Well, I mean, apart from the fact that both a Canadian soldier and this Estonian soldier wear pixelated “woodland” camouflage, they hardly look the same.
For example, [here is a picture of a canadian soldier](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d9/Canadian_infantry_in_Ancon_2010-07-19_1.JPG/800px-Canadian_infantry_in_Ancon_2010-07-19_1.JPG). Obviously, there are many differences right of the bat. The most obvious is the helmet; actually, you will rarely see a canadian soldier (even SF/SOF) without one while in theatre or during training. Secondly, is the camouflage pattern. While the Estonian pattern has much larger “pixels” and uses only greens and black, the Canadian CADPAT has smaller “pixels” and includes brown in the pattern. Finally, the armor (or lack there of) is quite apparent on the Estonian soldier. Finally, the load bearing gear is quite different. While the Estonian soldier wears a simple modular tactical vest, Canadians are most often seen with non-modular load-bearing rigs worn over armor. The Estonian’s vest is Olive Drab in color, while the issued canadian gear is in the CADPAT camouflage.
