    Doesn't mean I don't want it Very Happy

    Putting petty bickering aside (hehe), I think it's interesting that the pattern has changed. With so few clear pictures of this I didn't notice that another color was added and the other colors apparently swapped around. It would be interesting to see if the same pattern is being used, but with changes as to which colors applied to which shapes. And the earlier pattern perhaps simply had a color missing, as is what the Lithuanians did for their 1st Pattern Desert vs. their 2nd Pattern Desert.

    Looking at the pictures there is 2 versions , a 3 color and a 4 color , the 3 color looks like it was earlier .
    The pic shown earlier with the combat type shirt looks like the same pattern as my set .

    Is the cloth really heavy duty, or is it more-or-less standard weight ripstop? The Lithuanians used a heavier cloth for their earlier desert and the 1st Model Iraqi uniforms.

    FINALLY was able to find a set of the Lithuanian made Iraqi SF set. I know these were used by the Iraqi 36 Commando unit. This has been on my "grail" list for a long time.

    This set came from a USSF advisor.

    Congrats!  I had an earlier made jacket and a hat, both before most people knew what this pattern was.  Saw more recent trousers and got the snot beaten out of me when I tried to win it.  The later type has brighter colors from what I can tell.

    The cloth is the same odd type used by Lithuanian 1st and 2nd model Desert uniforms. Pretty much same colors as well.

    Thanks, sir. I have looked for this pattern for years and could never seem to find a set.

    I think your assessment about the brighter colored versions being later issue is spot on.

    A friend recently acquired 4 of these very cool uniforms.
    This one is in new conditions.

    I must say that the sizes are not true to the labels.
    Blouse is marked Medium Regular as are the trousers, but the blouse is more like an XL - L Reg. while the trousers are closer to Medium than to Large..

    I've seen a few of these up on eBay lately, including trousers on right now. All brand new. Guess someone scored big in Iraq!

    I think 2 sets sold on eBay and the trousers are still available.

    Another collector and me were offered the other 2 before the auction.


    Indeed they are brand new . I believe they came from a storage unit.
