All time favorite was the Marine WWII Camo, it was reversible. We called it Leopard Camo, probably not the official name for it.

But, I like the Woodland Camo from the 70's-80's, it's cheap in the surplus stores.

I read that the reversible marine Camo was too thick for the hot Pacific campaign and no one wore them.

That might be true, don't really know. All the WWII Marines I knew from when I was younger, talked about the Herringbones, and how much they likes them. I have a Utility Blouse from WWII, with the brass buttons stamped USMC.

There's a online store that sells them, but I've never bought from them, so I can't speak to the quality. Here's a link

Here's a couple of pics of the original Herringbone.

A Vietnam Vet friend of mine told me a story. In the late 60's he became a mustang and they told him to get a new uniform. He went and got a new set of herringbones. He said he's walking along and some WW2 Marine sees him and goes ballistic on him and said only WW2 vet Marines could wear those and made him get rid of the uniform. Maybe he was getting picked on or maybe It's a tradition.

A TACS FG right now. They have an urban arid version too.

Use multicam at work right now. But we have to put gAyCUs back on soon.

A TACS FG is a sweet kit for hunting for sure.....
