Dammit, my unit just bought MARPAT woodland digital BDUs, and it'll cost an arm and a leg to replace our khakis and dungarees....

you'd think they'd go digital at least, since the other services are switching.

There's an option for digital uniforms, all of these are merely in the development phase.

In my opinion I hate the looks of it. It kind of does look Sci-Fi and just looks horrible to me. The army should stick what it has been using for decades.

The Army has a similar new uniform too

It makes the US military look so cheap.
It all started with the stupid beret thing. It's a universally accepted fact ... at least before the US military did it, that only crap militaries have desk clerks sporting berets.

well let's look at the digital uniforms as more than a style thing. i really doubt they're putting them out because the ole camo was out of fashion.

The USMC Digital cammo was out of neccessity because a better form of camouflage came out.
Really I can see that thing working much better than the standard cammo.

But that Navy thing is just unneccessary.

1. Marines are under the Department of the Navy.
I know that, but still they have their own Identity
2. The USN and the USAF have different soft covers than the USA does.
USN and USAF are the USA



So what exactly is the new uniform replacing?

I've seen camparisons in the field between the old camo vs the digi. The digital really does blend in better with the environment. Not only that it's IR treated so it gives some IR protection to the user. But protection against IR is a whole new game that spans more then just your cammies.
