    Lucky! I want to have at least one set of German ISAF patched set so I could expand my coalition forces collection.

    Thank you very much guys! He told me that he wore locally made rank insignia in AFG and wanted to keep them as a reminder (of course!). So he put on those standard rank insignia again, that he wore on his trip to AFG.

    Hello, jacket with its label and the pants are really the ones used in Afghanistan? Fabric is Ripstop?
    Otherwise if you have photos of German soldiers where we can see the outfits, I'm interested.
    Thank you to you

    Yes, for sure this is the uniform used in AFG. The nametag with German flag and ISAF symbol is produced in AFG only. Unfortunately I have no pics of this particular uniform in use here on my PC. Please type "Bundeswehr ISAF" in Google's picture search and you'll see tons of pics of these uniform style in use.

    Very nice Grouping, like Ben said,I like them Boot's too,they look very similiar to the German Lowa Desert Boots, now supplied to Brit troops in Afghanistan.

    I have a Troperntarn Shirt too,I will have to dig it out of storage Wink

    Actually it's Wüstentarn 3-Farbdruck (desert camo 3 color print). Tropentarn is similar to regular Flecktarn but colors look a little more subdued/faded. Common mistake.

    Phil, check this link to see an "Wüsten-Tarndruck" (TL 8305-0334) "desert-camo" field blouse for comparison:

    http://www.recon-company.com/media/catalog/product/r/e/recon-161533-1.jpg

    The official designation for the camo set I posted is: "3-Farben-Tarndruck" (TL 8305-0290) "3-Color-Camo".

    Somewhat confusing...
