    Tru-spec makes an ok multicam BDU. Propper is a lot better, but more expensive.

    The fabric that Tru-Spec and Propper use is going to be the same (accounting for fabric weight and material used, of course), manufactured by Crye. The same goes for 5.11, Massif and anybody else producing real Multicam products. It's all legit Crye multicam, so the pattern will be the same across all of them.

    As for cut, I actually really like Tru-Spec's TRU cut, but it'll be a bit more expensive. Propper's BDU cut is probably the best you'll do. It's an older cut so it won't look very up to date, but it's about the cheapest you're going to find a decent set of legit MC. You don't want the repro stuff, it's terrible looking. Links:

    Go for the 50/50 NYCO, unless you always are in a COLD environment, or play in manzanita and scrub oak exclusively lol. The 65/35 Poly-cotton is pretty thick...

    BDU pants will not rip in the crotch as easily as ACU cut, and are cheaper.
    Actually, I prefer SKD Tac's BDU pants, with the pockets to add knee pads, just like on ACU cut pants. They are about the same price.

    TRU tops come with velcro for nametapes and rank patch to sew on, Propper has the velcro already sewn on.

    Actually, the basic BDU top would work OK, especially if you cut off the bottom pocket and tuck it in. If you can sew, move upper pockets to the sleeves, and put the bottom pockets on the chest.
    If you can't sew, ACU cut will be more cost-effective that making the 'RAID' modification.

    Yes please no reproduction multicam copys. Out of the 10 people in my field who uses multicam only 4 uniforms are real multicam. The others are faded and extremely off. Fake multicam fades quick. Waste of your money.

    That's what I said. Both Tru-Spec and Propper use real multicam, and both make uniforms with good construction. The stuff on Airsplat is absolute crap. The material is bad, the construction is bad, and the pattern is bad. It's all bad.

    The point is, since OP is getting multicam, get real Multicam otherwise it will be crap, especially if manufactured by Rothco.
