    The setup is differant then normal Dutch  pants.
    These have a plastic adjuster as to normal pants only velcro
    The velcro is much better !
    The collors I know in shorts DPM and Jungle.

    Shorts are not in use since 1995 .Other parts on the armed forces didn,t like the look .
    Soldiers with shorts are no soldiers was the opinion.

    I would not want to be the one who had to tell these guys they were not soldiers because they were wearing shorts could be bloody painful.

    The problem here was the Airmobile [luchtmobiel] brigade was walking around in shorts during a painfull periode.Srebrenica.The Marines did some sh..t talking about sissys in shorts.Real soldiers like them would have handed the situ better and would never walk in shorts.Thats the short reason.

    Awesome pics! I've never seen these shorts before.

    I have modern shorts from Belgium, Lithuania, Norway, Denmark, and several other countries. And like the Dutch shorts they are definitely not cut down long trousers.

    Generally speaking camouflage shorts are issued in much smaller numbers than normal trousers. I rarely see them available for sale. They don't tend to inspire much interest, though, so they're generally less expensive than trousers UNLESS the trousers are available in huge numbers for little money.
