Like the US Military's M81 Woodland camo, British DPM has had a remarkably long service history in several military organizations worldwide, particularly in countries that were previously British colonies. DPM can be traced all the way back to the hand painted Denison smock used by British commandos in the 1940s. Early patterns continued to be used for some field uniforms until it was more widely adopted in 1968. Until 2016, DPM was the standard camo pattern used by the British Armed Forces, and is still the issued pattern in many countries. And this time around we got our hands on some Desert DPM variants.
Desert DPM originally consisted of subdued sand and khaki hues when it was first developed in the late 1980's. However, some rather intrepid Middle Eastern countries figured that the original four toned desert pattern worked pretty darn well. Thus the British had to replace the sand and khaki hues with a light brown on sand derivative. Something to do with a Storm in the Desert.

With numerous adjustment points and abundant storage provided by its five pockets, these pants are designed for utility. The DDPM camo enables the user to blend seamlessly into an arid environment while still allowing them to be worn on the street without looking like a LARPer.
