Jacket is standard BDU patter with straight pockets and hidden buttons. Must be fairly late, but when?

That's all very nice, but this is a commercial item and not military issue.

Looks to me like the manufacturer just copied a BDU tag and sewed it on the commercial product.


Our local "surplus store" sells lots of these. What's interesting to me is that they sell, for example, jackets and trousers with a "BDU Cut" in ACU, MARPAT and OCP camo patterns, as well as woodland, desert, plain black, blue, gray, and tan, and in some cases "fashion camo" colors like orange, pink, or purple.


They also sell jackets in an ACU cut (zippered jacket, angled chest pockets with Velcro flaps, shoulder pockets with Velcro patches) in ACU, OCP, woodland, MarPat, and other patterns as well.


There seems to be no limit to what they can do with the BDU and ACU 'cut'. Lots of options out there but AFAIK none of them saw actual "military" use.

Notice it has no contract number. Not government procured. Meant to fool the buyer into thinking it is military.
