By a pure coincidence our Friday Foto yesterday featured soldiers in the current Netherlands desert camouflage uniform – as you can see, that pattern is basically a copy of the US 3-color Day Desert Camouflage pattern.
Today a photo of the new Netherlands Fractal Pattern-Arid camouflage print appeared – courtesy of Quartermaster Gear in the Netherlands. Although not yet officially introduced, the photo shows the pattern being used by a Dutch Army sniper somewhere in the Dutch Antilles.

From their inception in the dark days of the summer of 1940 to their stunning victories against the odds in the Falklands War and beyond, the British Airborne Forces have cut a distinctive look on the battlefield as well.
But the Airborne Forces distinctive Parachutists Smock and baggy combat trousers were far more than just military fashion – they served extremely useful purposes, and left an indelible imprint on the design of ground combat clothing over the decades that followed.
Published in conjunction with the Airborne Forces Museum, the new book “DENISON”, due out next month from Military Mode Publishing, will be the most comprehensively researched and illustrated history of the special combat clothing used by British Airborne Forces from WWII to the present day.

SHM Standard Glock Package
It may be a “standard package” for SHM from a production perspective, but this make-over will turn your Glock into something much more special than a standard out-of-the box model.
SHM hand fits and polishes selected components from multiple manufacturers including a preset Zev Fulcrum full Stainless Steel trigger and resurfaced striker sear engagement to create a 3.5lb pull with minimal pretravel and overtravel and a short tangible reset. The sights are upgraded with a steel mounted green fiber optic front sight, and the I.C.E Claw EMS rear sight.
