A Poor Mans L-2b ..... (which actually isn’t bad)

My Jinruishi L-2b arrived.

Didn’t know what to expect but went on the advice of @B-Man2...

Wow. Really impressed. The fit S is perfect the cuffs and stitching is good quality. What is difficult to get across is the feel of the nylon which feels really robust and strong density. The colour is an amazing midnight blue. I have never seen let alone felt a real L-2b but this feels like it could have been issued to a jet pilot. I was concerned because I could not afford BR and didn’t go with the Bronson( I ordered the Ma1 instead) and went with the unheard of Jinrushi. However really happy and will get the olive next pay day. Thankyou @B-man2

Man oh man .... I was sweating this:rolleyes:
You never know how someone is going to like something you recommended to them and I’m always afraid I might give a guy bad advise. I’m so very glad you like it . I can tell you I had a Buzz and for the money this one isn’t bad at all . Give it a try in chilly weather with a jumper under it and I think you’ll even like it more. It really does match an A2 for keeping the cold out . Great News!!:)

Burt, I contacted the seller about the correct pocket positioning. He was really positive and said the photos of the BR Ma-1/L-2b that I sent would help to correct. Jinrushi seem to be slightly lower than BR, what are your thoughts...?
They will be doing a new run of M-a1’s for winter...

I agree with you on the pocket positioning but I think if they are looking to upgrade the jacket, the first thing they should do is switch the zip to a right hand pull one. Other than those things, the jacket really is pretty nice for the money. The Buzz is better but that $450.00 price tag for what is essentially a nylon wind breaker is a no go for me.
