    No. Somebody might have purchased it privately, but it was more typical to see US issue woodland ones issued before the new capdat ones were phased in.

    The slide keeper on the chin cord appears on various CF-issue kit, but there are companies in Canada that make items like this for private purchase using some pieces of the official hardware.

    I haven't ever seen a photo of a Canadian wearing a solid green hat like this, and never in person either. I do recall seeing soldiers with the US issue woodland hats back during the days when the majority of soldiers were still wearing the old-school CF 'bush' cap.
