What's the top one? Chi-com? I'm not familiar w/ that abbreviation. That's unfortunate it faded that much.

Chi-com=Chinese made.

I just received a set of these. I wear a 36 waist/32 length pants and the Large Regular are a bit large for my taste. I wear a 42-44 reg jacket and the Large Regular top is also on the large size. When wearing a vest, I prefer to have the garment fit tighter.

If you are used to the "feel" of the BDU's and ACU's, the "feel" of the MC material is a little strange (stiff). Maybe with further washing......

:happy: I'll stick to my $100 R6 multicam shirt. I got what I paid for and I love it. The POCKETS are the BEST.

My pants are Tru-Spec though because the real ones are always sold out. And True-Spec FADES fast. I need to buy new pants already.

You can't use any cleaner when you wash them. Great stuff but Tru-Spec still fades quickly.

:laugh: Maybe Tru-Fade says it the best. You'll see, they'll last one year.

I'm not sure I like the multi cam, just something about it that makes me go I'm not sure I like that color/patern. I have a pair of Tru-Spec in Marpat for every day wear and they have faded over time but not all at once like some people have said they would. But I could have just gotten a pair that ended up not fadeing all at once. Plus my Tru-Spec pants have the knee pad slots. I never knew they had them untill one day I was rush and putting them on and stuck my foot down in one of the slots. I also have a black pair that hasn't held up as well, but I did pick these up really cheap. I think Tru-Spec is a pretty good brand if you can find it at a good price but from what I've read there is better out there for around the same price.

How does Propper and Tru Spec compair when it comes to sizes? I've seen the size chart for Propper and their pants have the same sizes as Tru Spec. But do they fit the same because like for me Wranglers fit better than Levis which fit me a little tight. I'm thinking of ordering a pair of Propper pants and I don't want to order something I'm gonna have to send back.

i got a pair of pants in propper's ACU cut and am just wondering what print of jersey would be best to wear with them. I love playing in BDU pants but not the jacket style top would a OMNI pat jersey look bad with it do you think?

I talked to a person at BDU.com, and apparently they have a ACU cut Multicam that they said would be much more resistant
to fading.... It's Poly/cotton Rip stop

Very well written, obviously you are a writer, I am sure that is an understatement. Thanks for the Review.

Mine give me a wedgie. No, not really, but the "Nato sizing" from Propper (another contract supplier of MultiCam, or licensed I believe is the correct term) really screwed me up with the jacket. I ordered a large and it was XXL. I felt like someone wrapped me in a role spool of fabric.

Haven't seen it in person but I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on some. I'll update if I do.
