    Just picked up these DCU's today at the local flea market!! The guy had NO idea what he was selling other than they were camo uniforms lol. Says he got them from a storage unit he bought and he had more stuff. So maybe next weekend ill have MORE Smile let me know what you think. I got two of the first blouse and one of the second today.

    Second blouse... Whats the reasoning for the double strips of Velcro on the shoulder pockets? Ive only seen the full patch covering the whole pocket...

    Could be many different reasons, could have been low on velcro at the time, the operator prefered it like that for aestic reasons or other reasons. I know some people do velcro like that cuase it lowers the wieght a tad and makes it a bit easier to fold or roll up without the velcro bunching.

    Seal? I don't know but definitely Navy. The very similar modification is common practice for Navy SWCC (Riverine Squadron).

    Refer to this thread for more information. http://oefoif.forumotion.net/t1775-navy-riverine-squadron-dcu-grouping?highlight=riverine
