    “Coverall” better mean “Exoskeletal Robotic Refueling Device.”

    …procurement of 1,670 fuel handler coveralls from *each* contractor.

    1,670 uniforms x 3 contractors = 5010 uniforms total.
    5010 uniforms / $45,000,000 = $8982.04 for each uniform.
    Which is still very expensive, but much more reasonable.

    Attention to detail people. 😉

    Why are these overalls costing so bloody much? Are they FR & fuel resistant, guaranteed to not build up any static electricity what so ever, even if they are I still don’t think that would justify some $8,000+ per coverall.

    Another question is, why? Why did the Army even put out a solicitation for new coveralls? What is wrong with the coveralls they’re currently using? They’re coveralls, how much improvement can be there or need in a pair of coveralls? What, did the Army procure their current batch in UCP and now that they’re looking for a new camo is this new procurement so that they can coveralls in each of the 3 new patterns that they will be selecting?
