Item Description

Featured another rare South Vietnamese early camouflage hat. 6 pieces-constructed jungle hat. Made from a small Mom and Pop sewing shop. No maker’s tag. Beautiful and shiny blood cake camouflage fabric. It is one of the two rarest camouflage schemes from the Vietnam War, this Huyet/blood cake camo and the other one being the first SVN Marine tiger stripe camo pattern!

This Huyet (blood cake) camo pattern has been incorrectly called by various names PINKS, PURPLES, and even BULLET PROOF for decades specially within the VN collecting society due to their limited sources of information.   The South Vietnamese gave it  a unique and correct name of this camo pattern as  HUYET (in English is literally BLOOD CAKE or CURD) since its birth. This better-designated name actually got its “name” from the main and dominant brown color like blood curd.  Thus it  was called/identified as HUYET correctly since it first appeared in the early 60’s by the Vietnamese troops. During this time frame, the SVN Paratroopers and LLDBs (Vietnamese Special Forces) almost EXCLUSIVELY wore this particular pattern. The Marines wore the tiger stripe and the  BDQ (Rangers) wore OD green.

Excellent to near Mint. About size 60.
