Tiger Stripe - Late War Dense

The Late War Dense pattern is believed to one of the last tiger stripe camouflages introduced during the Vietnam War.1 It consisted of four colors (black, dark green and brown, all with a pea green outline) that were silk-screened or vat dyed on to the fabric. The matching jacket, vest, trousers and boonie hat pictured were featured on page 169 of the book Tiger Patterns.
