    Hi there, this picture got me curious, since they seems to wear all the same pattern/camo. It is somehow familiar but i am not able to ID it. anyone knows? it's also really a good looking camo !

    Personally, I've given up trying to identify all the camo that separatist, "volunteers", and "vacationers" are wearing in Ukraine. Too many!! From time to time an unit appears mostly in the same uniforms, but usually it's a mix. Sometimes I see the uniforms on eBay, sometimes not.

    interestingly, i found pictures of the same camo pattern from 2 different sources the same day. This is from an article about chechen volunteers (pro-russian) . you can spot the third guy in both pictures, so I assume it's the same unit.

    You can get mad trying to distinguish all the camo patterns und uniforms used
    in the Ukrainian conflict. I even spotted KAZ 03 stuff on some pics.....

    I've spotted also italian vegetata over there. Not clear if worn purchased from aftermarket or an european volunteer.

    Yes, the pattern is very nice, I like it too. And got my set this morning for $19.60 shipped. The quality it's usually (and obviously) lower than similar products with known brands: I do have a Condor jacket and a chinese tad copy, and the chinese copy looks cooler, it's warm and still wearable but stitching, zippers and details are very poor. I use it for dog training and I wasn't expected it to last so long. And still waterproof!

    The amount of different camouflage patterns seen in Ukraine is almost uncountable because it includes commercial and military patterns. Sometimes just one item ever seen!

    I think a lot of these guys are supplying themselves from whatever sources they can afford to purchase from. Some are apparently buying as a unit, and others show a distinct lack of uniformity and rugged individuality.

    Hi toasted skittle,
    I got my set from aliexpress. You have to search for "tad soft shell" and with some patience you can get a good bargain. But don't expect outstanding quality, of course.
