Overdyed Tiger Camouflage garments were never issued, but appeared on the secondary market and in personal wardrobes quickly as Tiger camo pieces filtered their way into civilian spaces. Just about every imaginable garment has surfaced over the years, produced by local tailors for both Vietnamese and US forces. The Real McCoy's have recreated it to the extreme, with a hand-printed custom Tiger camo that is then fully overdyed black before being sewn together.
The Real McCoy's had to hand-print this camo due to the size of the print to correctly reproduce it, onto a custom 100% cotton base. The base fabric was carefully designed to replicate the rough fabrics of the time, while being up to their high standards.
The weave is a 100% cotton twill - light enough to breathe well and feel good during the hotter seasons, but not so light as to feel insubstantial when the weather cools down a bit. The black over-dye will fade with time, revealing the more vibrant tiger camo beneath.
This hooded parka features a brass Talon zipper with a handmade glass bead detail on the zipper pull.
