Rhodesian Army Brushstroke Keko Hat


- +

The Rhodesian Brushstroke pattern is legendary, from it's inception during the Rhodesian Bush War, to later service throughout Africa, a variant to this day remains the standard camo of the Zimbabwean Army. At one point, the pattern was noted as being so effective that it was in contention to replace the M83 Woodland pattern for the United States Marine Corps.

We're proud to offer this outstanding pattern, reproduced in the same cut that was issued to members of the Rhodesian Security Forces.
