    Philippines National Police (PNP) Digital Camouflages

    Post by CollectinSteve on Sun Nov 07, 2010 6:17 pm

    I currently have three distinctly different PNP digital camouflage patterns. As far as I know, all three are legitimate issued items. The only commercial variation I know of is in a sort of ACU cut, which none of these three are.

    First are two similar patterns. But if you look closely, you will see that although their colors are nearly identical, the patterns are definitely not. The one on the right has a "dapple" effect that almost makes it look like Waffen SS Oakleaf in a few places. The cuts of both uniforms are identical. The third pattern uses different colors, different pattern (larger blocks), and a slightly different cut of uniform. In particular, look at the rounded collar vs. the other two's square collar.

    Any info on these would be appreciated.

    Steve

    Philip provided me with one several years ago and then another very recently. So yes, he is good Smile The dark one I purchased on eBay and know nothing about it.

    Sir,

    The dark one I haven't seen being used by the PNP-SAF recently, there are disapproved camo uniforms that are being sold by the tailors near the Police Camps here in Metro Manila. Mostly bought by airsoft players. Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks! The only reason why I thought this *might* be some sort of official issue is the rank and name tape are present. From my Philippines sources I gather that the government isn't too happy about these two items being sold to just anybody.

    Cool pics! Looking at the first picture Gilles posted you can see two distinct styles. The first is like mine, with lower pockets and straight up/down buttoned arm pockets. The guy on the right is wearing the same one Gilles has, which is basically US ACU style.

    We can also see my example on the left is the same camouflage is Gilles and the women in the first picture and the guy on the right in the second picture. It appears that the guy on the left in the second picture has the same camouflage pattern as my jacket on the right of my first picture.

    Also note that the women have velcro name and POLICE tapes as well as velcro rank center chest. The guy on the right of the second picture has sewn on name and POLICE tapes. Lastly, the ones pictured do not have velcro over their arm pockets like Gilles' and ACU cut, but rather they only have velcro backing (if any) where the badge is.

    So I guess I need some more variants for my collection Wink

    Krukspec started as local airsoft gear manufacturer. Eventually, made a name by itself significantly after they got the opportunity to outfit the movie "Street Fighters" production shoot in Thailand.
