U.S. Vietnam War ERDL High/Low Land Jungle Camouflage

Product Description
ERDL Camouflage also known as Leaf Camouflage was first developed in 1947 at the Engineer Research & Development Laboratories. The name is derived from the research facility it was created at [ERDL]. The camo would undergo testing from 1947 up until 1967 when it was first issued to Special Forces and Recondo squads mid Vietnam War. It was not until 1968 that the camo would be mass issued to ordinary Soldiers and Marines. This pattern would come in 2 different color schemes. Green dominate for low lands operations, and brown dominate for high lands operations. The green dominate would be used in areas with more vegetation, usually low land areas in Vietnam, like dense lively jungle and brush places, while high land was more in use on the hilly mountainous terrain since those areas would be drier and browner. The pattern consists of four colors printed in an interlocking sequence. Low land consisted of a green-dominant base, consisting of large organic shapes in olive green and brown, black ‘branches’, and light green ‘leaf highlights”. High Land would consist of the same scheme except the base of the camouflage was a lighter brownish color. The camo pattern would be printed on the standard style tropical jungle fatigues, the granddaddy to what is more commonly found today, the BDUs. ERDL was printed on Third Pattern Jungle Fatigues, exact same cut as the OG-107s. After the Vietnam War, both the jungle style fatigue would be phased out, but the camo would remain. With that said, the next style of combat uniform would be the pre-BDU style RDF uniform, almost identical to BDU except for different cut pockets. Why is this important?! Well the RDF uniform used High Land ERDL Camo fabric.
