    There is a 'later' version, done with the US-type green buttons - usually 1971 dated. The earlier black buttonned versions would be from 1967.

    This style of rain jacket is privately purchased by US Special Forces.

    The Australian Army’s Lightweight Tropical Smock was lighter than either the U.S. Army issued parka or poncho and soon became poplar with Special Forces troops in Vietnam as a result. Made in the Aussie's two-color camouflage, it could be folded into its breast pocket for easy storage and boasted the following features:
    -Front and back yoke air vents
    -Ventilated mesh armpits
    -Two flap covered pass-through pockets
    -Two pen pockets on the upper left sleeve
    -Two button cuffs
    -Hem drawstring
