    This was given to me by someone who did not want it.Claimed it was used by his dad in the USAF.I doubt it though.It has a very strange mix of colors,like it was suppose to be used at night or in a swamp.The brown stripes are on the verge of purple.If anyone knows anything about it,I would like to know. alien

    HAHAHA...I have seen this phenomena before. Generally caused from washing something dark and non-colorfast with some somewhat faded camo. I know our woodland BDUs would turn a bluish color when washed with new jeans, the tan parts especially. The fabric will soak up the dye in the water, usually the tags will get a bit tinged too.

    I have seen several of the commercial tigers fully patched , I do not know for a fact if they were all real ,but most of them seem to be from the 80's to early 90's and are mostly associated with jungle training in Central and South America , so I am starting to lean in the direction of these being private purchase for Advisory work in said countries ,but I have no hard facts or pictures to back it up , I might have to do a little research and see if I can come up with something .

    "Color fast" means that the dyes used in the material won't 'come out in the wash'.

    Seems to be Narrow Tigerstripe Pattern with different colours.



    This is genuine Narrow Vietnam Tigerstripe.



    This is the usual post Vietnam War colorway of much darker colours.

    Thanks Grendel for the information.I do not think it was meant to be these colors.I still lean towards Cammobunkers colorfast dye job theory Laughing
