What's the best place to just get regular BDUs? I'm looking for some OD pants and some of those 50/50 cotton/poly shirts.

Good/bad brands?

Thanks!

I have tons of used,but not abused woodland BDUs,mostly all left it medium and small.
I have some brand new OD shirts,med & large.

I need to do inventory & see what all I have stored in spare bedrooms.

Recall having some new stuff,also tiger stripe,just havent had the time to go through it.

Also used web gear,all this stuff came from local army navy store that went out of business.

Ironic!

I hate Propper uniforms. Every one that I have purchased have turned out to be, well, less than satisfying. I washed a brand new set of Woodland BDU's, and the black turned purple, and the rest of the colors faded BAD. Needless to say, that uniform was promptly placed in the circular file.

I purchased the Subdued Urban BDU's from Propper, and after the first wash, it looked as if I had them for 5 years. Would have been better off getting the urban BDU's instead.................

Has this happened to you?

I have 4 sets of issue uniforms I would be willing to part with. I currently have 11 sets, need to turn in 4 sets and in August we are getting the new ACU's.

Has anyone bought the Propper ACUs sold on BDU.com?

Go to military surplus stores. Get 'em cheap. We're in the middle of switching to the ACU's. They're alright. The tan boots are gay. I prefer having some pride in my appearance and nothing beats highly shined boots.

Ranger Joe's, US Cavalry, et. al. are all good sources. Too, since you're in Wisconsin, try going to your local National Guard Armory and ask what they're doing with the BDU's that are getting switched out for ACU's. Might find a deal and put some greenbacks in the hands of some weekend warriors.

Good luck,

I bought a set of Propper BDUs from BDU.com for NG drill. I haven't been issued any uniforms yet and I've been in the Guard since July. They must be waiting to give me ACUs.

They're ok. I got the nylon/cotton ripstop which is supposed to be GI spec. I think the pockets are made of thinner material than GI spec BDUs, but they haven't faded yet. So far so good.

Turn them inside-out when you wash them just to be sure

That helps.

I have some Propper 100% cotton BDUs that look great after several washings.

Streichers has the new 5.11 TDU pants. They are BDU's without the slash pockets. I just ordered two pair to try out. I hate the slash pockets of the tactical pants but love the pants.
