    I only had a RMCJ one but years ago...but none of the other ones.
    To me the three listed above are all great... but I am no expert...Andrew and John lever are...
    Here in Korea and Japan, one can only find the RMCJ version but all in 38”-40” if lucky.... and they are always quite worn out.....and highly priced...arround..600-800Euro
    Rob from ELC mentioned on Wednesday that they have an AN-J-4 from Poughkeepsie coming in Oct. 2018...
    Lets wait & see.
    However, I love the Aero version as well as the GW one (GW.. if not waiting for 2 years :) )

    The ELC AN-J-4 is a well constructed garment and very accurate. Their Poughkeepsie version will be interesting to see in the Autumn. I can't comment on AN-J-4s from other makers as I have not handled them. John Lever should be able to help though.

    Wow... lucky you...
    Will order one as well...
    As far as I know Aero did even have a WW2 AN-J-4 contract.
