    Finally it's time to cross this off my list! One of the rarest, if not the rarest Dutch jungle camo items.
    These seem to have turned up in just a few photos of KCT troops in Afghanistan. So far I could identify just 3 separate suits in such photos.

    Thanks, I shelled out a bit of cash for this because I don't think I'll come across another for many years!

    Yes I do, all of these have been MoD publicly posted, the only faces that aren't blurred are of Gijs Tuinman who is already well known
    for receiving the highest military award of the Dutch military, and the other person I forgot his name but he was KIA.

    Most of these pics are pretty hard to see the suit exactly, but typically any KCT guys with jungle at this time, were wearing that type of suit.
    Before when I mentioned a few pics, I meant clear ones where the suit can be identified exactly because of visible details, and I later found some
    more (unclear looking) photos. I should have about 2 more, but I can't find them, maybe I saved them in a wrong folder somehow.

    But not from the green zone, and apparently these suits are very good against dust

    Against dust??? I'm not sure, but the tissue is a very very sympathic one, it has a very open weave, therefore it ventilates very good, its a strong tissue, if you see how open it's weave is, and it's soft to the touch, so comfortable to wear.
    the construction of the tissue is the same as the latter batches from the desert uniform from the UK army.

    Another thing I noticed, people make so oft a big fuzz from which camo to wear where, that it should be optimal for each environment.
    These foto's seem to be KCT? they are profs, and if I see so, they are not so much worried with what they wear!???

    I see (in the above foto's) KMARNS (US woodland), standard KL Desert (US 3 color desert cam.), KL Jungle top worn with KL desert bottom etc.

    I assume beeing comfortable is more important?

    Well these uniforms are made of that same old fabric, not like the newer KPU label type uniforms which are made of stiffer fabric, but that's the comment that at least some KCT guy has been saying about it. Not sure how this suit would be any better against dust than the regular desert ones.

    But still, they like it, they use it. A lot of weird stuff can be seen in a single photo sometimes
