Camouflage of the World: Polish Wz.89 "Puma" Camouflage.



hey everybody welcome back to another episode of camouflage of the world I might be and today I'm gonna be taking a look at the Polish wz 89 Puma camouflage so this is the last design used in communist occupied Poland and it was used until about 1993 as you can see it's a two-colored reptilian-looking camouflage pattern with little splotches and stuff it was kind of adopted off of a previous polish camouflage that came on 1968 which is kind of like a salt and pepper looking thing again not really for camouflage in the sense of like old-school camouflage at world war ii but in a sense it kind of defeating infrared or night-vision devices that was the whole idea behind it this one actually works fairly well as a camouflage pattern it's got kind of the dark green on the light green background very comfortable material to be honest it's very very nice I think it's all cotton it feels like it's all cotton if it's got nylon or probably in it it's very well hidden this is actually a field jacket or a heavier coat it's got a nice quilted lining and pretty hard to find the actual uniforms like the shirt and the pants from this era because most of them were sold off as surplus or used there's still several patterns of like little little backpacks I have the gloves the gloves are readily available but for this video we're gonna actually be taking a look at a bigger piece like this coat right here so yeah again this pattern was adopted in 1989 officially by the Air Force in the army some of these have really cool buttons like that and you can see there's a pocket right here there's two pockets and then I believe there's a couple of internal pockets too right there and they're pretty interesting camouflage pattern again only used for a few years I think it's cool it's one of my favorite kind of quirky looking camo patterns and if I ever get a Field Jacket that'll actually fit me I'm gonna actually use that as my fall and spring jacket because it just looks so cool but yeah very interesting you guys have probably seen this before floating around it literally looks like a reptilian like alligator skin or something a lot of people think it's really cool a lot of people don't think it's actually a military pattern that don't know much about military surplus stuff which makes it great for like just wearing around because it looks like kind of a weird designed from a non-military company yeah I really have liked this pattern for a long time and it's one of the most unique I don't think there's anything else really quite like it I'm getting get some nice close-up shots for you and kind of see the material is a heavier 12 quilted inside yeah I mean there's really not much more to say about this because it was only used for about four years and it was replaced by the wz 93 Pantera camouflage this was called the Puma pattern by Polish soldiers and stuff it's kind of a it's kind of a non official name but it's what people called it english-speaking people call it like the reptile or something or the alligator camouflage I've heard it call all things I call it the Potomac camo so it's gonna be this video is gonna be nice and short seeing as how it had such a short service life and yet it's such a cool-looking weird pattern but yeah so if you got any questions feel free to comment or you look it up on Facebook it might be the page and then send a message there consider supporting this channel on patreon and it helps me fund this channel and get cool things to make videos of like this and the other videos just shooting videos ballistic tests etc etc so dollar month not that expensive helps me out I do find my channel about 99 percent out of pocket but the extra crowdfunding really does help offset the cost and allows me to do cool stuff so consider becoming a supporter on there if not that's totally fine I appreciate you watching go ahead and smash that subscribe button and click the thumbs up on this video make sure you click the alert Bell to if when I got new videos that are coming out as YouTube sometimes there's an alert ship so you can stay in the loop alright thanks for watching everybody hope you enjoyed this video and learn something if you ever seen this before you'll kind of appreciate this video if you haven't I'm glad to open your your world up to this fantastic weird quirky camouflage pattern thanks for watching everybody I'll see you next time
