    I don't need anything nice. It can be cheap material.

    Have you tried searching for it on Google? Or on eBay?

    Just FYI, ACU is a just a uniform cut not a camouflage.

    The hideous pattern that is typically associated with it is UCP, or universal camouflage pattern.

    Wow thanks for the info. Sooo ACU is the army version of BDUs? And ACUPAT is the same as UCP?

    ACU is about one notch above using black. I suggest Multicam or A-TACS, from tru-spec.

    Yeah I know. I called my friend crazy because he said its one of the best camouflages. I just want it as a back-up. And I have a loadout in mind. Plus multi-cam can get expensive. :)

    Either you wear it because you like it, and suffer consequences that comes with it. Or wear something that works. It's that simple.

    Yes, it would work on repelling the enemies because of the stinch.

    UCP only works in the winter with snow, in my experience.

    I did a ton of shopping around at all the local Army surplus stores in my area. $30+ for ACU pants OR shirts. I hit Ebay and got a set for $28 delivered.

    Guys don't hate on him too much. UCP is a very effective pattern that blends in incredibly well when you need to hide in a recruiter's office, on that one ugly couch that smells kinda like cough drops and cat pee your aunt won't get rid of, or if you need to draw fire from your teammates.
