The Netherlands Fractal Pattern was developed as a collaboration project between the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and the Dutch Ministry of Defence in order to replace all the camouflage patterns in use by the Dutch military.
In 2008, research and development into a new camouflage pattern began with five patterns being analyzed, consisting of fractal, desert, woodland, urban and universal. Later on, eight patterns were being studied for potential adoption, which includes universal, multicamo for use in more than one environment and the others are terrain-based patterns. The criteria being used for the adoption of a new pattern must show its effectiveness, the psychological effect on the user and its uniqueness and distinctiveness from other camouflage patterns being used by other countries for consideration to adopt the pattern in Dutch military service. According to Ben Vlasman, head of the Joint Soldier Systems Knowledge Centre (Dutch: Joint Kenniscentrum Militair & Uitrusting), the NFP was made in order to be made recognizable to the public aside from the military.
The NFP was first sighted publicly in 2009 in Army Day events. It was reported in 2011 that NFM was offering combat clothing made with NFP camo pattern. In 2012, a solicitation was made for manufacturers to make the NFP in combat uniforms. Among the requirements made were for the clothes to be made with pattern while using 180 grams of Flame Retardant fabric with insect repellent qualities and an initial delivery of 13,500 sets in the first year in NFP Green.
In 2013, it was reported that some operators with Korps Commandotroepen's 104 Commando Company (Dutch: 104 Commandotroepencompagnie) were wearing NFP camos during anti-terrorist exercises in Israel.
The Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported that the NFP was adopted into service on October 26, 2014. At the time, the Netherlands Marine Corps was using U.S. Woodland uniforms, but they are expected to eventually phase NFP into service as well. The pattern was officially issued to the 4th Company of the combined German-Dutch 414 Tank Battalion during ILÜ Land Op 2019. These were in tanker coveralls. The rest of the Dutch military will be issued the NFP throughout 2020.
The interim uniform in NFP, based on the Dutch marines' combat uniform, to be worn until 2023. With the adoption of the Revision Baltskin Viper P6N ballistic helmets in 2019 with a full fielding expected by 2022, issued green helmets with the Dutch Army will have issued NFP Green/Tan helmet covers.
During Enforce Tac 19, numerous manufacturers like Berghaus and Marom Dolphin, the latter for their Fusion load carrying system under the Improved Operational Soldier System (IOSS) (Dutch: Verbeterd Operationeel Soldaten Systeem) (VOSS), offered military gear with NFP camo pattern as an option. The VOSS in NFP camo was also on display at the NEDS exhibition in Rotterdam on November 28, 2019.
The first use of the NFP in combat operations was with Dutch troops operating under Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan in January 2020.
On August 10, 2020, it was announced that full adoption of the NFP was pushed back from the intended 2023 deadline due to a contract dispute. Dutch forces will continue to use Multicam camo uniforms as an interim solution if deployed outside of the Netherlands in contingency areas.

My new Danish M-84 snow camo hooded sweatshirt is really unique and comfortable! The fleece lining inside makes for a warm and cozy wear around the house. It`s a quality made item that will be in my closet for a long time to come, and I`m trying to decide on the next one to buy, so many choices at Camo HQ!
I love the design of these joggers. The colors are a little lighter however. The cut is what attracts me the most and the quality. I have advised the owner to consider adding zippered back pocket and deeper side pockets.
So Glad to have this WW2 camo in a modern cut and a big .3X to fit me. Rugged and well made also.
I am a repeat customer. I love these jogger's cut and camo pattern. I own 6 pairs of camos and hoodies made by this company. The cons are, that the joggers have shallow pockets and are in desperate need of a back zippered pocket. I hope that Dave will eventually make the changes. Still, I love these joggers, they make you look great!
Alex NY State.
The material ratio is a big selling point for me,the normal BDUs with "extravagant" colors and schemes,fade,badly. It's also kind of hard to find the erbsenmuster print in anything other than repro trousers,smoks and tunics.
It's a soft comfy hoodie,with great colors,I definitely recommend,especially when you Rückzug zurück nach Deutschland!
Arrived exactly as I was hoping it would be. I wear a Large in other hoodies, Large in this once fits perfectly. Very comfortable. Quality stitching and perfect print.
Super warm, comfortable, soft, and keeps you invisible to commie NVGs
Fantastic shorts and they look so cool and they’re very comfortable and they look cool in the gym to make you try harder
Everything it was advertised to be. Good quality and I love the selection of camouflage from all time periods. I own 6 pairs of shorts of various camo patterns. A great website!!!
I really like this hoodie , has a soft fleece lining, not too heavy , yet kept me warm on a windy day when temperature was in the 40's . Purchased the joggers to match and bought a second set in the NWU Type I pattern
I own about six pairs o joggers from this maker. I live the cut and fit. However there are three issues that would make these joggers perfect. The pockets are shallow and when you sit, whatever is in your pocket falls out. So it needs deeper pockets. Similar joggers come with a back pocket with zipper. A zippered back pocket giver it a very practical attribute. Lastly the draw string is short and too thin. Otherwise these are very comfortable and would be perfect if it hand the upgrades mentioned above.
