About US Woodland Camouflage

The U.S. Woodland camouflage pattern, colloquially known as M81, was the primary camouflage of the United States Marine Corps from 1981 until its replacement by digital MARPAT in 2002. 

Featuring a high-contrast, four-color design in green, brown, sand, and black, it was first issued on the Battle Dress Uniform. Woodland camo was also used by the Army, Navy, Air Force, and State defense forces. It saw action in various conflicts including the invasions of Grenada and Panama, the Persian Gulf War, the War in Afghanistan, and the Iraq War. 

The Woodland pattern is an enlarged version of the brown-dominant ERDL pattern, expanded by 60%. This increase enhances its effectiveness over greater distances. This change reflects a strategic shift from the close-range combat of South Vietnam to broader battlefield engagements.

The Marine Corps Eight Point Utility Cover

The 8-point utility cover is a key component of the US Marine Corps and Navy uniforms. This hat merges functionality with tradition. It resembles a baseball cap and is crafted for a sharp look. 

Eight-pointed covers evolved from US Army field caps and railroad engineer caps. 

Early Marine Corps versions were made of herringbone twill (HBT) until approximately 1959 and later cotton sateen. Modern versions are made from a durable nylon and cotton ripstop or a warmer twill fabric, catering to diverse environments. 

This utility cover, featuring ventilation eyelets and embroidered with the Marine Corps EGA, continues to embody the enduring spirit and history of the USMC.
