I think it's a band wagon thing. The Corps changed utility patterns, then the Army and the Air Force went to the BDU bluniform. Guess the Navy does not want to be left out.

I say as a Sea Cadet, wtf is the DoN doing, I don't like those nor do I want them.
They are ugly, then if I wanted camo I would buy the new digital stuff which I have in my footlocker so it's just anothyer way for the navy to spend money that could be used elsewhere.

Yes I think the "new" design is a total waste.

Yes the utility cover is the same. Difference is an EGA on the Marine Cover.
Well all of the branches have the same cover, except the the MARINES, they have the edges on the cover. So back to my question is it the same for navy and marines or not?


Answering the Q of the coast guard guy.... http://www.armysurplusworld.com/disp...partmentID=123

It's weird that some of these new designs make the American soldiers look like extras in a cheap Sci-Fi channel original movie.

1. Marines are under the Department of the Navy.

2. The USN and the USAF have different soft covers than the USA does.




So what exactly is the new uniform replacing?
