    never been a fan of the ACU's. stains easily from the red dirt from Schofield Barracks, specially the boots. have to literally use sandpaper to sand it down to get it to garrison standards. hopefully they'll move to the MULTI-CAM design.

    I wouldn't know about the new boots...I'm still rocking the original ABU steal-toes from 2009...not my choice either..

    I'm curious to see how good they clean up though...less than a week of working -135's did more damage than years on the -15s

    Just make the change to multicams and be done with it. Works well in almost all environments and fits the "one uniform" criteria that the army wanted. Granted in some more extreme places something else might be better, but the SOF units that would possibly be going there have the cash to buy their own anyways.

    So is teh Army getting something new? Or are they going with what the Marine Corps has? What about the pattern you see on ISAF forces? That's not a bad looking design. The new USAF looks pretty terrible. By the time they get it figures out, the Army would have used the original desert, the ACU, and a new pattern in 12 yrs of Afghanistan. You would think by then they would have figured out something that works.

    I think so far Army will stick with the ACU's, and MULTI-CAM when getting deployed, till they come out with a new design. Honestly I think the MULTI-CAM should've been their first choice. There's no way they're gonna get the MARPAT. Last time I read it's patented by the Marine Corp, so that a no-go.

    I'm surprise DOA spent that much on the ACU's. It has more cons than pros. velcro, pattern, ain't that durable compare to the BDU's of the yesteryear.
