Combat shirts in traditional woodland-style camo patterns are a bit rarer on the surplus market, so this was a nice surprise from the land of tulips. We don’t know whether we can get more of these, so treat them as a one-off batch and get yours now.

Combat shirts in traditional woodland-style camo patterns are a bit rarer on the surplus market, so this was a nice surprise from the land of tulips. We don’t know whether we can get more of these, so treat them as a one-off batch and get yours now.

Features

This shirt has a 1/4 zipper in the front together with a stand-up collar. The collar is lined with the torso material to make it more comfortable. The outer material of the collar is a bit rough and might create some suspicious marks on your neck. Both sleeves feature an upper arm pocket with a Velcro flap, and the cuffs have Velcro adjustment. The camouflage pattern is known as Disruptive Pattern Material (DPM).

Materials

The materials on the shirts we checked were as follows. The body: 64% Viscose FR, 24% para-aramid, 10% polyamide, and 2% antistatic fibers. The sleeves: 66% modacrylic, 38% cotton FR, and 2% antistatic fibers. FR refers to a fire-retardant fabric. However, since this is military surplus, we cannot guarantee this anymore. So, please don’t set yourself on fire. These have been manufactured in other material combinations as well, so don’t be alarmed if there is something else on the tag. They should be all pretty similar in characteristics in any case.

Note! These combat shirts were originally treated with a biocide that contains permethrin, which is used as an insecticide. The treatment has been done in accordance with the EU regulations. However, permethrin can irritate the skin of some people. We don’t know how many times these have been washed so it is impossible to say how much of it is left. Nor can we guarantee that these will repel anything anymore.

The shirt will not leak so much permethrin that our legislation even required us to mention any possible environmental effects. However, we still recommend avoiding soaking the shirt in natural bodies of water for extended periods of time. Permethrin is toxic to aquatic organisms in large quantities so we don’t need to put it there in small quantities either. Neither should you use the shirt as a blanket or a chew toy for your pets, because permethrin isn’t good for them either.

Choosing the right size

The sizes are given in the “simple” size. In case it isn’t that simple to you, we added some extra info in the charts below. The measurements are the actual garment measurements, NOT recommended uses sizes. Since these are used, the measurements might have changed a bit depending on how much and how the individual shirts have been washed and worn. Since these are stretchy, it shouldn’t be a disaster.

Note that these are made for soldiers whose body shape is more of a V and not a beer keg. So the waist circumference is a lot smaller than the chest. These should be fairly tight-fitting in any case but don’t treat it as a corset. Because of the cut, the chest is pretty much impossible to measure, which is probably why even the manufacturer only gave the waist measurement.

Condition

Dutch military surplus. Some have seen a bit more use, some less. So they can be a bit stretched and the camo colors a bit faded. They are all intact and clean though.

First time I got a product in bad shape from Varusteleka. Shirt has been washed to death basically and the previous owner forgot his ballpoint pen in the sleeve pocket before handing it in. So there's blue ink stains all over the sleeve. Originally this was a good quality item I think, so it should still be good enough as a summer work shirt at least.

A few notes on permethrin - it's also toxic to cats. Here in the States, it's commonly applied to dogs and horses for flea/tick/insect issues. It's also used as a landscaping pesticide, it'll kill ticks in your yard, but I don't condone that as it kills the good bugs along with the bad.

But it's the best defense in the world against ticks. Living in MD I treat my footwear, socks, pants, and shirts with the stuff. One backpacking trip a buddy found a dozen ticks on him over the course of the hike, I was hiking right in front of him and had zero.

You can also make "tick bombs" with the stuff. Treat a bunch of cotton balls, and stuff them into a toilet paper tube. Scatter those throughout the woods. Mice will use the cotton to line their nests, and it'll kill the tick in that next, attacking the ticks at an earlier growth stage. DNR has supposedly done this in some areas.
