    Hi Need some information. I was on the Bay of Fundy, looking and came across a sellers with USMC GEN II MARPAT Gore-Tex Jackets.
    I have a Set Top and bottoms with the EGA Red and Black label on inside of Jacket, the Trousers have non except the
    Embedded Small EGA's on the material. The Jacket has No wind waistband Unlike My USMC GENII in BDU Woodland,
    and My ACU GEN II Jacket both Stamped Gore-Tex.

    Most USMC GT Jackets are going for 150. 180 used. New 250.00 some sellers on Flea Bay are asking.
    This USMC GenII Jacket when I saw the Embedded Small EGA on the Material was noting like the one I have,
    the letters looked funny.

    The NSN ### I couldn't fined it and the maker never heard of them. There was no Big Red Black EGA Label
    just the TAG sewn on. I asked If he could provide Clear pictures of the Inside and no reply.

    They funny part he was asking $110.00 new per Jacket and no one Bid on non of the Jackets listed.

    So did the Marines Get GENII Jackets with improvements? Do they have that windbreaker on the waist?
    Do the Have a EGA Label? Ect.

    Any bread Crumbs would be appreciated.

    There have been no changes to the Green digital USMC Gore-Tex jacket or trousers. Both the jacket and the trousers should have the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor in the pattern. Both have standard green tags and the jacket only has a USMC full color tag on the inside of a breast pocket. I am not exactly sure what you mean by windbreaker at the waist, do you mean a snow skirt like the old ECWCS or a elastic waist draw cord? The standard USMC Gore-Tex jacket has a elastic draw cord at the waist that is accessed from inside the chest pockets.

    What you may have seen was this:

    Tru-Spec is making a Digital Woodland camouflage gore-tex set that looks a lot like MARPAT. It is also much cheaper.

    It's a fake. Helikon-Tex is a Polish company. The label is pure hogwash. The fabric is almost certainly a copyright violation. All USMC gear (All US Military gear, for that matter) must be produced in the USA. PTFE laminate is the technical name for Gore-Tex, but most PTFE like this is inferior to genuine GORE-TEX. Here's a link to the genuine article:

    Private purchase gear can be made anywhere, so long as it conforms to AR 670-1.

    It's only the stuff that the government buys on contract that must be made in the USA.

    Small unit purchases over a certain amount must be made on US-made stuff, too.
