Back to the Future - Denison Cam

#1
Looking at the type of terrain in Afghanistan I got to thinking how would the old Denison smock fare compared to desert two colour DPM. Denison has a good open mix of sandy brown, green and dark brown - perfect for areas where vegetation is prominant, and dispruptive enough for more barren areas. Has anyone, SF or snipers, tried wearing anything similar?

Perhaps normal dpm material minus the blank print would suffice?

I have a copy Denison, purchased mid-1980's, made by supercraft garments, and it is my dedicated pigeon shooting jacket. Its as good in the woods as it is on stubble.

Maybe not the twill cotton version that was designed for temperate climates but from the same material as the dessies.

Perhaps a better option would be the old desert dpm pattern, which I believe the Iraqis adopted.

Nope he is right. Long before the stuff they've adopted now.

Not so much adopted as flogged to dirt cheaply about 5 to 10 years before we needed it back to kick them out of Kuwait!

It was issued to the Republican Guard, although the only set I saw was on an ex-brit in 2ReP(?) passing through KKIA Riyadh.

Much better than our brown/sand combo (Although I think we were still wearing Temperate DPM at that point!).
