Description

This is a Type III BDU trouser that was used in the US Military till around 1995. This pattern was adopted as a result of issues found with the Type I in hot weather environments and was issued as the hot weather coat. The trouser follows the same basic layout as the Type I with a six pocket layout. The material was changed to 100% Cotton Ripstop. Other than the material change the only other upgrade to the trousers was the addition of a bug flap behind the fly. To keep bugs and other debris from entering the pants when not wearing underwear.

Features:

  • USGI Type III BDU Trousers, Woodland Camo – The Type III coat was issued from 1986-1995 and came about as a result of modifications needed to the Type 1. Major reasons for the update to the Type III was the overall weight of the Type I uniforms fabric and its performance in hot weather environments. During US operations in Grenada in the 80’s troops found the 50/50 NYCO Twill to be too thick and overheating was a common problem. With that information, changes were made to the uniforms that would make them more similar to the previously used Tropical Environment uniform tops and the similarly cut RDF ERDL used in the late 70’s to early 80’s. Changes would be the switch to a 100% Cotton Ripstop fabric. This fabric was overall lighter weight and dried quicker than the 50/50 NYCO Twill. The 100% Cotton Ripstop was also more wind resistant, though the twill fabric used before was warmer overall. The trousers follow the same six pocket layout as the Type I. Other than the material update the only other change to the trousers was the addition of a bug flap as a part of the button fly. The flap is a piece of fabric that buttons over the inside of the fly that protects the wearer from bugs and other debris getting into the trousers.
  • Woodland Camo Pattern – Created and issued from 1981 onwards. Based on the ERDL camo patterns used throughout the Vietnam War and afterwards, specifically the 2nd pattern ERDL, RDF ERDL. The biggest change over earlier ERDL patterns was the enlargement of the patterns and shapes found in ERDL. The colors were also the same with light green, dark green and brown being used. Black would be used in twig shapes across the base colors. Woodland Camo is commonly referred to just as BDU or M81. M81 is an unofficial name for Woodland Camo that comes from its adoption date, 1981. It was used across the US Military till individual service branches replaced it with modern camo patterns.
