    Genuine item of clothing. Hardface-type jacket for cooler conditions. More of a windproof garment than waterproof.

    Yep, I've seen one in the flesh. Great jacket but such a shame that DPDU is not a wear about town friendly type of camo. Or is it ? scratch

    Not in Australia. Never seen DPDU being worn 'fashionably' as yet, lotsa Iraq and 'Ghan vets would give one too much $h1t over it ...

    i guess except for the big 3 (Russia, US and the UK), camo item is not yet fashionable. Not too many would wear their own camo in the street.

    See a lot of them in America tho, many people wore UCP with SF patch on it aren't real. I do saw quite a few wear DPCU in the street of Sydney, but not DPDU
    I never see even one person wore Swedish M90 in the street in Sweden unless they are military. Hence i am contemplating about joining thE Swedish Defence Force.
