First post in the forum so here we go!

A few years ago the Norwegian military released a video named something like "Operation hostage rescue" that showed HJK/FSK (Hærens Jegerkommandoe/Forsvarets spesialkommandoe) and MJK (Marinejegerkommandoen)
conducting a training mission to rescue hostages.
Video link: https://youtu.be/fDacQQaRcK0

If you google MJK you find a lot of pictures from this video, of operators wearing navy/blue-ish uniform or possibly coveralls. I've researched a lot but have been unable to track down what type of jackets they are wearing. They are most likely meant for LEAF-use as they have velcro panels on the upper arms.

Anybody got a clue of what it could be? Nomex? They seem padded/insulated for warmth, or am I wrong?

In a bigger picture i've found in google, seem clear that these are coveralls. I don't know the model or brand.

My internett is shit where i am right now so i cant load your picture but MJK/FSK have been seen using the NFM boa overall and some snigel designs overalls that i remember. They are overalls i the video though.

Observe the sleeves of the top. They seem to be padded like a baseball jacket or some brands of down-jackets. Neither the BOA or the COBRA from NFM have these sleeves, evem though the arm pockets seem to match. The SnigelDesign one has separately coloured elbow areas, nothing that I've observed.

I think they're not insulated or padded, in the picture (i'll try to post) you can see that they are wearing their uniforms underneath, hence de effect. What really catches my attention, is the fact that the wrists are knitted, not really that practical in a nautical environment.

I've cropped the photo to show what i meant. Hope i have not missed anything to be persecd/opsecd

If I remember correctly the team wearing them in the video fastrope in directly to the target building. Knitted wrists are usually meant to prevent wind from coming up the sleeves of a jacket. Maybe it's not a nautical coverall but rather a wind-suit or something of that nature?

This is turning out to be a hard nut to bust! :lol:
