    Interesting, I wasn't aware of RDF urban pattern. I know there's BDU.

    It could be for Police and SWAT but also could be made for commercial uses as well.

    I have a feeling it was Government issue in one form or another, because the contract numbers match and they are made by 2 different contractors.
    I also have a feeling it's Government acquired because Urban print didn't start showing up on the surplus markets till the early 90's and this uniform cut is late 70's early 80's type.
    I've put this on lots of forums and nobody can give me an answer, they don't think it's a commercial product but apart from that it's unknown.

    The tell take " Made in USA " is not there, it says Urban Camo on the tags where as fakes just say combat pattern if anything @ all. The fakes usually make up a SN# and NATO# , this has contract.

    Back before i got into camo collecting i was fooled by Rothco and MSI into buying fakes, with this set there are too many flags in favor of Government contract weather is to civil or defense.
