TROUSERS, MEN'S, FIELD, M-65 / WOODLAND PATTERN
The Woodland Pattern Camouflage, officially known as M-81, is a camouflage pattern that was introduced by the US military in 1981. It replaced the earlier ERDL pattern, and was an adaptation of its predecessor, rescaling the pattern to make it more effective at longer distances, helping to break up the silhouette of the wearer. The M-81 features a four-color, high-contrast design with irregular green, brown, black, and khaki shapes. This pattern was designed to work effectively in various environments, particularly in temperate woodland terrain. Over the years, the M-81 has become one of the most recognized and widely used camouflage patterns in the world, adopted by various military forces and often replicated in civilian fashion.
