    Afghan Tiger Stripe?

    Post by anelles on Sat Jul 09, 2016 7:06 pm

    Found this mixed in with a bunch of DCUs at a shop outside of Fort Campbell.

    It appears to be an Afghan made desert tiger stripe uniform. A quick google search of the manufacturer brought this up. http://www.stripes.com/news/middle-east/putting-afghan-soldiers-in-afghan-made-uniforms-seen-as-boost-for-ailing-economy-1.402829

    Anyone know what I have here? I spent $60 on the set, being Afghan made I figured it was worth the gamble.

    I have a replica Crye Range vest made by the same place. What I could find out was the place is a suit company and back in the day some operators used them to make equipment in country, to make up for low numbers sent by various companies. This is a replica of the Gen 1 Crye Fields as far as I can tell. This is pretty sweet man!

    NDS continue to wear these. So looks like current NDS uniform which is rare

    Yeah I saw that too. The NDS pattern seems to be a little different. It's 3 color, this has a fourth color in it. A google image search of NDS shows some of their Tiger uniforms, they're also in the same cut as the standard ANA uniform top, different than this.

    Maybe this is NDS as well, but I'm not sure.

    While it is more than likely an afghan bringback it has probably been directly imported from china. Those crye precision style sets have been around from china shops since the introduction of the original crye sets, priced around 30$. They are still available in various camouflages. Probably they came with that tag already attached too. I'll double check at home how my chinese made sets are marked.
