    I picked these up over the weekend. Both had insignia at 1 time but since removed.

    1st up. A woodland digital pattern. 4 pocket, all button. Made in China. Looks to be a CadPat knock off to me, but I've never had real CadPat.

    2nd, Desert digital. I feel I've seen this before. reminds me kinda of my Czech and my German, but no green. Velcro pocket closures on all 4 pockets. Zipper front with snap cover. Small pocket on left sleeve. No tags or stamps.

    First one is for sure a commercial CADPAT knockoff. Nothing at all like any of the issued kit in any way Wink

    The second one is also likely commercial. This is in the Middle Eastern style, so it is possible it is a contract piece, but without a label I'd not count on it.

    There's SO MUCH stuff floating out of China these days it's impossible to keep track of it all. My rule of thumb is if it doesn't look exactly like something I'm familiar with I assume it is Chinese. It's a safe bet!

    i figured the CadPat was commercial. I`ve seen it from Propper and Tru-Spec, but wasn`t sure if this was a piece
    contracted through the Chinese for a foreign country. I`ve had similar labels in Iraqi MarPat knock offs. Usually the jacket label says TROUSERS though. Does anyone else use CadPat?

    The 2nd may be commercial, but it was used. Stitching from tapes over both pockets, patches on both sleeves. What is the pattern tho?

    Yup, it's quite possible the second jacket is legit Kuwaiti Army. I'm pretty sure it should have a label inside. It could have been removed, though.
