WW2 German camo

Can anyone explain to me in detail the differences between the types of WW2 German Splinter camo?
I know there are differences between the Luftwaffe and Heer versions but I don't know exactly what they are...
I noticed that some pieces of clothing have a greener tone, others are more brown and others are almost white.
The green spots also vary and may be brighter or duller in color...
I've seen clothing pieces where the brown has an almost golden tone.
Is this a manufacturing difference or there are models other than Splinter A and B?

    These uniforms were being made by factories throughout Europe using dyes made by different concerns using varied ingredients, and varied fabrics.

      This. The materials and dyes used in German WWII uniforms, especially late-war uniforms, vary wildly.

    I ordered splittertarn from a product page that had a photo like the one on the right, and received it looking like the photo on the left. The seller said it's just lighting differences. It looks good, my only gripe is the green is too bright. They should've went with a more subdued/grayed green but maybe it'll wash out and not stick out so much.

      It's funny you say that because a similar thing happened to me this week.
      I bought a fabric with the Splinter pattern and in the photo it was much lighter in color.
      I was a little apprehensive but decided to continue with the purchase as it was a good price.
      When it arrived I was positively surprised because it was darker and had shades of green and brown in the perfect color to match the rest of my equipment.
      The reverse side, however, was much darker (the fabric is double-sided).
      This never happened with all the other camos fabric I've bought.
      I bought Rhodesian Brushstroke, Jietai, Woodland, Marpat and Greek Lizard but only Splinter have this unreliable coloring pattern in each different piece.

        What do you use the fabric for?

          I make my own custom BDUs and helmet covers.
          It's cheaper to do this than to buy a repro from overseas in my country.
          Not only taxes fricking sucks but I also don't like the cut/buttons from WW2 pieces and their repro pieces.

        I have a couple of original splintertarn zeltbahns. They are noticeable darker on the one side than on the other.

      What was the seller anon? I'm looking at 0241 Tactical and Vajra Concepts for a Splitterntarn top and pants and basically just waiting for whichever comes back in stock first.
      0241 has a camo guide page which says they offer a Spring, Summer, and urban variant, which I found interesting. The urban variant looks similar to the anorak that Fireforce Ventures sells in that pattern.

    Heer Splitter has a larger scale pattern, Luftwaffe has smaller. They also are entirely different patterns if you compare them next to each other. Look at original items instead of repros, repros have really varying quality of colors and so on.
    There are two shades of Heer splitter, one slightly browner than the other, some variation with factories/batches. The fabrics are the same cotton weave, though some items in specific were made from thinner linen.
    There are extremely rare variations like true-brown splitter, and splitter with the black overprint from leibermuster

    Can someone link a good material about these differences?
    I've did my own research but I found the results to be disappointing.

      Maybe someday Ill be able to afford some of his stuff. Looking at their or At the Fronts jackboots
      I got a Mil-tec reversible winter jacket at a trade show for 50 bucks. I use it as a work jacket around the property in the winter. All i really had to do was reinforce the buttons. Waiting to see what stitching falls apart first so I can repair it better

      I'd wager than 70% of all WW2 impressions are from Hikishop these days

        But that's the marsh camo.
        It's not the same as Splintertarn which is the one OP is talking about.

        its sumpfmuster from panthershop. i dont have any splinter myself, so i posted my sumpf as an example of their quality. SM is about the same level, but imo panthershop does a better quality product. Ive got a pair of SM m1943 2 buckle usgi boots, incredible quality work.

        OP, buy from panthershop or sm, dont buy some farb ass chinkshit that will tear itself apart in 3 months.

          I will never pay 350 dollars + taxes for a camo with a cut I don't like.

    Such a badass camo.
    It reminds me of M81 Woodland.
