    Woodland BDU modified uniforms

    The next two sets I will post are woodland BDU's. Woodland BDU's are probably the most common of all modified jackets to find. I have more of them in my collection than I do any of the other patterns. These were very common in the mid 1980's up until fairly recently. These type jackets would have been used by US Army SF, USMC Force Recon, USMC Recon, US Navy SEAL's, and USAF Special Forces.

    Most often, the pockets will have velcro on the sleeve pockets and velcro over the chest pockets as well. Sometimes, you will find glint tape still attached (usually sewn with an X stitch) to the sleeve pockets.

    I am including this set because of the unusual collar closure that was added. I have never found another one like this. It just goes to show you that these jackets can be very personalized.
