    There's a seller, whitefacedmonkey (or something similar), who seems to always have one for sale. He must have bought a ton of them. Funny thing is I've never seen the trousers from him or anybody else. Just the parkas. He also has an ample supply of the experimental MCCU/ACU uniform. I know a little bit about the seller so it doesn't surprise me that he has good connections.

    BTW, from what I've seen of this pattern I'd say it's one of the most effective general purpose snow camouflages out there. It's a shame it apparently won't be used.

    Just picked up a set of the snow MARPAT tonight from a guy at Quantico! The pack cover is from the 2007 test but the top and bottoms are newer, issued gear. He told me it was issued to him when he was in the Northern Providences of Afghanistan but he never actually used it (still has tags).

    The kicker of the deal... a brand new USMC Happy Suit also!

    Got the whole package for only $250! (that also included a used MARPAT assault pack, a used flt suit and brand new ESS goggles). Talk about a STEAL!

    But its the COOLEST! Smile I wish the top was designed more like the Gortex MARPAT jackets though. Kindof flimsy feeling with just big buttons. I love the Happy Suit though. I beleive its just like the Army's PCU layer system (i think its layer Cool

    Ill post some pics of everything when i get home tonight
