View Full Version : Flecktarn Hootchie/Basha
On Ebay at the mo is a Bundeswehr Flecktarn Basha. I've trawled the past threads and have come away more confused than before. Any one got an opinion on this version? As for the others Original Auscam, SASS hootchie or standard British Army DPM? Correct me if I'm wrong but the Army DPM is the lightest and made of Silnylon obviating the need for PU coatings. Any users opinions gratefully received.
I couldn't locate the EBAY listing. I don't have any experience with the Basha, but I own the Flektarn poncho and a copy of our two man pup tent. Both are well made. Ironically, the Flektarn pattern is being phased out for political correctness ( WW2 association.)

What exactly makes in "Ray Mears" or "SAS"? :roll:
What are the Bundeswehr changing their camo to??
All the new Heer kit I've seen is in Flecktarn. Incuding the conceptual gubbins.
What are they thinking of changing to?
I thought that they were moving soon to a computerized pattern similar to Marpat. Could be wrong ...
Dances, Your EBAY Hootchie is made from the same material as my Flektarn poncho. It is very light and packable. I sent several of these up to the activists in the Northern California Redwood forests. They are all still going strong with no fading, tears or rust on the grommets after two years of constant use. If you want to be inconspicuous, Flektarn is one of my favourites. It certainly worked up there. But , we had 6' tall groundstory ferns and 10 story high redwoods. That is a fair price. My ponchos new are @ $35 USD
