    Iraqi Desert Tiger Stripe Uniform

    One of my Holy Grail items.  Iraqi used Chinese made desert tiger stripe uniform.  This uniform was imported by Karnas Company in Erbil, Iraq.  I was told by an Iraqi gentleman that these were used post 2003 by the Iraqi Special Guards of the President (Presidential Guards).  I think some of the Iraqi SF types used them as well.

    Nice set Arch. This pattern was definitely worn used by USSF advisors with their IA counterparts. Have sets that came direct from friends in 5th and 10th groups. The ones that I have handled only have the small yellow Chinese tags. Nothing added by the importer.
