Ex army camouflage clothing on Morocco
 
I am off to Morocco shortly for the first time and was thinking of taking some army camo goertex waterproofs. Is army clothing a good idea in Morocco from a security point of view ???

Any comments welcome.

Thanks

Camo clothing
 
While Morocco's not a conflict zone, you'll probably get a few looks and questions at the border. And maybe on the road.

Camo gear's not the clothing to wear around town so I'd advise against it.

I don't know about Morocco, but I know that in some parts of the world wearing camo-style clothing can gain unwanted extra attention from the cops and border guards. My advice would also be to skip it.

You'll find there's a lot of hunters, fishermen in Morocco who wear camo as a matter of course. I even came across a clay pigeon shoot in the mountains with everyone dressed up.

Now if you were riding one of those Ural sidecar outfits with pretend machine guns, that might be a different matter.

Worth bearing in mind that the same spec clothing is available ex-RAF and ex-Navy so you can have Bluey-Grey or ....erm......Navy blue.

I think the fact you asked the question probrably means you think it 'may' not be a good idea and I would agree.

Thanks for all the replies/help, will probabilly go with civilian waterproofs to be on the safe side.

As for the "KLR" I would leave the gun case off........!!!

Thanks

I´ve gone with my ex-police XT and full black ninja-terrorist clothings and helmet and no problem.
