    Default ADS Inc. US4CES (US Forces) Camouflage

    I know much of this was discussed in the multi-cam thread but I am going to promote the camo that I feel is the best and should be selected as our next ACU.

    I love those three articles. This crap we wear now has no camo capabilities unless you're laying in gravel (like that SPC said), the fit on them is terrible..even thin guys like me look like we've got a belly, and they just look dumb. I wasn't shocked at all to read that the brass got involved in the decision making process to outdo the Corps. And in the end it didn't even work. I hope the velcro on the shoulders goes away with the new uniform too.

    I do believe that it was a good choice to go with a wash and wear uniform, and ditch the black boots that Soldiers needed to spend so much time on. While it looked better, it took away too much time away that Soldiers could've used for schooling and reading up on their job.

    Well, the SFC in the above ACU pic is now retired (He was one of the leaders of the supposed testing), stated that at the time; they felt UCP was a great alternative to any other camo that was out there. Now we know there were political puppet strings and the decision was made with haste.

    I knew coming into the Army it was only a matter of time before they jumped to a new camouflage. After all, MARPAT was just being implemented when I got out of the Corps.

    Multi-cam is a derivative of the BDU. The BDU was around nearly for 25 years. If the Army would have gotten it right or if the services will stop this ME thing with unique identification with a darn utility uniform; the problem would have been solved.

    If not US4CES, then Multi-cam. But go back to ranks on the collar.

    A change is due ASAP.
