What I know is that there was an overlap between AOR1 and Nat Gear around 06. However, I am not sure if the latter has ever been considered as a potential all around desert pattern to replace the 3 Colors desert camouflage.

Some items like chest rigs or packs have been produced by manufacturers like EI or mystery ranch, but when considering how rare they are, it was probably limited to a short T&E run.

I've seen testing items from both LBT, mystery ranch and eagle. I personally have a uw rig by mayflower.

A couple of variants of the nat gear sc/scII pattern where produced. Mostly beyond sets have surfaced. And mostly tops for some reason.

So where there two patterns of Natgear? One looks way darker than mine, unless mine is super faded. But it looks like that's how its supposed to be.

Ya i knew Eagle and LBT made some gear but it was for T&E for DG at Dam Neck, atleast thats what i was told. I know some newer companies such as Mayflower and Ferro have made some Natgear but i dont think they would be as valuable or collectable as the older T&E Natgear. As long as you pay the licensing fee, im sure most companies will make you a custom order if you ordered a handful.

Ya i begged and begged to have the people where i found this look in the back to see if there were pants, or other uniforms laying around lol. I found this guy for less than it would cost to eat lunch at McDonalds ;)

Yes there have been 2 patterns, rumour has it that crye might have also had a run of combat bdu's in nat gear. Now the Tommy V. pic does look like's he's wearing a combat shirt instead of traditional steel bdu top.

The pattern was supplied by a third party, I begged beyond back in the day to make me a set, and they would as long as I supplied fabric.

Beyond had some other cool trial things as well, for instance a mossy oaky pattern, variants of m.c. that now closely resemble arid m.c., cadpat, tigerstripe and loads of dig2/3 variants. It's my understanding that for each pattern only a handfull of sets where made.
