    I just got my first set of ACUs today, and even though this is probably a repost I'm just wondering what everyone thinks about them. Even though I was at a special forces post in Iraq and all of the guys there had them I still can't get used to them. Maybe I'm just old school or something, but nothing looks better than a spitshined set of boots....

    I agree. No clue how the wear, but as far as appearance goes they don't look near as good as a pair of starched BDUs and spitshined boots do.

    :dunno: I think I've heard them referred to as the lazy man's uniform...


    Edit: The girls and guys in basic are going to have it so easy with this uniform. Does anyone know if the ROTC cadets will be switching over to ACUs as well?

    I know rotc and jrotc are the last on the list to get the new uniforms.

    maybe im just "new school", but cammies are a work uniform, i dont think you should have to spend 2 hours a night on your uniform your just going to fuck up. new style cammies ftw!

    Who wants to waste their time spitshinning boots? I've done it once because we had to during our PLDC/BNCOC course but thankfully that was only 3 weeks long. Its either brush shine or desert.

    The only time we have did anything with the uniforms was when we got our Berets and then turning blue ceremony/graduation.

    They are pretty bitchin as far as functionality goes, but they are ugly as hell.

    They were hard on uniform inspection for drill sgt school, I don't see why it would be any different for basic training, then again maybe it's different depending on where you go to basic... I've never been to basic so I wouldn't know. Either way it doesn't matter now.
