    Hello
    You can see on this jacket that the grey colors is not a colors variant of the pattern but a problem with the green colors used for the garment

    Very nice pattern! No home should be without one or three Wink Field jackets are especially difficult to grab a hold of.

    If you look at the temperate hat you can see some quality issues with the printing beyond what Gilles noted. The first run of CADPAT, the grandfather of all digital patterns, suffered from this same production issue. That cloth was rejected by the Canadian military and it eventually found its way out onto the civilian market in items made by Frontenac. This was cutting edge printing technology back then and I'm guessing it's the sort of thing that's still fussy even today.

    Thanks Steve, they  really  are  nice looking  patterns.

    Cant decide which I like best.  Temperate, or Desert.

    The field jacket is definitely well put together.  Will live  with the coloring issues, as I really like this
    garment. May try to find another so I can wear one and store one.

    Still hunting for a Temperate combat uniform like the Desert set.

    Although very attractive, unlike the field jacket,  the combat sets are a bit lightweight IMHO.  Certainly no match for the
    durable and functional USN and USMC working uniforms, and most other US uniforms ( against which I compare all modern combat uniforms ).

    Still an interesting and a must have pattern....

    A few used and new temperate pieces.

    First up is a lightly used set.









    Next up is a new shirt. Did not post trousers as I do not want to be too redundant.







    A new set without patches.





    Contrasting view of used and new pieces.  The used pieces have not been worn much, so the difference is slight, but certainly  present.





    Trousers at left, and shirt on top are used.    Enjoy.....

    What I have seen on photos, Croatian soldiers wear such patches on different places on
    the shirt or jacket.Sometimes on the top right sleeve, or on the bigger velcro place under the small one. And sometimes not. Don't think that they have such strict rules for the right place. Wink

    There seems to be little  rhyme or reason  how the Para, and other  patches are worn.

    I  received the  ( temperate ) sets posted in this thread patched as in the photos,  the desert set was also  patched like  pictured.

    Gilles posted good reference  photos of  Croatian Spec Ops troops  wearing patched uniforms in the ( Croatian ) digital patterns thread..

    Been after this one for quite some time.

    Finding my size was probably one of the reasons it took so long.

    No need to be jealous Alex, you have plenty rarities to be proud of ... pirat pirat

    Yup. A number of countries did this around the same time and I thought it would become a trend, but it seems it didn't last. Latvia was one of the countries that did it and, IIRC, the redesign for the production models removed it.
