    I've never seen a woodland CCU but I have a subdued factory made with velcro 2nd ID patch that has to have been for the woodland CCU.

    Unfortunately, seeing someone else's collection is a VERY rare thing as we tend to be geographically very spread out. I've only seen 2 other collections in person and have only had 2 others see mine (same 2, go figure Wink. I am still kicking myself for not getting down to see Bob Pitta's collection. I kept putting it off and we finally set a date, but he passed away before the date came up. His collection made mine seem like a "good start" collection. Lesson for everybody... if you have a chance to see someone else's collection, seize the opportunity. Getting together, in person, with a fellow collector nut is worth its weight in gold.

    There is a set of trousers up on eBay. Has been for years, actually, as the seller wants something like $250 for it. Too much money even for the crazy collector types.

    CCU was tested in 5 patterns as far as I know:

    • desert

    • woodland

    • scorpion

    • urban track

    • gray


    And here's a woodland CCU shirt:

    I agree on this 99%. It only "depends" whose collection it is *wink at Steve*. I've seen Leo Karlin of Texas and Aaron Chiong's of Singapore collection and you could see some patterns that you don't have up close. When I was at aaron's place we talked from 8pm till 12mn. Time flew so fast aaron went into a panic because the train service going back to my hotel closes at 12 so I had to take the taxi back. What a Face I hope to visit Steve Hoeger's and Cammo Man's collection soon...
