absolutely NOT unique. There is no shortage of people who are willing to sell gear. None. Your unique contribution is in your book.

Just do it. Birth it now. It will never be technically perfect.

Do not let the gear drive the plot. Make the plot drive the gear.

Can I have it now, please? Warts are ok. I can even wear protection while I handle it, if medically necessary.

I say Guv'na, that will look absolutely fab with my Sten. But a bit of a itchy witchy wooly pully, what.

They never have the XLs!!!!! They either must all get issued and taken home or nobody wears an XL at 20-25 years of age.

Thanks for the tip, but the last thing I need is another "too small in the neck and shoulders" sweater.

I've still got (one of) mine, more here - Jersey Heavy Wool.

These were standard issue in the USMC in the late seventies.

Don't know about now.
