    I bought this along with a legitimate B-H MARPAT uniform.  This is likely either private purchase or an official contract purchase.  The flag is hand stitched on, but the velcro was machine stitched at the factory. The buttons are also brown, which is contrary to usual US commercial practices. The buttons on B-H government issued uniforms are a similar brown. Anybody have any information?

    I've seen these more than once. So I guess it's not a private purchase.

    You could be correct. Maybe they had a supply shortage or there was a delay with the initial batch of domestic production?

    As I have heard, first few batches were donated by US, only with Bosnian flag.
