    If you are interested in trading or selling one, shoot me a line please! Something about that camo just looks really futuristic and cool.

    They were made in Sweden by Saab Barracuda for the Canadian Army. I think Saab has a contract to make vehicle / individual netting and other materials for the US as well.

    Interesting piece! The Swedish military actually has a winter camouflage uniform very similar to this pattern. Perhaps there's a correlation somewhere?

    Here is my Cadpat temperate woodland screen net. It is not SAAB Barracuda though. I also fixed the first photo but it still shows it sideways sorry about that.

    I don't know what the scale of issue is now, but 15 years ago each soldier was issued one temperate screen for personal camouflage. The white ones were never formally issued in my unit, but rather, a bunch were handed out once to whoever wanted one. I still have my white one in the plastic wrapper. The temperate one had to be turned in.
