It is official! *IMPORTANT* (multicam being deployed)
Wow....looks like BDU's with ACU pockets....Cutting edge. *Sigh* The Army is always a day late and a dollar short.
Its also been proven that the pattern on BDU's actually attracts your eyes attention. Thats why we went to digital pattern.
Multicam is a very high tech camouflage. We used to say that the old woodland pattern (what you're calling BDUs) was made up of four colors. If you notice, in multicam, some "colors" actually have gradients that have a hard border on one side of the pattern, but that fade into another color on the other side of the pattern. Multicam is one of the few camos that is actually more effective in a wider variety of situations than some of the digital camos that have come out recently. The Army screwed up by not wanting to have a woodland and desert digital camo. The mint green ACUs were just too much of a compromise unless you were trying to blend in to an ugly couch in Iraq:
Such a suit could be considered combat-capable for the corporate sharks out there that want to chew you up.
How much does the rest of your combat kit cost, including your firearm? I would expect you'd want to pay a bit more for good defense than good offense. Protect your butt, then worry about kicking the other guy's butt.
How much do professional sports teams pay for a player's gear?
Dude, seriously, WHAT handkerchief?
