PAVN Scarves for sale

I recently acquired a section of Vietnam era cargo parachute in the "duck hunter" pattern. This fabric was prized by the VC and NVA for scarves and capes. Elite units would sometimes even make entire uniforms out of it.

I will have a section of it with me at Hac Bao and have already cut several scarves from it. They measure approx 1x4.5 feet and were worn as seen here:

I will be selling the scarves for $10 each to participants at Op: Hac Bao. If you will not be attending the Op and would like one, I will sell them for $15+shipping.

Post up here if you want one so I have an idea of how many to bring.

A required item of VC kit this year will be the checkered scarf. All VC will be required to wear one. You can get authentic reproductions here:

Alternately, you can simply go to the fabric store and get yourself some appropriate checkered fabric and make your own. Avoid red based scarves as to avoid confusion with red wound rags.


So just to make sure, this "duck hunter" pattern is an official option to the checkered scarf.

If so, I'll take three of them.

I think we still need the checkered scarf. The para material was used all over the VC: tied to ruck packs, hats, boonies.

OK... I won't buy them for my buddies then.

I would still like one for myself though.

Thanks,
