General military surplus offers a certain amount of protection from the harsh African weather conditions for outdoor enthusiasts

South Africans spend a lot of time outdoors, and fishing, hunting and hiking are popular outdoor pursuits. 

Although the South African climate is largely warm, sunny and mild, winters can be cold, especially during the early mornings and evenings. 

These are the best times of day to be outdoors for many as it’s when the best fishing happens, and an opportunity to witness a beautiful sunrise or sunset. 

Unfortunately, most South African retailers simply do not sell jackets and coats that can withstand freezing temperatures. Most jackets sold in malls are fast fashion items that don’t provide enough insulation and warmth. 

Here at General Military Surplus, we understand the need for top-quality clothing items that can provide enough warmth, while still allowing you to move around freely. 

Since military jackets, coats and parkas have been specially designed to keep the wearer warm, even in sub-zero temperatures, they are great if you are serious about keeping the cold at bay. 

What’s more, because these are outdoor fabrics, it also means that they are mostly waterproof fabrics to ensure protection against the elements.

So, if it starts to rain while you are enjoying the great outdoors, you don’t have to panic and can continue enjoying your time outside. 


Military surplus clothing: An old favourite that is finding renewed popularity

Military surplus clothing has been around for hundreds of years and its technology, fabrics and wearability improves all the time. 

Military clothing has to be breathable, as lightweight as possible and very comfortable to wear. It also needs to be of the very best quality so that it can last and withstand harsh conditions. 

It’s therefore surprising that civilians wearing military surplus goods have only become popular in recent years. 

Here at General Military Surplus, we have seen that the value of military surplus clothing has been increasing in recent years. This is due to its growing popularity as customers realise the quality and the fact that they are relatively inexpensive.
