    I am also a huge Danish fan Smile Rip, I have a set of the light weight type. Here's a reminder of the thread where we all put our heads together to try and figure out what is what:

    http://iacmc.forumotion.com/t10711-danish-uniform-designations-and-documentation

    It seems there's a lack of official nomenclature for this uniform, so I've labeled it "M/01 2nd Model Lightweight". As in the 2nd modification of the M/01 standard pattern, but in light weight non-ripstop cloth. I don't know why they fooled around with three types of cloth. Not that I'm complaining, because it's more Danish stuff to have Very Happy

    It really is amazing how well 3 colors worked on these types of Danish uniforms.

    Really had no idea that these non ripstop lightweight uniforms even existed.

    Always a good idea to share info..

    My guess was always that they are ment to be used as temperate/colder weather combat-pants.

    Until the push for a single, universal uniform there are a total of about 6 basic uniform types for European nations, but I don't think a single country ever used them all concurrently:

    1.  Desert (ripstop) - summer time
    2.  Desert (solid) - winter time
    3.  Temperate (ripstop) - general purpose
    4.  Temperate (solid) - general purpose
    5.  Tropical (solid, light weight) - warm weather areas
    6.  Tropical (ripstop) - warm weather areas

    Denmark uses 1, 4, 5, and 6.  Germany uses 2, 4, and 5.  Spain used 2 and 4 until the 2000s then it changed to 1 and 4 and now 1 and 3.  Hungary used 1, 2, and 4 for most of the ISAF time period... etc. etc. etc.

    Of the countries I can think of, Denmark is the only one that used 4 of the 6 uniforms concurrently, the rest 2 or 3.  The Danes like to be different Wink
