    Yeah. I sweat balls when I walk outside into this Louisiana humidity. Pretty much the worst uniform ever.

    I carry a bright fucking orange highlighter to see if anyone will say anything about it. Assholes keep creasing their stripes around here too. :nono:

    as per AFI 36-2903
    Do not starch or hot press the ABU. The ABU is a cotton/nylon blend fabric, repeated hot pressing or heavy ironing will accelerate the overall wear of the fabric. The ABU should be washed in detergent that does not contain optical brighteners, or the near infrared protection may be diminished. A partial listing of detergents that do not contain optical brighteners is available on the Air Force Portal Uniform Web site. Care instructions are on the label of the ABU.

    so you can iron, but its looked down upon. this uniform is so damn lazy. but who am i to talk with my ABU boots with BDU's:mamoru:

    Yeah, I read that you can lightly iron it. Light ironing doesn't leave razor sharp creases.

    To me, personally (IMHO), a CMSgt walking around with flat-ass stripes on top of a real nice crease (no ironing, just from wash and wear) looks like he doesn't care about it. Our honor guard sup. is a 14 year TI. What was the first thing she did upon making MSgt? Buy 26 MSgt stripes, and crease every single one of them. Including the set she was going to put on her brand spanking new ABU's. Has an iron actually touched the uniform? No. So, it's one of those things.

    To each their own.

    I wish I could roll up my sleeves. I even bought a larger uniform and had it tailored down and still can't do it. Sleeves are too small.
