ACU Uniform on it's way out

The ACU Uniform or Army Digital Camouflage Pattern Uniform http://shop.vtarmynavy.com/acu-uniform-items-c411.aspx appears from several articles to be finally on it's way out. See these articles http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2012/06/us-armys-pixellated-camoflage-uniform-is-a-us5bn-failure/http://www.stripes.com/news/us/army-s-5b-failed-pixelated-uniform-getting-scrapped-1.181435 and http://defense.aol.com/2012/06/25/army-drops-universal-camouflage-after-spending-billions/

What is the common thread in all these articles is that the Army spent 5 Billion dollars on a camouflage pattern (Army Digital) that is woefully inadequate in most conditions. Perhaps they should have made it our of shredded dollars?

 Now they are going to select a new uniform all over again see http://www.armynavyblog.com/2012/01/multicam-camouflage-one-of-finalists.html

While multicam and many of these other camouflage patterns are very nice what is to say that the same problems are not going to happen all over again?

How do you think this will work out and why please give us your thoughts. 

In the mean time all items in the ACU Uniform category are 25% off!

If this is so, can a similar fate for the abomination that is the Navy Working Uniform NWU be far behind?

Agreed. But at least ACU was open to the public. The NWU was treated by the navy like a highly guarded secret.

Being former navy, the Nwu is way better looking than the dungaree I had to wear.

When will you be selling the NWU? I can't find anything on the market but the cap. Steve, Simi Valley, CA
