    That's probably spot on! However, it's pretty much impossible to tell the difference between the 3rd (smooth) and 4th Models (ripstop) unless you get a close up/high res image because the cloth colors and cut are identical between the two. So if you can't see the texture of the cloth, it's very difficult to know.

    After further review.. Very Happy

    Looks like it is a 4th type ( ripstop ).

    Sleeve velcro on the 4th type takes up most of the sleeve pocket while the 3rd type has a smaller velcro square below the national flag...

    Side by side color comparison of the different Temperate cloth in my collection, excluding the 2005 ripstop type (I have trousers, so I can confirm it exists).  The above uniform sample is second from the left.
