Now this is an interesting twist on MARPAT. Apparently, the Marine insignia is integrated right into the pattern... [url]http://www.hyperstealth.com/CADPAT-MARPAT.htm[/url]
...A Marine was quoted in a recent article that the U.S. Marines insignia was pixilated into the MARPAT design which should stop any knockoffs of MARPAT....

That is what the big hoopla has been about all along. The other services could easily remove the EGA from the pattern and insert their own if they would like. I can guarantee that if the Army, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard had been the first to exploit the emblem angle, you would NEVER catch a Marine wearing NAVPAT / ARMPAT / AIRPAT /CGPAT or what ever they would choose to call it.

And here all of them have ripped off the Canadians from the get-go. [:D]

I think somebody's been smoking too many maple leaves. I don't see any EAG's or maple leaves in those patterns. But then I've never been able to find those damn "hidden" pics in the weird posters, either.

That guy's probably been staring at the pattern too long. This is what I dug up on ebay: [img]http://ebay2.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_e6e81b59d35b1bee65d53c548b632fa5/i-3.JPG[/img] Haven't been able to spot the EGA in any other photos of the pattern, so I'm not sure if it's authentic. MARPAT wearers - is this what the "embedded" EGA looks like? And are there, as claimed, 7 per square yard?

I suppose you have to have enough contact buzz from CLP in order to see it.

The "embedded" EGAs are plainly visible if you look closely enough, like in mmx1's pic. I believe the hyperstealth.com guy is out-to-lunch on this one.
