    What type of Corura NyCo is that? I t looks lighter and “airier” than the usual type.

    Shouldn’t Massif produce their “Jungle Uniform” in multicam tropic?
    seems to be a more appropriate camo.
    And let’s be real; any units purchasing them specifically for jungle can probably use that camo pattern…

      It’s a feature on a few of the current crop of special/limited-issue Jungle Uniforms like the Tyr one and also included in the new IHWCU that is authorized for wear on June 1 (according to specs and pics anyways – I haven’t seen them yet)

    SSD, having seen both, can you comment on how these compare to the new Improved Hot Weather Combat Uniform (IHWCU)(also known as the 25th ID Jungle Uniform) which will be available for wear, purchase, and OCIE issue starting a week from now on June 1 (As you reported back in April based on the ALARACT [which I’ve still hear literally nothing else about from anyone else, lol])

    In what way is this Massif option better or worse than that? Does the fabric feel more/less durable? More/less pajama like?
    Thanks

      Both fabrics contain Cordura fibers. This one goes a bit further with a lot more ventilation as well as mesh backed full front zipped chest pockets like on the level five.

      I am wearing the IHWCU now here in Hawaii and I like that its back to the slanted arm pockets. I do not like the one above and there is also a top button in which the IHWCU does not have.

    Good idea, if mesh is thick enough to keep away even small ticks. Well, ask me in two weeks:)
