    I picked this uniform set up from a retired Marine (also have a boonie i havent recieved yet). The story goes that he was a "Coyote" instructor at 29 Palms (Tactical Training Excercise Control Group). In 2006 he requested through Crye (and other manufacturers) any new camo or uniform types that they wanted to test out. He claims this version came from Crye. There are no tags or size tags listed anywhere (i checked every pocket). I have no reason to doubt the Marine because he's legit and has other prototype gear. He said they tested this uniform and the feedback wasnt that high due to the lighter-weight material and the dark marks looked like dried blood.

    Has anyone seen this camo pattern and could it actually be Crye? The uniform construction is more of an ACU cut and unlike any Crye uniform type ive seen. I know Crye started more of a camouflage and design company and then later on started to actually manufacturer they're own uniforms. Could this have been a Crye designed pattern that they subcontracted to another company to make the uniform? Any info would be greatly appreciated!! (Have more photos if needed)

    This is a HyperStealth pattern... I believe it's the desert viper variant from their SpecAm line.

    First physical example I've seen, usually there are only mockups or photosimulations of the pattern. Very nice!

    Youre awesome! Hard to tell based on the website's photo since it looks dark but the pattern seems to match.

    Does anyone have photos of USMC actually using this stuff? I thought it was mainly an Army trial thing. And is this stuff hard to find or for the public to order or get a hold of?

    Hyperstealth made the ANCOP pattern so its very close. I found an article saying they used the "Sierra" pattern while i think the one i have is the Desert Viper

    It's a very cool find indeed. I wonder if this pattern is still in production by them? I've seen their order pages but have never bothered to investigate what's being offered. Laughing

    I sent the same photos to the email listed on Hyperstealth's website. Well Guy Cramer actually replied himself and here is the reply...

    "That would be the SpecAm Desert Viper. Only 10 were made.

    So i dont think theyre making it anymore, maybe on a large special order. He told me one or two went to the military for testing (which is one i got for the USMC) and the others went to a bad sci-fi movie called "The Last Sential". There are photos online of the actors wearing them.

    I played around with their order pages too but nothing seems to work on it. And plus their website seems to be stuck in around 2005 lol. Doesnt look like its really been updated since
