    Looks like a squaddie made boonie in old DPM. Nothing issued I'd think but quite neat.

    Bush hat in British 68 pattern DPM fabric, Probaly made to order by an off base tailor.

    Yup, that's what it looks like to me. No vent hole screens is a pretty good indication.

    There is an operation in the US (Grey Wolf Productions, if I have that right) that makes boonies out of things like shelter quarters. It's possible they made some out of cheap surplus DPM jackets (they are sometimes $4 each).

    But without any conformation that Grey wolf is doing this sort of stuff I'd go with the custom made for an active soldier theory.
