      1. Huh. Is it being fielded or is it still experimental?

        The multicam site says they’re geared up for production but I’m not sure if that means service-wide or what.

        1. Not sure who is all on the list to get it or how much has been fielded. I think it LOOKS sharp. No idea on actual effectiveness.

  1. I’ve notice a lot of soldiers wearing it in Afghanistan. I was surprised to find out how many other nations are using it. According to wiki, many special forces, such as the UK and Australia, are using it as well as special Russian units.
