MARPAT may be one of the most interesting stories in the rather special history of the United States Marine Corps. Developed out of a field of potential camouflage applicants that included both tiger stripe and brush stroke (yes that brush stroke). MARPAT was the CADPAT inspired camouflage that took the USMC into the digital age. At least as far as their camouflage goes. And as an added bonus this MARPAT is also a little froggy.
'FROG' in this case means Flame resistant organizational gear. During OIF/OEF, a lot of military garments ended up switching over to FR materials due to their wider availability and ease of integrating into combat uniforms. At first, there were layers that went underneath pre-existing combat uniforms, like masks, gloves, and undies. Eventually, it just made sense to make everything FR. And since the marines are special (interpret that how you want), they got a few special layering garments as well.
These Desert MARPAT Combat pants are the best combination of a sexy and effective camouflage with the bonus of being flame resistant. Its features include a sewn in stretch elastic waist and buttonable elastic openings in the thigh pocket. Its two hand pockets, two rear pockets and two ankle pockets round out its load carrying ability.
