Idk, im not trying to do a complete mini theme, im going more towards a nice flowing look more on the Army Strong campaign! Thanks for the input! biggrin.gif
NO! lol I will have some ACU in there somewhere but not alot just because it doent go with the Orange/yellow that well and our offical pattern is about to change from that ACU garbage lol..... rolleyes.gif


I wish I could find some Multicam vynal or 100mph tape, there not selling it yet at or stores until the uniform changes..... rolleyes.gif







Whats all this crap lol, the only time another branch is authorized the ACU is:

-Attached to a Separate Branches command
-In the Field(EX: IRAQ)
-During an exercise, with specific uniform requirements in the FRAGO
-Presidential Detail

I work with all branches and im station on a Navy base and im Army. I can tell you that no one likes the ACU(Army Combat Uniform) pattern, it really does not blen with any foliage or surroundings except for a couch from the 70's lol Seriously Google it! I am a fan of the new Multicams and I cannot wait till we get them! smile.gif

yeah the UCP pattern on the ACUs freaking suck, i read the official study from Nantick when they were doing the study, and it was still crappy, but the army is stupid and picked it...

yeah multicam looks amazing, but when it fades, a lot of the early runs of the fabric would fade into a whitish color. also it looks really dirty when its a little faded. idk what it is....

anyways there is supposed to be a single pattern, law makers have been talking about it. but with the troops supposed to be leaving afghan, and the huge cut in the army, i doubt its gonna happen soon. its gonna take another conflict in a vastly different environment to change it. and i doubt the USMC is gonna be happy about changing their camo.

I have about ten multicam sets sitting in my tough boxes time now. I love them they fit better they look better and personally they go with the beret better than the acus.

I hate the acus for many reasons besides the obvious they don't work reason. I am happy they brought back the button cargo pockets and button sleeves.

I'm pretty sure my clothing and sales and general jackson have tons of multicam stuff. You should just cover it in the patches you get in each pair of pants and each top

Oh yeah the multicams breath better

I know law makers wanted a new uniform for the army I didn't hear that they wanted one for the whole military

yeah ive seen the difference myself, the material itself, since it was made by Crye, has to be licensed or made by their factory, so better QC (im talking about you pinkish ABUs and ACUs)

haha ACUs only work when their dirty or when youre in a gravel pit haha


oh yeah there was a big fuss about it because the Marine Corps paid $300,000 for the ownership of the MARPAT patterns (which in themselves were ripoffs of the Canadian CADPAT, just recolored) and the army paid billions for a flop, and had to pay a contract for multicam (which is still privately owned) and congress wasnt too happy, and blah blah blah politics, and nothing has been done, accept the multicam guy getting rich because that pattern is awesome and the UK uses a variant with longer sploches, the Aussies bought a multimillion dollar license to manufacture it, and the whole world and everyones mom copies it from chile to china hahaha


long story short, Air force, please get rid of your military hawaiian shirt pattern that is copying a flawed army pattern, Army please please change the pattern, its a joke. Navy get rid of the blueberries, and go back to sailors on ships wearing uniforms that make sense.... (but keep the AOR2 pattern) haha

yeahhhh sorry mini rant.


For the build, i say put cool toggle switches on it because they are flippin awesome.

There was a bill passed requiring all services to go back to a single style uniform by 2018.

Personally, I'd like them to pick up ATACS, but the company that developed that pattern is trying to rape the DOD for 20 something million for the use of it.

I really wouldn't mind multi-cam so I can get rid of this ABU crap I have to wear now that was based on some crappy outdated Vietnam era pattern.

ATACS looks dirty! hahah it works though!

haha funny, also to happen by 2018, the army will be down to a 100,000 man force, cut down from the current ~400,000.... hmmmm coincidence


hahahah 20 million for what looks like poo stains, or the green one with puke stains!

at least multicam has a cool development story, haha i think im just being a fan boy
