They fall under the same regs as the super cool Michael Bay style NWU blue camouflage uniform, and the rules for wearing them while off base are not as restrictive as the USMC regs.
Your'e 100% correct. I remember looking at it and saying to myself that's a odd shade of MARPAT. Then I looked it up and itss called NWU type III. MARPAT has orange/brown shades mixed into it,while NWU has more " greens".
