    Italian "German" style snow camouflage uniform set

    I got this Italian reversible snow set sometime last year. I've been after one for a long time and was very pleased that it's in such fantastic condition. You can see it has official military tags in it. Consists of jacket, trousers, hood, pack cover, and bag.

    Have seen Alpini wearing that snow pattern.

    Always thought it was standard German issue, but this is clearly an Italian made uniform..

    Nice catch..

    Thanks! Yup, at first I thought it was just Alpini using some BW issued sets, but I found some close up pics which showed it was definitely not BW. However, until I got my set I wasn't entirely sure if it was commercial production used by Alpini or military issue.

    This pattern is called Aghi di pino (Pine needles) but i never understood official name.
    1995 is the oldest contract I've found , post contract have a different pack cover and helmet cover ,all  sets have a net for hook to cover face.
    70% of sets are sewn on the wrong side for this reason are used often reverse side.
    Now this camo are used until exhaustion, replaced by Vegetato artico Mod.2005.
