Nice set, but personnaly I'm not a fan of the ACU. At first (in 2004), I was excited about an all-condition camoflage. But then, when I saw the final result, I was kinda disapointed... Some further tests disapointed me more. I doesn't blend that good in most environement wheter it's desert or woodland. The colors are too light for a dense woodland environement and too much foliage green for desert environements. I personnaly tested it with a ACU patrol cap compared to 3color and woodland. The older pattern where better. Then I found some article about "Skorpion" pattern (known as Crye Multicam). I you're looking for THE all condition pattern bdu set, Mutlicam is the answer!!! It blends breatly in both arid (not that good in real desert) and woodland. Haven't tried it personnaly but I found a test over the internet at www.militarymorons.com
simply the best camo to me, even compared to USMC Marpat.

Anyway, nice set

A generalized pattern will never be as effective as a camo that's designed for a specific environment.

But still, ACU is still A Cool Uniform.

Very nice setup, now you need some grey cam cream :lol:


Btw, what's the large pouch on the front of your rig? Just a dump pouch?

Sort of its actually a but pouch but thats my SAW rig and i needed somthing to carry the "crap" in. Or if im running with my M4 its a dump pouch. Next time out ill bring it and you can have a look if your there. Ive actually figured out how to rig an X-harness so next perchase is the X-harness and hydration panel.

Nice shots. I could see this time of year being good for ACU, as well in the late fall....

What do you mean...sometimes.


Just got my ACU and fielded it this weekend. I think it's pretty good for this time of year with a little snow kicking around.

I though ACU was horrid when I first saw pics of it.

We just had 2 guys from the US Army up to do a seminar, and after seeing it in person I have changed my mind. Again it's a great general pattern, not a specific one, so it has to be treated as such.

TAG and HSGI are now being offered in ACU as well for those who have accepted it like me
