A buddy of mine printed off a couple of pages worth of the new APFU. It's not bad, but I can see it being a PITA in the more hotter regions. What really surprised me, that in the propaganda, it showed pictures of Soldiers in formation STILL wearing that MF%$@'ing PT belt with the cold weather APFU jacket. I can't find the propaganda "brochure", but the attached is what the 2013 APFU winner is. Looks like in the system FY15.

Man, I voted for the darker grey colored sets. Black uniforms in Afghanistan desert sun or Iraqi heat will not be welcome. The only thing I really wanted was for the cold weather jacket and pants to be less restrictive and more like the "track suits" the Marines now use.

The new APFU looks pretty good. Soldiers would mostly be hanging out in them overseas anyway (unless assigned to some "soft" base where they actually do PT) so I don't think it would matter much about them being black. As long as the material and fit aren't the same as the old PTs, I don't think most care about the colors.

I can hardly wait to go waste more money on another uniform change nobody needs. :greedy_dollars:

Good material but awful color combination. Going to be a beast in the summer months.
