The Swiss army sure figured out toy knives, but their blanket game is weaker than a .40 S&W. Afghans have them beat with this multipurpose patu. These are used by locals and soldiers as blankets, jackets, and natural camouflage in the cold mountains of Afghanistan.
U.S. and U.K. special forces, including Delta and SBS, used Afghan pakol hats, patu blankets, and Chinese and Russian surplus gear to disguise themselves as locals before the assault on Tora-Bora. Once the battle was underway, the muted colors and flowing lines of the local Afghan garb blended in with their surroundings and broke up their outlines. Though U.S., U.K., and Afghan forces defeated the Taliban and al-Qaeda soldiers, Bin-Laden managed to escape to Pakistan, where the U.S. had to wait ten whole years to kill him. Now you too can assault mountain cave complexes in style.
