the ACU Battle Dress

11 09 2010

Well, one of the most important things, to have a good modern us army load out ! the battle dress. Exit the old BDU (battle dress uniform) in woodland and DCU (Desert Combat Uniform). New design and new partern . Full color UCP, for the vest, forget the large collar, now it’s a mao’s collar type with VELCRO ®.

VELCRO ® is ubiquitous on th new uniform, each pocket is closed with VELCRO ®, 2 on torso, 1 by sleeve like SF RAID shirts, and no buttons, a long zip on the vest.  Nametape, army tape, rack are fixed with VELCRO ®. On each sleeve side pocket, you’ve got and IR TAG hide by a flap.

In the sleeve elbows (and pants knees) you can insert foam pad to a better confort, elbows and knees pad aren’t necessary with this kind of things.

Pants is like the BDU, pistol and cargo pocket but 2 news pockets had been added, on each shins you can carry an m4 magazine. (to the right cargo pocket, to the left m4 mag shin pocket)

Under the vest, you can were different kind of underwear like underarmour clothes, or official ECWCS Gen III level 1 or 2 undershirt & drawers (soon) or the DSCP t-shirt, in tan color made from polyester breath able vapor wick material, much better than cotton.
