    [QUOTE=Draco771]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...[/QUOTE]

              i may have missed this... but i heard something about 2012 the army was switching to the multicam. anyone else heard this? the only thing i hate about acu's are the velcro and button fly. i never been to combat, but it would only make sense to me that they keep the old desert ones for iraq and maybe something darker like mention before for afgan. correct me if im wrong please.

                    No there is not a set date on the change to a uniform (if there is one:rolleyes: )

                    In fact the uniforms that the 'MAN' tested, the Multi cam was ranked 7th out 15 from the testing and was eliminated because of limited accessibility for US forces or similar factors. They even test uniforms from North Korea, China, England, and Finland.

                    The one I saw and thought was the coolest was the Mossy Oak cammy.

                    But for right now, we're still in phase 1a of 4, still a long time before any of us a new uniform.

                        The Mossy Oak Cammie looked soo cool but.. from the read they were eliminated due to the same factors as the Muli Cam. Which I can't understand, you can get anything Mossy Oak From Wal-Mart or Bass shop.

                        I think there is good chance that we will see the ACU-Deltas (with coyote brown), issued to us. The Army rushed the Acu after passing the Marine Cammies up. I guess this would be version 2.0.

                          MultiCam's has regulary gotten good reviews in ArmyTimes articles. Soldiers have even said it was so good, it made it hard to see friendlies.

                            Since when does the top brass do things based on logic and reasoning? I'm still wet behind the ears, but even I know that's not the case. Money > effectiveness

                              Looks like the Brits are going to deploy a Multi-cam type pattern in March to their troops.

                              If you're curious how UCP-D looks on our troops, check out the CNN embedded video on this webpage: [url]http://defensetech.org/2009/12/21/new-army-camo-first-shots-and-new-brit-pattern/[/url]

                              Also on that page is a link to the BBC video detailing the Multi-cam.

                                doesn't look bad to me, looks way better in that video than it does in a magazine
