    It doesn't help with the picture quality of a potato.

    Its not "SWAT" camo. Its urban camouflage. That's why you can't find it. IHOP linked you straight to it, its up to you whether you believe it or not, but he gave you the right thing.

    Perhaps the guy you bought it from would sweat up a nasty amount in them. Maybe over the years that white turned to a new shade of grey. As long as it doesn't have another fifty shades of grey....... (<-GROSS) I think the one IHOP linked will work fine.

    If you want it to match your current pair you could also wash it with dark clothes. That way the white will eventually turn to your preffered shade.

    It's urban BDUs. It's not rare and it's unlikely any major SWAT unit uses it. I suppose somebody probably does though.

    alright

    the guy i got it from runs a pretty big store so i dont know if he washed it because everything in there has a musty smell from all the wooden shelves

    You should see if he has an extra shift key laying around somewhere. Looks to me like you're short one. While you're at it, try to pick up a period, comma, and question mark too. Whoever sold you that keyboard ripped you off good.

    You have to. It's in the rules and it's one that I enforce pretty strictly. Please start or you might find your posts mysteriously vanishing.

    Regardless of my previous lack of grammatical correctness, i've got a list of facts about that jacket 1.its not an urban jacket like ihop posted a link for (the patterns and colors are different) 2. the photo is the same as what I am seeing 3. it hasn't been washed and therefore there has never been any white on it.

    With those facts in mind does anyone know anything about a pair of pants or a hat or helmet cover.

    I will reiterate what I said before.
    1. THAT IS URBAN CAMOUFLAGE. It is not special, it is not unique, it is not rare. It is however, Urban.
    2. The photo cannot be what you are seeing, due to an obvious amount of graying because of the camera, and terrible picture quality.

    There is NO WHITE on the camo whatsoever and I know the musty, old surplus store I got it from HADN'T WASHED IT. If the guy that owns that store washed everything he had in there he wouldn't have any revenue from selling the stuff. I will say it again with clarity THAT PICTURE IS ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THE REAL THING. I HAVE DONE VERY EXTENSIVE searches through urban camo and I CAN NOT FIND IT ANYWHERE.:mad:

    I just searched for urban camo and for the first time ever i've seen it. It's French Urban Camo. But thats the only picture of it and even if i search french urban camo there is still only one picture. Nothing in the shopping section just one picture.
