MARPAT/FROG Question


Innerworld3

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Have recently been looking to collecting some USMC MARPAT uniforms.

Just one question that I can't seem to answer. Are all MARPAT trousers "FROG"?
Wasn't sure if these trousers are worn with both the FROG shirt and the MARPAT blouse, or just the FROG shirt.
Hope my question makes sense.

Thank you!

The "FROG" Trousers are a separate item issued with the combat shirt. FROG or Flame Resistant Organizational Gear are the Marines' combat shirt and pants. The pants are marked with the same FROG tag as the shirt and have reinforced knees and lower leg pockets; different from the standard trousers. The big difference being flame resistant material like the Army FR ACUs or OCPs. I was lucky enough to get a set of desert and woodland FROG suits from a Marine buddy of mine. Still working in getting a Woodland Crye set from a MARSOC buddy.

Ah, thank you, sir!
I'm looking to collect the standard uniform rather than FROG.

Now I won't be sinking my money into the wrong uniforms.
Cheers! :D

Additionally, the FROG trousers have wide beltloops (around 1" wide) and also have small pockets near the ankles.
