    Check Loski's F1 pattern Lizard Caps post.

    I have 4 of them.  Have had them since the '80s.  Have also  seen Olive Green variants..

    Couldn't find it. Mind pointing me in the right direction?

    The fabric is similar to French HBT cotton, the pattern less so. I was thinking perhaps North Africa?

    Ah well, thought it might have been something a little more uncommon, as I got it with a Tunisian uniform.

    When I was a wee tot I used to wear one of these uniforms, and hats, playing paintball. That was late 1980s so they have been around for a LONG time! I've had several hats and uniforms come through my hands and the consistency of material, print, and sewing is amazing.
