    Man, if the new Multicam shirt thy are going to have is in this design, that is going to be very cool. I have always like the British combat uniforms, the materials and pocket placement has always seemed superior to the US conterparts. That design they have there is VERY slick

    I think I saw a photo sometime least year of British PECOC troops testing a prototype plate carrier and wearing this shirt. Very cool.
    Shame this pattern of DPM will eventually be going away. Sad

    Cool Shirt, do you actually have that or are the pics from the web? Are we actually gonna do away with DPM for temperate or is the new multicam type just for Afghanistan? Seems to light to use anywhere other than dry desert type areas Question

    from the way I understood it, first was going to Afghanistan & then the whole Army would get it...According to soldier systems website...it says this:

    Earlier today, unattributed information found its way to a popular military message board detailing plans to begin issuing this new pattern initially to troops on Op Herrick early next Spring and ultimately in 2011 to the entire military. As you can see from the photo, the unique MultiCam®️ color palette has been adapted to a pattern reminiscent of Disruptive Pattern Material (DPM) a pattern in use by the British military for 40 years.

    here is the link:
