This completely reversible Smock, has all the fine details of a type-1 smock. Made from waterproof cotton poplin material, the detailed of this difficult print is probably one of the best reproductions. Other characteristic details include HBT lined pockets, Elastic cuffs and waist band, machine-sewn eyelets and drawstring.
This new pattern of camouflage, originally thought to be a bad case of reprints by troops on the front, was found to be a very effective one in hazy environments. The Green side was used in Spring and Summer, were as the brown side was worn in Autumn and Winter, although period photos do show otherwise. Troops of the Hermann Göring Division were issued with a large amounts of this camo, probably after a barter agreement with SS, in exchange for Splinter-B camouflage for their newly formed SS-Paratrooper regiments.
This pattern is sometimes also referred to as burred edge pattern.
