Up close, you can see the squares within the fabric but it's not the cheap cotton ripstop; still has the twill fabric feel of new CS95 type clothing. All velcro fixtures are black. Buttons are green Canadian style with black tape. The tag is merely a hand-written "180/104". "DES 2" is hand-written in permanent marker underneath the tag.
So far I've seen 4 different types of labels:
1. Form style label with hand written information. Refers to the pattern as "Track" (similar to US camo trials in 2002)
2. Generic "PECOC" label without any secondary variant identifier.
3. "PECOC" with a sequential designation starting with "CD". I've seen it expressed as a 3 digit code (e.g. "CD2") but also as a 4 digit code (e.g. "CD06")
4. "PECOC" with two sub designations. One is "Stage", which refers to a step within the larger trials process, and "Option", which refers to a specific variant being tested for that step.
And with Ben's comments a 5th type:
5. "PECOC" label (don't know what type) with hand written designation on it. So far we've seen two of the 3 color desert (brown) ones expressed as "DES" and a number. Those two are DES 2 and DES 5.
If you guys can search through your labels to see if you have other types or variations, that would be great. At some point we should try to nail down the range of DES, CD, Track, and Stage/Option designations.
