The IDF Is Now Looking To Adopt Camouflage Uniforms

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Israeli Camo

The IDF Technological and Logistics Directorate, in association with IDF Ground Forces, has just stated a pilot program to select a new camouflage field uniform. Up until this point, IDF uniforms were issued in OD Green, but “operational considerations and “camouflage simulations” drove the decision to opt for a camouflaged uniform.

Several hundred troops, from units within the Airborne Basic Training base, Bardelas co-ed infantry unit, 8200 Intelligence unit, and others are testing new uniforms, which consists of two separate camouflage variants in use with 3 shirt styles and 1 combat pant style. The uniforms feature rank, flag, unit, and combat solider patches, and are made of “advanced” breathable wicking fabrics.

Interestingly, MultiCam, a standard camouflage choice of US and Allied forces deployed in the Middle East region, was determined as not a good fit for Israeli terrain; while Southern Israel is vastly arid, Northern Israel, along with Southern Lebanon and Syria, is green and wooded.
