As noted, the German police turtleneck sweater offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic German military surplus item. These sweaters were originally designed for and used by members of the feldjager, or the military police, of the German Bundeswehr, the unified armed forces of Germany. Because we cannot verify that these sweaters are unissued, we have to assume that they are used even though many of them appear to be brand new. As such, each sweater is in excellent condition and is free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that are characteristic of previously issued military surplus. In other words, these sweaters are far from the end of their service lives. Those looking for a warm turtleneck sweater that utilizes genuine virgin wool without paying a premium price need look no further than the German police turtleneck sweater.
The German police turtleneck sweater is constructed from a blend of virgin wool and acrylic fibers – a synthetic fiber known for its light weight and hypoallergenic nature. There is not much to say about it other than it is a turtleneck sweater with a fold-down turtleneck collar and elastic located in the cuffs and at the waistline that serves to keep wearers warm even when the wind is whipping.
The one unique aspect of the German police turtleneck sweater is the inclusion of a sizeable Velcro® pocket, which is located on the left breast. This pocket is adorned with a patch that reads POLIZEI, German for "police" and features the Rhine River on the left side and a white Westfalia horse on the right, both of which are underscored with the Rose of Lippe.
Whether you collect German military surplus or you are just looking for a cheap, high-quality turtleneck sweater, the German police turtleneck sweater is a great choice. Besides, where else will you find a virgin wool sweater for just $10.95?
