    USN Experimental BDU's

    Post by bravo_2_zero on Thu Apr 16, 2009 1:44 pm





    NWU-C Blue/Gray M81 BDU cut


    NWU-B Gray/Blue USMC design in cut.


    NWU-D Blue/Gray M81 BDu cut


    NWU-C Vs NWU-D

    the flash on my camera don't do the colors on this set any good. All the colors very dark, like deep navy blue-near black. The flash makes them look like Rothco Urban sky blue stuff.

    I've done pretty well with the prices on this stuff too. However, a month or so ago I saw a couple of sets sell well over $100. I should be picking up some hats tomorrow (should have today, but got bad directions to the shop). That will complete my four sets, which makes me happy Very Happy

    Hi i just picked up a used set of NWU-D pants! Any idea what they're worth and how rare? They're marked Experimental so im assuming theyre really hard to find! Look to be in decent condition but theyre might be a few stains on them (gotta take a closer look). Really cool though! Anyone interested? (ill post pics in a few)

    The price of these things bounces all over the place. I've paid as little as $25, but I've seen them sometimes go for $100 +. Size, condition, and which variant are important. My guess is they are worth at least $50 these days, but I haven't been paying attention. The Navy made several tens of thousands of these sets in total, and they were all worn in non-combat environments. Therefore, a lot of them are still around.

    I just bought an experimental "NWU Performance T" undershirt today! Its the blue under armor-type shirt. Made by American Apparel. I would imaagine these are a little harder to find than the blouse or pants because its just an undershirt. Still cool though!

    Thanks,
