you prety much wont have much luck. Its basically illegal to sell issue cadpat. I searched high n low and only found a top had to buy "milspecs" pamts and boy are they dark in colour. Yer best option for issue will.be keep an eye on kijiji and hope someone sells theirs. Or buy some knock off stuff.

Aftermarket Mil-spec Parklands or Frontenac (one or the other now discontinued, went out of business) are pretty much your choices, as what Hectic has already said. What is available in terms of issue Cadpat will be illegal, and generally very worn out.

Army Issue in Port Credit is the man for Cadpat, in the immediate GTA.

Yes, i'm referring to the Parklands/mil-spec/frontenac knock-offs.

http://armyissue.com/catalog/product...oducts_id/2260

"Parklands - large or extra large"

http://armyissue.com/catalog/product...oducts_id/2342

"milspex (mil-spec?) - size 30-42"

I just picked up another set of Cadpat knock-offs (frontenac top, mil-spec bottom) at Oakville Outdoor Surplus at inflated pricing. I don't recommend going there generally, but i was in town and needed to pick up a spare set for an upcoming OP anyway.

They actually had a few issue Cadpat helmet covers there, but i've got very well used shop-rags in the garage in better condition than these were.. $49.00? Get stuffed...

Ebay has a seller who has knock offs in Canada I have a pair of them, wears is so so, I use them more for hiking so n drop to the ground action and I would say they last a year, but there only 30$ and a set I think is 60$

I think he gets them from globalarmysurplus.com they have lots of cadpat knock off stuff

Hero Outdoors in Oshawa has some near-CADPAT BDU pants and tops. Their pants are around $35, and actually look pretty good. They also have the RAP4 CADPAT tops with the wicking fibre in the torso for around $70. They are again, not true CADPAT, but look pretty good.

Yes I have those combat shirts as well to wear under my moforc. Not sure on fading yet hut there sizing seems to be on the smaller side. I can't say about wear yet as I only started it this summer. The arm material is a little rougher than the 50/50 true cadpat but beside my issued pants they look very close to the same. If you want I can,post a pic of all three

Exclamation CADPAT Comparison

Here is a few fabrics all together in one spot ands same indoor lighting with and without Flash.

Underneath is a Frontenac CADPAT ARID Pants 50/50 cotton/nylon
Left is s RAP4 Combat Shirt sleeves in CADPAT 65/35 Polyester/cotton
Top is a Frontenac CADPAT combat top shirt 50/50 cotton/nylon
Middle is Issued Pants brand new made in 2005 I think from the tag, covered buttons on back and cargo and front pockets are Velcro close these are 50/50 cotton/nylon
Right in no name aftermarket specials in M65 us cut pants used as hiking pants one season 65/50 Polyester/cotton

I think the Frontenac which is out of business and RAP4 are fairly close in color. Also the Frontenac uses the same type of material 50/50 I'm not going to get into the its not ir treated etc.

Enjoy, I would like your comments on what you think looks better.

There stuff is superb but they no longer have pants. There customer service is next to non. I've made multiple orders and mo issues which were not resolved quickly and politely.

One more question:
Would an all black bdu plus vest be a really dumb idea?
