Hi, the PECOC programme was quite complex with various avenues explored. The uniforms above was part of the test, the most produced uniforms were the woodland, Desert and also Arid which then became Arid PR. The majority of the sets above from the desert Burgundy to the Orange and the far right, the All Terrain (Greys), only one set of trousers and shirts were produced. As I have collected this over the years more and more PECOC items have come to the fore which I never thought was part of the trial (I’ll put some pics on) also, Windproof smocks, I have a number of these also which some of them are one off items.

in terms of the webbings and vests, the Hybrid DPM was the most common which evaded the most of the slashing by the MOD on release. I would say the Arid side of this is rare but rare rare they Coyote Tan. Again, with the vests, a number of commercial options were also tested as part of PECOC ie SOLO vests.

wow didn't like the 3 pairs of trousers with the light spotty/blobby patterns, glad they went the MTP,  It would be interesting to see where the patterns  intended use was, the light greeny coloured one must have only worked in a very small area perhaps grasslands?

i still like the pecoc, you can see they really tried to stick with the DPM theme!

I just remembered, way back in the late 80's possibly 90's the clothing company S.A.S.S. (famous for making quality SAS style jackets with loads more pockets), they had an option to use military grade "Urban DPM" that looked almost identical to the grey version you're showing.

It's funny how grey, white, and black camos like the US "ACU" pop up every few year for a test, only to be proved it's not very good...yet again,  lol
