The Beo Gam print is loosely based on the 1940s duck hunter camoflage. Camoflage in the U.S. military has not been standardised until the late 1960s and camo clothing was often private purchase.
The original Beo Gam has been produced in a small scale in the early 1960s in Japan and issued to Special Forces in South East Asia. Translated Beo Gam means "leopard" and has very distinctive purple spots troughout the pattern.
