    Here are a few pictures taken at a Roadshow showing off the updated designs for some of our IP-DPM kit.Some of the items are already on issue such as the flame resistant UBACS and  long and short sleeve flame resistant t-shirts(not pictured), but most of the other items wont see first issues until sometime in 2018.All items are manufactured by Seyntex In Belgium.

    PS: Final trials of a new Combat boot in British MoD Brown colourway are ongoing. Haix Scout Model. Updates when i have them as to if they are going on general issue or not.

    So how much difference is there in the cam pattern from the older stuff? or is it just a new cut of the uniform?

    Very interesting, the angle of those leg cargo pockets are quite unique to say the least.
    How come some shirts have "Defence Forces Ireland" and some have the Gaelic "Óglaigh na hÉireann"?
    Is that a new feature as well?

    Yeah.I am convinced they got it arseways. IMHO the pockets should either be straight down or angled backwards.
    The 2010-2013 shirts had the Defence Forces Ireland Tab.The newer ones have the Gaelic wording.
    Then the DF decided to take back our official title in Gaelic which has been usurped by the lovely lads in the IRA for the last few decades.
    Political move that's all

    All very nice , of course. ;  glad the pattern is unchanged.

    Like Alex, I question the lack of chest pockets on the blouse .

     I understand that when a vest is worn, chest  pockets are basically unreachable, but in garrison pockets are essential.

    Perhaps a little money may be saved but I bet the end users may not be all that  happy about the lack of pockets. .
