I just love all this stuff, it keeps me happy.
The military stuff can be expensive, especially the original DAK stuff but you can still pick up some original bits for not too much. I got a set of original wehrmacht tropical goggles last year for about £20 and a set of wehrmacht Binos for about £100 with the case. Hats and uniform parts change hands for silly money though so I stick to repros there.
The modern british stuff has been fairly cheap for the past few years while we had troops deployed in Afghanistan, but now they have been pulled out the development of new kit has slowed down and supplies of surplus gear are not so easy to come by all pushing up the cost of buying ex military kit. It can be frustrating too as some of the modern kit like body armour inserts for example is restricted, and not available to civilians, so for someone like me who loves to get all the details correct it can feel like something is always missing. Still great fun though, and sometimes you can even pick up some of the restricted items if you are in the right place at the right time

My wife’s an accountant for a company that sells a lot of military surplus stuff (from quite a few European countries, not just here in the States); and oddly enough, within the past year or so (though they carried the vests for years and years) they are now legally able to sell some of those inserts that used to be denied to civilians.
