    I have seen pics of these vests being handed out to Iraqi forces early on during the war , almost all I have seen were plain desert color , I believe these were a quick solution for the newly formed Iraqi Army ,until better gear could be issued .

    If anyone has more concrete info , please let me know !!

    Oops, I guess I sounded in my earlier post that I didn't think it was legit, not my intention I promise. The Iraqis have loads of weird and wonderful things they've used. I'd just meant that I didn't have any pics of any vests in my early Iraq period file ca 2004.

    Young Iraqi Soldiers want to look more like the American Soldier, So they will buy any U.S. or U.K. Gear they can find:
