    early Urban RDF set

    Post by bravo_2_zero on Thu Apr 16, 2009 2:57 pm



    1st is the RDF style pockets


    2nd is the RDF style rear shoulder section.


    The Tag Contract # 212-226-4163 Columbia Merchandise. INC. No MADE IN USA etc... wrote on it.



    Pants


    Very baggy like Vietnam Jungle pants.



    Single button rear pockets like RDF/Jungle pants



    Talon Zipper like RDF/Jungle pants



    Label Contract# 212-226-4163 Colco Manufacturing CO.




    Whats grabbing me is the Contract Numbers, Both are the same but makers are different.

    I have no idea about it, could be Police, SWAT but it is very early set ???

    Interesting, I wasn't aware of RDF urban pattern. I know there's BDU.

    It could be for Police and SWAT but also could be made for commercial uses as well.

    I have a feeling it was Government issue in one form or another, because the contract numbers match and they are made by 2 different contractors.
    I also have a feeling it's Government acquired because Urban print didn't start showing up on the surplus markets till the early 90's and this uniform cut is late 70's early 80's type.
    I've put this on lots of forums and nobody can give me an answer, they don't think it's a commercial product but apart from that it's unknown.

    The tell take " Made in USA " is not there, it says Urban Camo on the tags where as fakes just say combat pattern if anything @ all. The fakes usually make up a SN# and NATO# , this has contract.

    Back before i got into camo collecting i was fooled by Rothco and MSI into buying fakes, with this set there are too many flags in favor of Government contract weather is to civil or defense.
