    The reason I ask is ,I know they made them for the civilian market , and I found a BDU in Woodlad that says Made for the U.S. Army and I am thinking about getting it , the guy has 3 of them and he is trying to get me to buy them all , I will do it if folks here are interested in them as well , they are patched , the one I have seen has special forces tabs and medical patches , it had a name tag but has been removed .

    I didn't know that there is an Army version of the Buzz Off stuff... Could you please post a pic of the BDU? I might be interested.
    thanks

    I moved this topic to the "multi-service" because it's used by (at least) 2 branches. Hope you don't mind...

    Interesting item. Seems like it has been treated with the insect shield recently. The shirt looks pretty old but with tags...

    Sorry Andrew , you are wrong .

    Description
    The U.S. Army Research Development and Engineering Command intends to solicit, negotiate and award a contract to Buzz Off Insect Shield, LLC, at 814West Market Street, Greensboro, NC 27401, to apply the EPA Registered pesticide Permethrin to the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) Coat and Trousers. Permethrin is a synthetic reproduction of a naturally occurring insect repellant. The factory treated permethrin-impregnated ACU will provide soldiers an increrased level of protection from insects. The commercia l application is permanent and is expected to last for the life of the government. The manufacture and distribution of Permethrin falls under the purview of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40 since it is classified as a pesticide by EPA. In order for a manufacturer to be in full compliance to Title 40, the following must be obtained: an EPA registration for the active ingredient; an EPA registration for the manufacturing process; and EPA assigned est ablishment number specific to the location to where the application is being applied; and an EPA sanctioned Product Registration. At the present time, Buzz Off is the only known source who meets all of the Title 40 requirements. The proposed effort will be solicited on the basis of other than full and open competition pursuant to FAR 6.302-1, Only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. The proposed effort will be procured in accordance with FAR Part 12 . A firm-fixed price requirements contract will be utilized. The minimum quantity will be 1,000 ACU sets and the maximum quantity will be 500,000 ACU sets. The period of performance for the proposed effort is six months. The North American Industry Cla ssification System Code is 325320 with 500 employees. Any requests for further information shall be via email to the following e-mail addresses: monique.fields@us.army.mil or thomas.dickson@us.army.mil. See Note 22.

    I was under the impression that BUZZ OFF was only for USMC because the BUZZ OFF name is patnented by the United States Marine Corps (According to my uniform tags). Weird.

    If I remember correctly, there was first "BUZZ OFF" introduced in Vietnam War era OG-107 Jungle Jackets. Not sure which pattern though.

    I don't think they expire. They just wash out after 25 washes or something. Or what do you mean?
