    dyed DPM

    I stumbled across this cool photo of British soldiers wearing what appeared to be dyed desert DPM.



    Anybody has seen this before? It would be cool if somebody here actually has one!

    Interesting photo indeed. I saw this photo back last summer and was puzzled at first, then I realised what it was.

    Guess its dyed for "greener" areas of Afghanistan where DDPM isn't as conducive to the terrain. Resourcefulness and ingenuity at its finest!

    I haven't seen any on eBay or any other surplus sites, but I bet they're out there...only a matter of time until one turns up, I'm sure.
    But then you'll have to fight me for it. lol!

    I have seen a few dyed windproof and normal smocks but they were dyed black. I know however cos i have done this with the 1st issue desert DPM's, they dye black but after a few washes they go a little green'ish for some reason.

    I think these were guys from 2 Rifles, not everyone had dpm smocks for using in the green zone, they got a load of UBACS and had em dyed locally, came out a strange turquiose green colour but apparently it worked quite well.
