    We all know Arktis and we probably all heard of the 6 color chocolate chip US desert Camo. The combination of the two seems to be a bit of a mystery. I can’t find any info on this garment . Who knows more and is willing to share?

    Thanks,

    David

    6 color chocalate chip Arktis smock Empty Message from Arktis

    Contacted Arktis the other day and received their reply which is great but unfortunately it did not held the info I was hoping for.


    Good morning David,

    I have spoken to my colleagues here at Arktis, especially the older serving ones, and all I can find out about this smock is the following:

    US chocolate chip camo, product code B110

    This was made many years ago before any of my colleagues worked here and I can confirm the camo has not been ordered in our time here.

    I am sorry I cannot be of more help, but it does appear you have a very collectable smock there!

    Best regards,

    I think I remember these having something to do with a Dutch contract for either the marine corps of KCT.
    The KCT did use smocks in DDPM with green velcro in the SFIR mission, and marines have used actual US made BDU's
    in 6-color desert camo in the early 90's. I've also seen some 6CD stuff that might have been trial or orientation items.

    Thanks Michel,

    Is there a way to determine this? The mistery is only getting bigger . But with the marines and KCT involved the story is getting better and better.😀
