Multicam question

I know the Army is going to be utilizing this uniform in the near future (if not now) in Afghanistan. Im pretty sure SOF units, Rangers, and other units are already using this in the field so I know a few of you have a little knowledge about this uniform.

I will have the opportunity to use this when I deploy here soon so im going to be buying a pair cause the uniform the AF developed is complete garbage. I was wondering is the FROG get the ONLY fire resistant set or is the 65/35 authorized OTW? I dont want to buy the wrong set but I also dont want to spend the $$$ if the 65/35 is suitable for OTW.

Also... what is the 65/35? Which thread is the higher number (polyester or cotton?)...

If anyone has a spare set that will fit a 38R blouse and a 34L pants and/or a combat shirt with it that wants to sell or trade it would be greatly appreciated. I have tan flight suits and ABU-G (USAF OTW garmet... kinda like the Army ACU style shirt design) as well as a new super sweet benchmade single piece (Nimravus modle) if that will tickle your fancy

Really appreciate the info and/or trade if you got it. I could really use this uniform cause I dont feel like standing out like a twinky in a white room. Thanks guys

Yes, multicam is already in use in trashcanistan. no you don't need it. Believe me, you're not going to blend into **** regardless.

Get a uniform, wear it, don't die.

depends on where he goes.

i sure as hell wish we had multicam when i deployed last year. i was in northern ghan, and it was nothing but forest/jungle.

if you go down south... DCUs would be ideal, but, they phased those out.

i was hoping for an answer to my question. does the 65/35 blend suffice to the flame resistance requirements for OTW operations? anyone know or do i need to get the FROG stuff?

the multicam that they're issuing is flame retarded, the Acus they issue for deployment are AKA FRACUs

I'm Certain the 65/35 Is 65 Poly / 35 Cotton.

As for use OTW I too BELIEVE they are Approved for Use. I have Sold 65/35 ACU's for combat use in the past and never had an Issue.

i want you to tell me which has better functionality in the Afghanistan AO. then come back and call me names alright ANYTHING is better than the ABU design. they are ****ing worthless...

the air force has a huge supply of hot service woman compared to army and navy. Marines have some peppered in there but nothing like the air force. and thats what i looked forward to when i went to bagram, the air force chicks. other than that... i really only respect the JTAC's out of that whole service :/

ACU, multicam is only being issued over seas... atleast for army right now

if you know you're being slotted for deployment, then think/buy ahead
