What a classic.

Issued to the Bundeswehr, (the unified armed forces of Germany) this jacket sports flecktarn. A camouflage developed from a long line of ancestors dating back to just before WWII.

Many agree flecktarn is one of the best camouflages to wear both in and out of the field. Its one of the few patterns which can be worn on the street without looking like a tool.

Every jacket is special, every jacket is unique, every jacket is your friend. Warehouse Ivan has held enough flecktarn jackets in his life time to recognize the layout of the tag via the subtle color bias.

Over the years there have been many batches of flecktarn BDUs from many different contracts. Some jackets may have slightly different hues in color, or have certain colors stand out more than others. Some minor features will also vary. Jackets have a mix of extra Velcro®, while others will have an extra inside pocket.

This chaotic existence is the beauty of flecktarn.

The power of German engineering.

The bane of Warehouse Ivan’s OCD.

Sizing

All Flecktarn jackets use the Bundeswehr Sizing system

The Bundeswehr breaks down all different heights and widths a healthy human body can obtain, and assigns a number designation (Nr.Gr.) to each size step by step

For jackets you need to measure your total height, and your chest. Jacket measurements are actually 3 centimeters shorter than what the maximum on the tag states, this effects the arm length and body length. If your measurements come between two different height sizes it is recommended to go for the bigger size.

Type

Flecktarn comes in two color versions.

  • Pre-2005: The five color pattern everyone thinks about when they here “flecktarn” vibrant and robust.
    • Pre-2005 variants: Sometime during the 90s, Germany was in high demand for BDUs. So it contracted a handful of different companies for manufacture. Construction is identical, but color is not. With the amount of different batches being produced by different printing equipment, the tone of the five colors varies from company to company.
  • Post-2005: In 2005 the five colors of flecktarn were altered into more muted tones. Since then the colors have stayed free of variation. Every jacket made since 2005 features this muted version of flecktarn.

  • Two snap secured front breast pockets
  • Velcro® wrist fasteners
  • Shoulder passants for epaulettes , rank tabs, or pack straps
  • Ventilated armpits

Varying Specs

  • Color tint/color hue bias can vary on a very small scale (examples of variance pictured)

Condition

    ==BEST VALUE==

    Posted by /v/irgin on Jan 13th 2017

    Bought a few months ago, a great buy for road marches in the summer, or as a light jacket in brisk weather. The ventilation is top notch, especially with the litle armpit holes. The "cigarette pocket" on the upper arm perfectly and snugly houses a pack of your favorite cigarettes, too. Bought "Great" condition and it only had a little weathering. Also perfectly fit for a cheap S.T.A.L.K.E.R. cosplay. Cheeki breeki
