The Rhodesian Security Forces transitioned into the Armed Forces of Zimbabwe with very few initial changes. Most of the old Rhodesian units remained intact and continued to wear their old insignia and even to keep their old unit designations for several years, although units with particularly strong political associations to the Smith regime (Selous Scouts, RLI) were disbanded. Stocks of Rhodesian Army camouflage also continued to be worn until around 1983-84, particularly by units operating in Mozambique to protect the oil pipeline.
As far back as 1968, the British South African Police (BSAP) of the Rhodesian government apparently experimented with a different type of vertical brushstroke camouflage design, possibly influenced by the camouflage patterns of the Portuguese. Although the Rhodesian pattern was never officially adopted, original drawings and possibly print screens must have been retained by the developers, as the government of Zimbabwe would later re-introduce variations of this pattern around 1984. Two color versions were produced, with green and brown stripes on a khaki background for the dry season, and on a pale green background for the wet season, of which the dry season saw significantly heavier production and use (including by the 5th Brigade in 1982). The styling of all Zimbabwean military uniforms is virtually the same as those worn during the Rhodesian era, although there would be far less consistency to the camouflage patterns themselves, with some having lighter or darker dyes. Locally this pattern was given the nickname "monkey hand" and was worn by units of the Army until around 1996. This design would later influence that worn by the South African Homeland of Transkei.

Whether you are going up against the Wild 7 or want to look like a trendy late 90s NYC sk8er kid, you cannot go wrong with this pattern. Hoodie looks great in person and feels quality.
Will definitely buy from Camo HQ again
My wife and daughter love them
I originally bought these for football then I started using them for wrestling and track then on hikes through the brush and river because Rhodesian camo they held up
Very comfortable to wear, even in the hottest days. It's soft and very breathable and very easy to care for. The ink doesn't fade over repeated washings or hard use.
Once again thank you David I am pleased with your product and will be ordering again soon!
Very nice. Color and pattern match my shelter half and M-43 hat. Cold not be happier.
Great Camo shirt
