Camo! Both Duck Hunter and ERDL (we presently have the following items for sale):


 

General: The camoflage clothing we have available is in one of two patterns. The first, "Duck Hunter" pattern camoflage, was copied from the U.S. WWII  pattern by private companies for the sportsman's market.  However at the begining of the Vietnam War, the U.S. had no official camouflage uniform. Many soliers bought these through the local base PX  before arriving in Vietnam. This style jungle shirt was worn by MACV Advisors, CIDG Advisors, Navy Seals, Special Forces and some Marines. They became so popular that many asian companies began producing them and the pattern was adopted by ROK units and ARVN Rangers. In the right image above is an ARVN ranger in "duck hunter" camo.

The second pattern is the ERDL pattern, which is the woodland version of the camoflage, is a bit rarer.  At left, above, is an ARVN Ranger in the ERDL/Woodland version of the camo.  The ERDL / woodland pattern, which came out in the late 1960s. They were first used by Special Forces and Navy Seals, later by the Marines and ARVN Rangers. The pattern later  became official with all U.S. forces.

The sizes will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. If you have questions concerning particular dimensions, please contact us by email.  Please pardon our fine models. Good help is hard to find.
