The unique Rhodesian camouflage was worn by the security forces of Rhodesia and the special forces of South Africa. It was highly sought after by all troops due to its effectiveness in the African bush.
Green Leader LLC believes that this camouflage pattern was part of the unifying process between the different races in Africa - the uniform made the wearer equal in battle and duty, irregardless of his or her skin color.
Made in Pretoria, South Africa
