    Philippine Navy SEAL Tigerstripes Uniform (Sewingdale Version)

    PH SEAL

    Shirt was modified (Lower pockets moved to arm sleeves) by the operator. Operator also cross-trained with their US counterpart as visible from the US NAVY SEAL Trident badge on upper right chest.

    This distinctive TS was manufactured by a local company Sewingdale, Inc. in lightweight 100% cotton riptop. The workwmanship of this Battle Dress Attire (BDA) is quite good in terms of cut/style and uses military grade buttons. But this is no longer in production as the Armed Forces of the Philippines ceased business with Sewingdale, Inc. after the Philippine Army's poncho's controversy amogn others I believe. Naval Special Warfare though continued buying up to their last TS fabric inventory for supply only and had it tailored themselves.

    When the last inventory dried up, the NSW while tender for new suppliers were ongoing, temporarily adopted the current lightweight 100% cotton ripstop green dominant tigerstripes of the Phil. Army Special Forces Regiment (Airborne). With the new demand, some supplier printed on this TS fabric with "PN SWAG Uniform.." (SWAG being the old name of PH SEAL, an acronym for "Special Warfare Group". Quite a story for the name changed as well). Hence, it is not surprising if you find some Army SF TS set with 'PN SWAG Uniform.." markings which I think only found on the edges of these fabric rolls. In addition, for distinctive purposes and references, this temporary adaptation, we like to call it "Transitional NAVSOG Tigerstripes" or "Transition Tiger"

    Enjoy!

    CORRECTION: The Army Special Forces Regiment (SFR) lightweight cotton tigerstripes uniform is non-ripstop.
