    I have seen this pattern before, but cannot for the life of me remember where... scratch

    I want to say it is a commercially-produced pattern made by some hunting or recreational clothing company, or something along those lines.

    As to my knowledge, this pattern has never been trialled for wear by US Armed Forces.

    This is called ASAT camouflage. It is 100% commercial. As the label says, this was marketed by a large catalog company called Brigade Quartermaster (still very much in business). Here is a link to the trademark holders of this pattern:

    Supposedly the US Army did test this pattern in the early 1980s, I think, but I don't think it was anything special and definitely not widespread. This piece is made from ripstop which I'm sure is more recent.

    ASAT -- that's what it is... thanks for the info Steve. I knew I had seen it referenced elsewhere but kept drawing a blank as to what it was called.

    Interesting information about Peru! Special Forces, of course, often purchase commercial patterns for their use. I wonder if there is any way to determine if an item is really from Peru's use or from a hunter. Different tags, features, cloth, etc.

    Yes, it is ASAT (All Season All Terrain) camouflage in the Tan variant.
    ASAT no longer make BDU jackets and the slight “gap” in the pattern as seen on the back, on the right hand side, was later closed.
    ASAT used to make a Gray variant with a grey background, and brick reddish brown coloured limb shapes instead of yellowish brown coloured limb shapes.
