I guess this is what I get for making fun of the new AF "Streetfighter" BDUs. I like the zippers and velcro though, those buttons were always such a bother to iron around.


Sweet mother of mercy, the Army hates us.

Zipper and velcro are the two biggest problems. Zippers break, get stuck, make noise - buttons don't and are easy to sew back on .. velcro, makes noise, collects lint, and I love me badges will be falling off all of the time on patrols if they are allowed to wear them outside of garrison.

You don't have to worry about ironing anymore - the new NASCAR BDUs are wrinkle free!

I'm just waiting on the velcro fasteners for our boots, can't be far now. Pretty soon it will be a full on stripper tear-away uniform. YEEHA! Get me a job on the side.

Am I the only one who feels this uniform is sort of a scary throwback to facist uniforms?

I'm not sure if ya salute a guy in this uniform or give a Sieg Heil?????

Actually that was my first impression of it too

Just hope the test brigade gives it a negative evaluation and they dump the whole udea
