The word "flecktarn" comes from the German words "fleck" meaning "spot", and "tarnung" meaning "camoflauge". When you look at it for the first time, it's pretty self evident. However simple the idea of have 5 coloured dots mashed together being adopted as the German Army's go-to pattern, these little dots have a lot of history. Today's Flecktarn is the result of decades of German camoflauge development dating back to the Second World War with the original Axis "pea-patterns".
The mix of black, brown, dark olive and medium olive green spots on a mossy background make this simple pattern, surprisingly effective in temperate environments, making it the ideal pattern throughout North America and Europe. These awesome parkas all come with the internal poly-nylon liners. The heavy duty cotton parkas all include four large snap-buttoned front pockets and a small auxilary shoulder pocket. They also include cinching straps on both the parka and liner for the ability to insulate under the parka system. There are also zippered vent holes on the parka and liner armpits, with an addition of another air hole in the liner. Both the liner and parka can be worn as a standalone piece of kit, or combined together for extreme cold weather conditions.
Anything in Flecktarn as surplus will become increasingly rare as the German military recently decided that instead of surplusing these fine field shirts out the public, they're going to be burning them in the most environmentally unfriendly way possible.
Get them before they're gone, but be forewarned, they might emit a slight smell of braustwurst, saurkraut, and beer!
