The new uniform makes more use of Velcro, and the coat fastens in front with a zipper instead of buttons.
Velcro = noise

Soldiers also will get a new, no-shine, tan combat boot, and the current black boots will be discontinued.
Black shiny boots look sharper.

SFC Kirk, Star Ship Enterprise, at your service!

At least it is versatile. You can wear your EIB, Jump Wings, and Scuba bubble while in garrison .. then switch it up with your CIB, HALO and Pathfinder for that night on the town. I know wearing those skill badges always helped me on raids.

There are some good changes - but still, I must ask .. wtf were they thinking?
