That's what we wore when I first got to the Ranger BN in late '81. They came in a mix of slanted and straight pockets. Those got taken away from us late summer of '82, and I wore standard OD Green Jungle fatigues for the rest of my stay there.I was going to say "If that old hat could talk it needs its own subforum"
When I showed up at 3/8 a few guys were still wearing ERDL utilities.
As a boot I looked with envy at their salty shit compared to my new NYCO woodlands.
That was a great camo pattern but those rip stops just didnt last physically or they faded to a bright non camo shade.
