not to be a party pooper but it is illegal to have this pattern camouflage in your posession if you are not a serving member of the SANDF (regular or reserve).

I have been trying to get hold of some as well and this is the answer i get.

Hi,
As an ex-member of the SAPolice that is correct. Before the law prohibited a person from owning any cammo material or anything that looked like it.

It has now changed to you may own cammo as long as it is not classed as active cammo, active cammo is anything still worn by the police or defence force.

So you can legally own SAPolice 1st pattern cammo but not the 2nd pattern as it is still worn. The same applies to the defence force cammo patterns.


That is the law but it is up to you to make your own mind up. You more than likely would only get a fine, but why take the chance.

If you are outside the RSA have as much as want.

Just to add my two cents here. All SANDF cammo uniforms are state property and as such may not be sold or kept. My fiance has to give back her uniform when she "klaar uit" at the end of the month.

One kit issue costs R 25-30k, that is the reason why it has to go back.

Quite easily. My NZ Army kit costs about ~NZ$6000 all up which is roughly equivalent to the rand value.

Now that includes items such as your: pack, pack liner, pack harness, webbing, wet weather gear, three changes of uniform, thermal gear, 2 x sets of boots, socks, 2 x sets of trainers, "hoochie" (little pup tent kind of thing), several different pairs of gloves, entrenching tool, water bottles, dixies, Swiss army knife, folding saw, toggle rope, cups canteen, hexi cooker, ground mat, sleeping bag, bivvy bag, PT shorts, PT shirts, numerous socks, numerous jerseys, rank slides, J-hat, beret, badge, SD's (service dress, which consists of shirts, trou, shoes and tunic + associated badges) etc etc etc.

The main thing I believe, is the material which some of these items are made out of - the waterproof / warm stuff is very expensive and contributes a lot to the overall cost.

All that strapping on the pack would be nice and taped up though
