Frontenac was the best maker of replica cadpat.

Parklands is, and always has been, the worst, by far. I have one of their new "top quality" cadpat boonies sitting in front of me right now. Total garbage. Paper thin material, colors are horrid, and they put the seam in the front! If I hadn't have gotten it at the wholesale rate, I'd be pissed, hell, I'm kinda pissed even at the wholesale rate. I can't imagine paying anywhere near MSRP for it. Hell, even the wholesale rate seemed a bit much.

Parklands cadpat cordura isnt too bad however. Their replica Tac Vest is great. I've done a side by side comparison, and the only differences are the mesh on the replica is od while the real one is cadpat, and the color of the cadpat is slightly off, but not very noticable.

There is a company taking over frontenac's cadpat line, just cant recall their name at the moment. However, sounds like we can expect some fine work from them.

Canuck:



Woodland:


Just to let you know, one of the guys who works on these patterns is the father of digital camouflage. He's responsible for DualTex which led CADPAT, MARPAT and ARPAT being developed. The woodland is a decently close sample of CADPAT. Their Canuck camouflage is their take on what CADPAT should be.

I have the Gen2 frontnac, that was put on the market in 2003. I'm using it since then and it never faded or changed color. Compared to the real cadpat, mine is very close in color and patern. The only difference is the type of babric, wich is thinner and non ripstop.

I'd say, compared to many other copy, Frontenac cadpat was better in terme of color retention and color exactitude.

For comparaison, the boonie hat in my signature is Parkland, and it's already faded to shit after less than 2 years.

The company Surplus IG sells the follower (?) Cadpat BDU to Frontenac.

The BDU is more cut as the real but not identic as the real.

Anyone who has bought it or tested yet and can rate them?

A member here in ASC bought one and he is not pleased. See thread: http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=58975

something you guys probably dont realize is that even the issue cadpat varies a little bit, you have some that are more "brown" than others, and some that are more blurry than others ect.

of all the cadpat that i was issued, i only have 1 tunic, and 1 set of pants that match, sure they may be little differences, but i realize it

i'll get some pics up if im not too lazy

Same here, I only have one set that matches- I've seen so much variation in issue CADPAT, there was one set a local sergeant has here that's almost blue.

Parklands cadpat is a waste of money unless its for paintball, or their arid cadpat. Their arid cadpat nearly dead on, but it fades horribly after only one wash.

So Parkland's Cadpat has also not become better from then to now?

Anyone who know then the new Frontenac will be avaible on the market?
