I used to have an old camo shirt in a green dominant woodland camo pattern. At the time, I didn't realize it was even real military, it was just a cool shirt.
This is about what it looked like:


Does anyone know where I can get another shirt like this, or the matching pants, now, without paying "collector prices"?

Is this ERDL?

It looks like EDRL, but I am wondering about the pockets on the sleeves.

It is possible the pockets were added locally; I.E., in-country. Some units were more leniant about this sort of thing than others.

The pattern appearss to be ERDL.


I agree. Those pockes were added locally. I had the same thing done to my cammies on Okinawa when I was on active duty. My wife did it after I joined the reserves. I was issued a bush cover (boonie hat) in that pattern.

Ok, now I have a name to search for..THANK YOU. Arfcom delivers again.

Anyone know if there is anyplace selling these at less than "collector prices?"


ETA Good lord, I just did an Ebay search on ERDL.... Holy crap, I just found out that old shirt I got rid of years ago is worth BIG BUCKS! Not only that, it seems like the only ones left out there are for little guys... Guess I should be happy I am a big guy...

All US Marines were issued this uniform beginning '67. I recall many a Recon Marine and SOG types with the pockets added to the upper sleeves, and even some on top of the shoulder area.

Interesting. My dad was Kilo 3/9/3 in near the DMZ from June 67-July 68 and all he was issued was OD.

Yup, green-dominant ERDL fatigues...



You can see in this 1969 dated pic of 1st USMC Recon Marines that they are all wearing the same pattern fatigues.



In this pic of 3rd USMC Recon Marines (from the R/D AR15/M16 Retro Pic Thred) also shows the same camo. I think these were even used as far ahead as the 80s by US Army Rangers, seen a few pics of Ranger classes with a combination of ERDLs and OG-106 fatigues.

The 80's version of ERDLs (aka "Rapid Deployment Force" uniform) were a variant of the brown dominant ERDLs. The pockets were different on both the jacket and trousers and the fabric was lighter weight than the Vietnam era issue.

I was issued the jungle camos when I got to 2nd Ranger Bn in 1977. they made us change to the OD jungles when the Army went to the BDU camos in the 1980's. There are a few places on the internet that you can but them new. They are still being made in Thailand and imported.
