I have seen so many pleas and 'wanted'-messages from you on these tricky patterns and heard your frustrated camo cries after particular nasty eBay loose-outs, so it warms my heart you've bagged these beauties! Kudo's to you!
Are the Oz material government controlled since it is so insanely hard to come by?
Thanks Ronny, I'm excited to have it, for sure! Yes, due to my eclectic taste in camos, it tends to be frustrating sometimes when searching for the patterns I am after, especially when on a smaller budget than I've had in the past.
As Philip said, it's the price that makes the DPDU impractical to obtain sometimes. And people with faster bid-clicking skills than me!
Regarding government control over the kit, I am not sure... as far as I know, DPDU is only issued to Australian soldiers headed to the Middle East, and then turned back in once they come home. I've heard of old cams being cut up for polishing rags, but I'm not sure how the actual disposal process goes.
Thanks for looking!
