One of the most recognised and sought after camouflage patterns, the iconic Tiger Stripe. The pattern's origins are shrouded in mystery, but it's very clear that it's a direct descendent of the lizard pattern that was used by the French prior to their withdrawal and remained in use with the South Vietnamese well into the 60s. Tiger Stripe was developed and used extensively by the ARVN forces from 1959, but would find its way into the backs of many US troops who obtained sets either from ARVN stores or from the many tailors around bases who would make them in the larger US sizes.

This particular pattern is known (by Sgt Johnson's classification) as the Late War Lightweight (LLD) variation. These were predominantly produced for US troops and tend to fit bigger sizes. The key differentiators with the pattern are the lightweight fabric, which was suited to the tropical climates, but was disliked by soldiers as it tended to rip easily in the bush, and its pea green colour when fading. 

Condition

These are in used but great condition. The colours are strong, and green is still a strong pea colour. There is a tiny repair to the rear pocket.
