How does the fit compare with the sizing of the older cammies? Are the sizes the same? Boots, too? I need to get afew pair, before departing, and may have to buy them sight unseen.

Hey Cincinnatus, could you pick up a couple of pair for me? I need some for when I go hunting or to the gun show. [i]Ooooh, I've gone and done it this time.[/i] [:D]

The boot you hear tapping in the hall belongs to STLRN.

I wear size M/L BDU's, and I have two pair of 3 year old military woodland camo to compare against. I have two pair of MARPAT trousers. The M/L pair made by American Apparel Inc. are a bit tight in the waist, but still do fine: It might be the elastic is a bit tight. They feel like a pair that were made on a Friday. I usually tie the pant leg draw strings on my BDU's, and let them rest on my boot tops, but because MARPAT's have no draw strings, this presented a problem with the "long" length in that using blousing straps might make the pant leg a tad on the short size, so I bought a pair of M/XL MARPATS. The M/XL's are made by Propper International, and like all Propper clothing, they fit great. They are closer in fit (in the waist) to the older style BDU. They are snug in the waist because of the elastic, but there is more give to the elastic. There is plenty of length for using blousing straps if so desired. If you are planning on blousing, go with one length longer. If you are planning on letting them hang out of the boot, get them in the length you would normally. Jay

Heck, I don't care if you wear 'em. If you want, go out and get yourself a set of dress blues, while you're at it. Maybe even a snazzy green beret to go with your fake Medal of Honor. If you fellas that want to play dress up and pretend you're a Marine, it won't bother me a bit. [;)]

Cin, from what I remember about the MARPAT before I got out , you need to go up one size in the trousers.

Yes. I wear M/L old style militsary BDU pants, and M/L in the MARPAT, but prefer M/XL in MARPAT. It's just a preference. Jay
