Default AF RABU uniforms?? Who has them?

Does anyone have these? Are they rediculously thin??

Also do they have the same annoying color shading issues like the ABU? Or did they get that right??

I am hoping I can get issued some sets for my upcoming deployment.

So wont know for a while. My base BX isn't getting any since we aren't a "hot location base." Fucking BS...nobody from AAFES has apparently ever stepped outside in a St Louis summer.

I agree with you! I'm in the middle of the Mojave Desert!!! Its been 110+ deg for weeks straight! But we are not one of the locations either....But Eglin Florida???

I went to buy a new uniform yesterday and I couldnt find a color matching pair!! Total BS!

I just got a pair from us patriot. 150 bucks with everything sewn on and shipped. They match perfectly, and they are way more comfortable.

AF can just forego with the ABUs and switch to multicams, imo.

Yes! Look way better IMO.

I'm picking up a few new sets of the lightweight AbU's come the first. I checked them out already look and feel much better. This heat down here is killing me.

im been thinking about trying to order some of them for deployments, but i know england dont have them because its a cold base, i was at luke a few weeks ago and they didn't have what i needed,
right now im wearing a set of ABU's that i got back in 07 when i was in alaska, there great for the cold of england but in the sand box they suck

hope to have a set before my next go at the sandbox

YES! Your UDM should give you a letter and take it to clothing sales.

it depends on the mission you are supporting...most multicam uniforms are currently reserved for anyone going outside the wire...
