    I have had this early ANA woodland uniform since 2003 or 2004. It has been stored in a tote box and recently found it while relocating my collection.

    This appears to be a Chinese made woodland uniform that was used early on by the fledgling Afghan National Army. Uniform has no manufacturer stamps or marks anywhere I can see. Pockets are held down by cheap velcro.

    Two slits have been cut into the shirt for the Afghan jump wings to be placed on. Wings are held on by a piece of plastic coated wire.

    Pants have two hip pockets and one thigh pocket.

    Cap is a standard Afghan design. It has a gold ANA badge attached to the front.

    Now that is a rare set! Fun to see that the jacket is vertical while the trousers are horizontal.

    Thanks, Steve. I was told by Eric L. that the cloth is Pakistani in origin, made locally, and probably was used by the Taliban pre-OEF. I would bet this camo was used in limited numbers by the fledgling ANA.
