About Woodland MARPAT Camouflage
Woodland MARPAT, introduced by the U.S. Marine Corps in late 2002, features a pixelated camouflage pattern ideal for forest environments. It combines greens, browns, and black to optimize concealment. This pattern, marked by the “Eagle, Globe, and Anchor” emblem, distinctly identifies Marines and acts as a deterrent.
It has been a standard issue for woodland operations to date, effectively blending Marines into their surroundings. Woodland MARPAT has seen extensive use in various conflicts, including operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, where its effectiveness in diverse terrains proved invaluable for Marine operations.
The Wide Brim Boonie Hat
The boonie hat, aka bucket cover, sun hat, and jungle hat, is a wide-brimmed, lightweight cover originally designed for military use in hot climates. Favored by the US military, including the Marine Corps, this durable hat offers protection from the sun and rain.
Quality boonies feature branch loops for camouflage and storage, plus a chin strap for a secure fit. Evolved from military gear, the boonie cap is now popular for fishing, hunting, hiking, and backpacking due to its versatility and adaptability to outdoor conditions. Its design, including a vented crown and flexible brim, makes it ideal for hot weather and adventurous activities. Boonies have been widely adopted in both military and civilian contexts.
