Gascape (2016-09-19)
What can I say? The smell is so awful that my wife still complained when I had it hanging in the backyard for two weeks. But other than the smell it is a top-notch piece of kit and I highly recommend it.

British Gas Cape (2014-04-01)
Not identical in construction to the original - but originals were soaked in linseed oil and don't last long before the oil gravitates to the bottom of the garment (whether hung up or rolled) or they just go sticky. This item is a great compromise. I have replaced the press stud fasteners with original Newey poppers from WPG... Good item and great value. Stinks like hell. Air it in the garden!

UK gas cape (2013-12-15)
Great product. Nice construction. Usual fast delivery that you come to expect from WPG. Great people.

Does smell. Let it air out outside for awhile. However, it doesn't smell much worse than the original British waterproof items I have. It is truly a great item that looks and performs great. Waterproof. If you don't have one, you need to get one.

British Anti-Gas Cape (2013-02-24)
A superb reproduction in everyway. The quality and finish are excellent as usual for WPG kit.
Yes ok, it does have a smell to it, but nothing so terrible that i''d keep it outside though!
There is an art to wearing it correctly rolled up ready for use on top of the small pack.
Very pleased indeed, highly recommended.

UK Gas Cape (2010-05-20)
Was it really necessary to reproduce the smell too? I told my mate it was fastened right behind your head to make to make you march faster to get away from the smell. He replied "that's why the French wore theirs in the front". Great item, perfectly reproduced and super fast service.

early war gas cape (2010-03-12)
Great gas cape, but the smell is unbelievable, hanging it outside for a while does reduce the strength of the smell.
Very good reproduction, great quality and the usual fast delivery

Would Sir like parmesan with his cape???? (2009-10-16)
Oh man- such a great item and such a pong...my other half kicked it out of the house! She though the cat had dropped a parcel!!!!

Seriously great item though, very accurate. Would love to see a camouflaged version too!

This thing smells like nothing else. No need for a gas attack when you wear this thing!
But very well made and even better priced. Keep it up.

UK Gas Cape (2009-03-21)
I bought this to use as a rain coat. It should fit the bill nicely. As has been mentioned it smells but so did the originals. It airs out and is less annoting after a few days.

Gas Cape (2008-11-06)
Great item and smell.
Looks the best repro I have seen.

Thompson - UK
Oh yes smelly indeed! (2008-09-20)
Another very nice piece of WW2 British Army kit from WPG. It''s horribly styled (how did we manage to make such awful looking kit?!) and it smells even worse but all I care about is that it will keep me dry when I need it and there''s no doubt that it will do that without a problem.

Marc - United Kingdom

This is an excellent reproduction. Almost like the real ones, except younger...
Even has the same smell!
