    I guess this should be changed to : What are the nastiest looking camo patterns you have seen?

    LOL, that's because there's a lack of water buffaloes in Belgium!

    Some of those South East Asian countries certainly had some nasty, nasty patterns - love that Indo political party (AMPG) pattern, could blend into an opium induced haze quite easily indeed!

    And THIS is why camouflage designers should stay away from LSD, Mescaline, and Psilocybin. Remember....JUST SAY NO!!!!!!!

    Some of the floral patterns I've seen on old ladies are also as effective as new digicams, particularly in an urban environment!

    I thought the East German desert was hideous... Shocked Well, that Indonesian camo is hands down the winner for me.

    From what country did that water buffalo camo come from? I have a set of that Smile

    Really? I have never seen one for sale/trade. You're a lucky guy! It's from Benin, Africa I think.

    I meant the East German rain pattern and not desert, obviously they don't have one.

    I got the Benin set from a trade. Nice lion, water buffalo and paw print all over the uniform.

    Looks like the developer of the Indonesian camo was high on LSD at the time Laughing and so were the people who approved it Shocked

    There was a seller in Hong Kong selling the Benin stuff a while ago, along with lots of other oddball African uniforms produced in China. But that window of opportunity opened and closed rather quickly. I hesitated because I thought the supply would stay around for a while. I wish I had moved faster!

    well the combination of THIS camo and the haggardly loking model would make it nasty LOL



    ALoha camo anyone? (actual Cook Street store in Oahu, Hawai'i sold this shirt to me for like $5 or so...was one of my fave shirts to wear till the damn silverfish got to it...now my collection is safe due to the silverfish/moth killing spray)

    well, LINK due to eyebleach requirement for some....

    affraid a chainstore variation of the woodland, in thermals

    The water buffalo/lion cammo was made in China for a French company( Marck) who supplied it for game wardens in a former French colony. It is modelled on the 47/56 French para suits and it looks very fetching if worn to an anti hunt demonstration!
