              The acu is just a placeholder until the army can afford multicams. When the marines changed over to digis the army had to keep up, so they introduced the acu. Multicams are far better but as of right now they are so new that they are cost prohibitive.

                I will check the color when I get there in a couple of weeks but I believe the hue was off on his TV screen.

                    Multicam?

                    Every recent picture of FCS has guys in Multi-Cam..

                    Of course, that could not mean a thing.. but hey, they're not in ACUs right?

                      Don't count on it. They just switched the dress uniform. They probably wont switch the ACU's for a good long time.

                        Why would they switch the ACUs after buying a ton of them?

                        And I have seen some images of the future combat stuff on military sites, where the guys have like laser guns or whatever, so fat chance we will get multi-cam anytime soon...

                        Also, the government doesn't just go and spend a bunch of money on cheaper uniforms to spend more money a little bit later when they have more... thats like buying a new car thats cheaper than the car you really want just so you can then buy the new more expensive car a few years later... why not just shell out the cash now and get what is wanted or needed?

                            I already know that, but honestly i do not think they would do something like that

                              The argument that the Army has invested too much into the ACU pattern to switch to something else is fundamentally flawed. The government and the military are fiscally inefficient. All it takes is a General or committee to say, "Oh, we like the look of blue and white digitals" for a bunch of Smurfs to be populating the mountains of Afghanistan.

                              I, however, support MARPAT. :)

                                [QUOTE=qcomer]Not to mention the velcro and stupid pockets.

                                Even the BDUs were more comfortable also. Oh how I missed my BDUS when they went to ACUs.[/QUOTE]

                                This topic has been beaten to death...

                                The "Velcro"... Well... Put it simply... YOUR RUCKSACK IS LOUDER THAN THAT!!

                                Actually speaking to Infantry guys who've been in the field with them, and CAVALRY SCOUTS!

                                Going through your rucksack makes more noise...

                                And an honest question I got back talking to a QP on PS, when I asked him what he thinks about it all... His reply to me... "Well why the <a href="http://www.youtube.com/nationalguard"> Click HERE</a><a href="http://www.youtube.com/nationalguard"> Click HERE</a><a href="http://www.youtube.com/nationalguard"> Click HERE</a><a href="http://www.youtube.com/nationalguard"> Click HERE</a> would you be digging in your pockets if you KNOW you are that close to the enemy?"

                                And that question alone had me off guard...

                                And the "stupid pockets" were put on them per request by Army SOF community... The pockets on the shoulders for example, are there for when you have body armor on etc.

                                ARSOC actually were the ones who suggested all those "stupid pockets"...

                                Just FYI...

                                The ACU Pattern, personally I don't agree with, to me, it looks rather ugly... I'd rather do this guy http://www.tridentmilitary.com/new-photos22/r91camo.jpg

                                or this guy http://www2.ttcn.ne.jp/camouflage/image/new_zealand_army_current_issue.jpg

                                But personally I think the Army could have done a lot better with choice of fabric... the ACU fabric isn't as "durable" as the BDUs...

                                But yeah... your comment on "stupid pockets", those pockets are on there/designed per ARSOCs requests...
