    hi people bought this camo water bottle off a guy yesterday with some other stuff he said it was vietnam era but only cost me $2 AU so I thought I'd grab it either way . I'v not seen this camo before. the water bottle has had one of the button/clips replaced . I'm unsure if it is Mitchell pattern camo or early ERDL . any help would be great thanks .

    now I feel like a numpty it's defiantly ERDL pattern ... Mitchell pattern has no black splodges ... and looks more like a tree ... ... yes I'm an idiot :P

    Sorry it aint ERDL either, it's some form of DPM [disruptive pattern material] mostly used by the British armed forces, also used by New Zealand and a few other counties.
    You can tell it's DPM by the black dots around the black areas of the camo which ERDL never had. Just to complicate things DPM sometimes doesn't have the dotted areas like the version used by the Dutch!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I think Matthew you have a made up cam there..I don't think the waterbottle & pouch are real Army issue!!! They look like the cheap bottles you got in the 70's for camping & playing Army..But if you only paid 2 dollars you ain't gone wrong.. Cheers Terry.

    At $2-$3 a pop, I would be back there next week as well.
    Nothing fancy or rare, but those are bargain basement
    prices - and you never know what other stuff
    he might have.........!
    Regards,

    The bottle does look some sort of issued bottle just because of the stock number on the bottom. But I wouldn't have a clue as to what country??. Cheers Terry.
