TRUSPEC Introduces the New BDU Xtreme…Exclusively in A-TACS Camo

A-TACS Camo in partnership with TRU-SPEC introduce new uniform style with a deep connection to the history of SOCOM–paired exclusively with A-TACS Camo, the ultimate concealment solution.

Since the inception of modern Special Forces groups in the early 1950s, it was commonplace for many of them to modify the uniforms they wore to better suit the specifics of their mission criteria.

In keeping with that tradition at the beginning of the Global War On Terrorism, Special Forces groups began a new series of modifications to their existing Battle Dress and Desert Combat Uniforms. Chest and arm pockets were modified to enable easier access when wearing protective or load bearing gear as well as additional modifications required to make it easier to remove identifiable personal and unit information as needed. Noisy Velcro closures were replaced with buttons for stealth and easier repair in the field. A simpler, less restrictive uniform cut also made the uniforms more adaptable to rapidly changing mission objectives.

The new TRUSPEC BDU Xtreme (BDU-X) was developed in partnership with A-TACS Camo and was created with the input of Special Operations and Law Enforcement personnel. It is a hybrid uniform design and bridges the gap between the original BDU and the modern ACU uniform by incorporating many of the best features of both. Cut from soft yet durable 50/50 Vat Dyed NyCo that resists fading and shrinking these uniforms are built to perform.

A-TACS Camo…The Ultimate Concealment Solution–Enhanced

These new uniforms are available exclusively in the complete “X” series of camouflage patterns from A-TACS Camo, including New A-TACS AU-X and FG-X along with A-TACS iX and Ghost. Like the BDU-Xtreme, the “X” series of A-TACS Camo patterns was developed with the input of Special Operations personnel.

Mixing and matching camouflage patterns has also been an effective strategy for Special Operations throughout their long history of service. It is with that understanding that the new A-TACS AU-X and FG-X camo patterns along with A-TACS iX , are designed to mixed and matched with one another to further break the human silhouette for maximum levels of concealment in a wide variety of environments.

The “X” series of patterns utilize a shared common color palette with the ratio of brown and green tones altered between each of the respective patterns. This enables the end user to pair one set of Nylon Gear in the A-TACS iX (intermediate) pattern with either the FG-X (tropical), the AU-X (arid), or to utilize the iX pattern from head-to-toe in transitional terrain to easily maintain effective levels of concealment without changing over expensive nylon gear.

Simply put, the A-TACS Camo X Series is a complete concealment solution with infinite adaptability.

      They left out WWII but this covers Vietnam.

    A BDU with A-TACS Camo. No special materials like Gore or Schoeller, no new pocket design, no hot functions like NIR or mosquito protection.
    I miss the “extreme” part.

  3. Chad Peterson says:

    propper has A-TACS at a good price. starting to like that blend.

    • Steveb says:

      IME, the Poly-Cotton fabric from Propper has problems. It fades rapidly and pills badly. The 50/50 NYCO uniforms from TruSpec are far better and well worth it.
