    I heard that there's are some commercial Ukrainian desert uniforms on ebay. How can I make out fake from real? What are the differences?
    Thanks,
    Philip

    HI Philip,
    I had several sets at one time of ukrainian desert that came direct from Iraq. The issue uniforms I had were ripstop and the ripstop pattern was very noticeable. The above look like regular fabric and they appear better made than the issue sets to be honest.

    Here are pics. THe boonie shows how visible the ripstop is on the issue pieces I had.

    HI Andrew, the first pic doesn't look like ripstop to me, at least these old eyes can't see it. The pics I posted later quite clearly show the ripstop

    Actually on magnification, the set Sergey posted seems to be ripstop but it's very faint in the photo.

    I had a commercial set and it is quite easy to tell what it is. Unfortunately I did not have the commercial set at the same time as my genuine issue set (thanks again Chris!), so I can't comment on the specifics of the cloth. BUT... I think the cloth is the same, or perhaps just a little bit different.

    Here are pics of the commercial set:

    Shiny buttons, zipper pockets, etc. Pretty much nothing in common with the real deal.

    Also, just to add a bit here.
    I spoke with the fella that got my boonie, he's a boonie hat collector, he bought one of the ebay ukraine desert boonies which was NOT ripstop. It's minefield out there.

    At least when I bought my commercial set I knew exactly what I was getting into. The seller had them in any size you wanted, which is a Red Flag of the highest order that the item is commercial. And of course when I got the real set from you I knew it was the real deal. I feel lucky to not have to wade through the minefield!

    That is quite a lot of color variation! Thanks for showing them all in one picture. It's good to see them all with the same lighting and right next to each other.

    Small clarification about uniforms shown on Sergey's photo(I had a chance to wear all of them)

    So, from left to right

    camo #1 - first version - issued for Ukr troops entering Kuwait and Iraq in 2003. Has very poor quality of everything (fabric, colour etc.) From my own experience - this uniform was too hot to wear in Iraq, it was changing in size right after first washing, and losing color as well.

    camo # 2 - later version (I'm not sure about the exact years). A little bit better quality, but still desire to be better.

    camo # 3 - current version. Not so bad - ripstop, issued for our soldiers participating in ops in Iraq and other countries with hotweather or desert environment (UN mission in Sudan for instance).

    Hope this explanation will be useful.

    real items. Vest is not so bad, but holster sucks! We don't use this holster at all in practice.

    It does seem like a piece of junk , and is probably why there are so many for sale on ebay for cheap , I had to have one to add to the collection , How many different pieces are there in this pattern ???
