Been catchin a lot of crazy looks now that weve officially switched over to this uniform. Not really sure of the purpose of blue digital camo, but it sure hides coffee stains and pen marks better than the old whites. This is the last thing I wanna be wearing if I ever fall off a navy ship though. What do you guys think?

Looks like a jig saw puzzle that's not put together yet. But I like it.

I've given this a lot of thought and can't think of anything that I'd "like" to wear if I fell off a navy ship except maybe a life jacket the size of the ship I just fell off of.

Kinda reminds me of the urban/night camo.

Great for huntin' zombies I'm sure! :shock:

Kind of strange to me seeing Sailors in that camo, but I'm from the bell bottom dungaree era. That's the first I've heard of the "turning orange from saltwater" theory, and don't believe it. A couple of fellow instructors had them on at a previous leadership camp, and they looked hot (as in temperature wise) to me. At least you don't have to worry about ironing/pressing creases in them. ;) . How do you like the new khaki shirt and black pants uniform?

Waterwings, as you probably can tell already, I'm an old country boy from Alabama that dips snuff and drinks coffee. So as long as I'm not wearing white I'm good to go. You'd be surprised at what all you can get on the new camo and never know it. I spilled coffee on my leg last week, and by lunch I couldn't tell what leg I spilled it on. In whites that woulda meant a trip home to change. The new khaki/black is great too. No tie and it took the place Johnny cashes and the whites. No complaints from me, except I wish they gave you a better choice of boots with the cammies and an increased uniform allowance to cover all this crap. The effin gortex jacket that goes with the camo is $300, and yep you guessed it, it's gotta come outta pocket or you'll freeze like I did last year. No uniform allowance for the extras. BS if ya ask me.
