    I'm looking for pictures of camo trench coats, duster, etc. Essentially any camo coat that goes to the knees or longer. I've already seen some pictures of German officers during WWII wearing custom made camo trench coats, so I'm not looking for that. Most sites just bring up cheap looking coats for women, not military stuff.

    There's not many out there, that's for sure. Countries that kept trench coats as part of their field uniforms stuck with wool. Many of those nations didn't have a camouflage uniform at all when they were still in use. Since the 1960s trench coats have pretty much been abandoned in favor of shorter "parka" style coats.

    The only easy to get a hold of one I can think of is Austrian KAZ57 or KAZ59 parkas. You can find them on eBay pretty easily with the condition often being somewhat faded and repaired.
