Originally in the Pacific theater, the Marine Corps used the conjoined camouflage suit (duck hunting camouflage) developed for the Army in 1942.
It is printed with herringbone (HBT) fabric. On the one hand, it is a green pattern of vegetation used in spring and summer, on the other hand, it is a brown pattern of withered leaves used in autumn and winter (another is that green is suitable for jungle, while Brown is suitable for beach).

Although camouflage clothes are naturally thought to provide concealment in the Pacific jungle, it has been found that ordinary monochrome olive-green clothes are more concealed when troops move. Camouflage has advantages only when it is still, such as when the sniper is still.So soon the suit was replaced by two new camouflage suits designed by the Marine Corps.

Two sets of P-42 camouflage jackets are similar to monochrome P-41 jackets, but some modifications have been made. The left pocket has been removed and the right pocket has been closed with a small fixed knob. The remarkable feature of this jacket is that it can be worn on both sides, with USMC printed on each side of the chest. Although the model was customized in 1942, it was not distributed until 1943. Many Marines did not use it in a complete set. It is common to mix monochrome HBT tops or trousers, depending entirely on the actual situation, or it may be personal preferences.
