    NFP UBACS, the cut is very slim and athletic nothing for a beer-belly, overall they could have done better with that
    kind of combat shirt IMHO. Fixed sewn in padding velcro closure on pockets is very flimsy:

    Hi,
    Those labels worry me as there is no NATO size, just a L. L means nothing as you pointed out. Are these legit UBACS? Many other companies follow on with copies of both item and label. I know the label looks legit.....BUT.
    Maybe contact Mr Michel Wijnand, he is the Bible of Dutch Gear
    Regards Kevin

    Dutch army seems to use US style size descriptions quite a while.
    They are also used on the DPM UBACS and trials UBACS:

    NFP camo UBACS S-l50010

    NFP camo UBACS S-l16011

    NFP camo UBACS S-l16012

    NFP camo UBACS S-l16013

    So I guess this NFP UBACS is real issue you can see it also on offical MoD interim uniform presentation pictures.
    Commerical stuff is usually also not permethrin treated. The khaki colored trials UBACS cut was also used with NFP camouflage.

    When the woodland still was manufactured, all gear was marked with nato sizing. AND manufacterer names were still on the labels, Why they don't do that anymore???

    I have a UK desert ubacs, they already have that (is that american?) S,M,L, XL, sizing system.

    and it also was a horrible cut, just like the post starter indicates for this NFP Ubac.
    I imagine that they still have less athletic sergeants majors and kaptains who they issued UBACS?
