Anyone familiar with the movie will remember that there was a unique *original* pattern designed for the film - consultation & production took place in 2004-2005 & the wardrobe designers wanted a unique 'futuristic' camo pattern. It was decided that one of the new-fangled digital patterns was the way forward & so the design guys took a photo of british DPM, pixelated it & changed the colours to a more 'urban' colourway. It was called 'digital dpm' throughout the project, but with Viper releasing their absolutely horrific commercial digital dpm a while back it's been called 'COMpat' by a few of the guys i know who own sets.
as far as I know only 150 sets were procured & manufactured, there were only about 100 actors/extras at most using it, but they made a few extra sets.. 50 small, 50 medium & 50 large. The camo sets consist of a helmet with cover, a jacket, trousers & body armour. The LBE/webbing that was used was a really cheap nylon copy of standard olive green PLCE - They actually approached my friend Lee to procure them 100 sets of real o.g PLCE to use, but it was pretty scarce on the surplus market at the time (& still is!) - so they sent a couple of the sets off to china to get copied. The movie made sets wouldn't stand up to *any* abuse, they were just filled with packing foam to look full! (Ironically a couple of months after filming finished, Field Textiles was filled with mint *full* sets of O.G PLCE - a warehouse full had been found in Kuwait & finally disposed of - it had been sitting there since the OP Granby/Desert Storm build-up but was never needed!)
Enough writing, on with the pics..

Inside showing label & where the 'soft armour' goes (actually a foam mat of some sort..)
Trousers (which only have 2 cargo pockets, no back or slash front pockets, they would have put the budget even higher than it was )
will post more bits later on..
