The Germans became the first real pioneers of widespread camouflage patterns throughout World War 2. In particular, the Waffen SS despite being relatively small to begin with took up the lions share in the number of designs employed. Erbenmuster or otherwise better known as 'Pea dot' was first issued in 1944. Unlike its predecessor camos, this uniform was not designed to be reversible and the camo intended to be used all year round.
These reproductions do a pretty decent job in build - made in a unique cotton twill pattern just like the originals makes them pretty robust. One key difference to note is the originals had a 5th colour - another slightly different hue of green which seems to have been omitted. Metal buttons line the front with a metal hook at the top to create a sharp collar. The waist has a series of holes which enables the German webbing belt of the day to be worn through mounted hooks to support its weight & position (hooks not included). Pockets on the chest and waist adorn the front to allow some extra utility in the field. A very unique looking pattern that went on to inspire future camouflage designs.
An essential bit of clothing for anyone doing a WW2 German impression whether it be for reenactments, airsoft players or period film productions.
