    ACU Test item? Bluewater Defense Shirt

    Post by Alec51198 on Sun Aug 18, 2013 2:57 pm













    Hey guys, I am calling upon you again to help try to ID this shirt. I picked it up the other day thinking it was just a normal shirt that was new, with the intent of just selling it on eBay. I began to hang it up to take pictures and noticed the sleeves looked weird, maybe a homemade job, then I found the IR tabs on the pocket and figured it was a test item? All the test items I have seen are clearly marked Test Item A, Test Item B, but this one isn't. I am not expert but could this be a shirt made for SEALS? I am familiar with Bluewater and I now they make MASS grey items, but ACU too? Any thoughts or idea's are appreciated!Very Happy

    looks like current production with the newer changes. I like the new addition of buttons instead of velcro to lower sleeves. Heres a like i found on the contract.

    Also take note that its insect repellent treated. You can't just throw it in the wash with regular clothes, it has to be washed separately and specially.

    Nice photography !!!

    This uniforms has some good improvements over the last cut. As it should be.

    Troop input is an essential component in the evolving process of bettering equipage.

    Good reminder, Darktrooper, not a good idea to wash this type of uniforms with regular clothes..
