    Hello,

    I know it is getting common now, but it is my first afghan patched uniform and I am very happy about it.

    Don't think I am going further more in the subject but as it is an army we are mentoring, I thought it will be an appropriate addition to my collection.

    I bought it like this from a french soldier who brought it from Kabul.

    Would like to know how much you guys (specially non-Afghanistan veterans) are

    paying for such a set in the States ?

    As I understand the fabric is coming from the States and it is assembled in Kabul ?

    Jean-Yves

    I can assure you that these sets are NOT common. The Afghan Govt. is cracking down on uniform swapping or selling. Too many Taliban were getting their hands on these uniforms and using them for bad things.

    Unpatched sets sell for around $150 or so IF you can find them. There are many collectors who'd love to get their hands on a set of the ANA digital.

    You are correct about the fabric being made in the US and being assembled in Afghanistan.

    I paid this set 50 €/63 USD. I had the possibility to bought three patched, but I thought one was enough.

    Thanks for your further information concerning the way it is produced.

    Very nice! And as Arch indicated, very hard to find and desirable.

    My first Afghan 201st Corps patched Uniform Empty Afghan camo

    Post by reaperm120 Fri May 18, 2012 6:15 pm

    I had a great source for those when I was over there. I paid about 30 US per set of the new digitized camo plus insignia. Still came in under 50 US. In hindsite, I should have gotten as many sets as my guy could have supplied.

    Hi,

    Well, just get my second 201st Corps (FOB GAMBERI) ANA set but this time from SAFI APPAREL CORPORATION dated 2009. This time used, the vest has no rank velcro and announced as a Large Regular but in fact it is a Small. The velcros suffered from the sun. Nothing great but this time it has been worn.
