MARPAT (short for MARine PATtern) is a digital camouflage pattern in use by the United States Marine Corps. The pattern comprises a number of small pixels of color (rectangular pixels). In theory, it is a far more effective camouflage than standard uniform patterns due to the blending of colors. MARPAT is a trademark of the United States Marine Corps. It is the new camouflage design now used by the Marine Corps. It is also known as the "Digital Pattern" because of its small block pattern rather than the older blob style used. MARPAT was developed from Tigerstripe (not Vietnam issue) with the black and brown swapped. MARPAT has a true pattern replication and within this pattern it also has false replications (variations of the same part of the pattern appearing more than once). In addition to the Marines trademarking the name, they are also in the process of patenting the camouflage patterns . ...more on Wikipedia about "MARPAT"
