Very nice pattern! No home should be without one or three Field jackets are especially difficult to grab a hold of.
If you look at the temperate hat you can see some quality issues with the printing beyond what Gilles noted. The first run of CADPAT, the grandfather of all digital patterns, suffered from this same production issue. That cloth was rejected by the Canadian military and it eventually found its way out onto the civilian market in items made by Frontenac. This was cutting edge printing technology back then and I'm guessing it's the sort of thing that's still fussy even today.
Thanks Steve, they really are nice looking patterns.
Cant decide which I like best. Temperate, or Desert.
The field jacket is definitely well put together. Will live with the coloring issues, as I really like this garment. May try to find another so I can wear one and store one.
Still hunting for a Temperate combat uniform like the Desert set.
Although very attractive, unlike the field jacket, the combat sets are a bit lightweight IMHO. Certainly no match for the durable and functional USN and USMC working uniforms, and most other US uniforms ( against which I compare all modern combat uniforms ).
What I have seen on photos, Croatian soldiers wear such patches on different places on the shirt or jacket.Sometimes on the top right sleeve, or on the bigger velcro place under the small one. And sometimes not. Don't think that they have such strict rules for the right place.
Yup. A number of countries did this around the same time and I thought it would become a trend, but it seems it didn't last. Latvia was one of the countries that did it and, IIRC, the redesign for the production models removed it.
