Flecktarn comes in two, slightly different color variants.

  • Pre-2005: The classic five color pattern everyone thinks about when they hear 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. Because of this 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 parka made since 2005 features this muted version of Flecktarn. 

    After a period of rather dull uniform offerings from everyone’s (save France) favorite military, the Bundeswehr developed probably the most stylish yet effective camouflage for mainland Europe. A testament to this is its continued use in the Ukraine conflict today.

    Tracing its development history, the origins of Flecktarn can be found in the "Erbsenmuster" and "Platanenmuster" camouflage patterns originally developed back in the 1940’s. The “pea-dot” style of camouflage developed some controversy around it when it was first being introduced to the Bundeswehr due its rather… Historical origins. But effectiveness is effectiveness — don’t ask the US where ERDL originated from either.

    Not only are these field shirts stylish, they are also incredibly functional. The two front breast pockets can hold a variety of small admin supplies or a love letter to the cute Fräulein next door. The ventilated armpits can help keep you cool during the hottest days out hiking or on the flat range. And with some velcro wrist fasteners and storm flap and you got yourself a versatile field shirt for a variety of conditions...

    This version of the jacket features a cut and construction similar to the Tropentarn Field Shirt, with button closures, and armpit vents.

        Flecktarn fever...

        Third purchase and another lovely field shirt to compliment the wardrobe. Decided to get this in a size 8 and the fit is definitely better. I still like having my regular field shirt in a 9 though, nice for layering. Same with the parka(BUY THE PARKA it is simply amazing). Great quality, as I've come to expect and shipped quickly. This site has become my new addiction.

        The fit is large but the item is of good quality

        I returned the shirt I ordered because it was too large for me. I recommend going down a size or two if you want a fit more like a regular fit flannel shirt or a work shirt. The zippers are a nice touch, and the sewing work is sturdily done. I would recommend to anyone who wanted a cool camouflage shirt for hot weather activity.

        One of my favorite jackets

        This thing is awesome, arrived in perfect condition, fits great, comfortable material and stylish enough to pair well with a hoodie. One of my favorite light jackets/range shirts. Keep in mind, Germany’s idea of “hot weather” isn’t desert conditions so this field shirt’s more suited to mild heat but still a great shirt for fucking around in the woods (tough enough material to not worry about rips/tears) Pay attention to size guides about what length to get and you’ll be golden.

        Highly recommend.
