First of all it's not "new". Three color desert has been issued since 1993 at least. It was designed in response to the gulf war where the 6-color desert had too much contrast. Unfortunately the 3 color desert isnt good anywhere outside of that sand dune type desert enviroment, and the troops in afganistan would be better ooff with the old pattern. Ebay is the best place i have found for BDU's. I usually get them for about $15.00 a set deliverd. I have had best results with buying from recently discharged Airforce troops. Their BDUs see little field use and are usually in like new condition.

I like this place outside DC: [url]www.fullmetaljacket.com[/url]. New pants and shirts are $23 each, but buy in quantity because shipping is steep.

Troy, The Army initially went with the three color prior to 1991 due to the fact that the six-color, which worked pretty well in the Mojave Desert, sucked in the Sinai, the Arabian Peninsula, and just about every other place you can think of. We tried it on Bright Star, the MNPKF stuff in the Sinai, and other places. It just didn't work that well. In fact, having been to the NTC more than a couple of times (like 7), the six-color just doesn't do as well as the three-color. The three-color's not perfect, but until someone develops a chameleon camo pattern, we can only afford so many different shades. As I have to buy my own uniforms, hell, I can only afford to have so many!

I can second FullMetalJacket.com as a reputable place to buy online. I've bought a variety of stuff from them over the past year (from a decent unlined black beret and flash - don't get me started) to original issue green jungle boots. Their service was always fantastic, and delivery time was quick. Last time I perused their website, it had a few glitches, so I called the 800 number. A really helpful guy answered the phone, and processed my order within 2 minutes.

Wow, I never realized that fullmetaljacket had a web site. I always thought of them as that cool surplus store I go through on the way to the gun shop that is on the second floor.

Anybody seen the pics of Palestinain Authority types wearing that blue/grey urban camo? Pretty freaky. I thought that all those funky colored patterns were just for... well... you know... "[@:D]inner city people[@:D]".

looking for 3-color desert eh. proceed immediately to your local stripmall, look for the stressed out staff NCO in a khaki shirt and blue trousers and loudly proclaim "GUNNY, I WANNA BE OH-THREE"...you can thank me later.
