    Yeah, My Chinese Woodland set looks identical in Cut and material, I think overall, they are ALL cheaply made.

    The Woodland set was official issue for quite a while. The Chinese went through a period of making tons of uniforms in the official cut in different camo patterns. Some were used in limited numbers by Chinese forces, but most were just made for commercial markets.

    I've seen Chinese made "chocolate chip" made in 3 different patterns:

    1. US colors
    2. Similar to US colors, no black
    3. Saudi type gray based colors

    Some sort of Chinese special forces wore a uniform in US colors (#1), but the only detailed pics I've seen show it in a unique cut. Lots of features not found on the usual uniform cut. But the pictures I have aren't very good so I can't rule out their use of the normal cut. I've also got small, blurry pics of them using other uniforms which generally are thought of as commercial.

    I don't know about you guys but are some of these uniforms cheaply made? I got a Tibetan Flecktarn pattern and the inside of the pockets were made from woodland material.

    I think I have 10 or 11 Chinese sets, and only 1 or 2 is thicker material, most are the same thin stuff and made with the zippers and all like the above examples. I will get around to posting them all, pretty soon. I have seen Chinese versions of German desert, US 3 colour & a country I forget right off the top of my head, so they have copied alot of the various desert patterns out there

    The best made set I have is oddly enough the one I paid $7.99 for....go figure...see link below
