"Ive fielded these for about a year now, so I figure thats enough time to gather information for a proper review.

Ive not exactly been easy on this set, sliding on my butt(Mostly voluntarily.) Knee slides and plenty of hooking twigs and the like and thus far no snags, rips or tears to speak of. The stitching is pretty top notch as is the material for taking abuse although I highly recommend a light shirt under the top as it is unbearably itchy and rough, especially along the collar seams.

Despite no vent flaps or mesh, it breathes rather well, I run pretty hot and am not exactly the owner of an Adonis like figure, but even after extended periods Im typically not overheated by this uniform, even under my chest rig. On the other side of the thermometer they also do a pretty decent job of keeping you warm, again I suggest something under the shirt to aid it but it keeps me warm down into the low 40's pretty easily.

One detracting part, to me at least, are the pockets in the pants, they are too shallow and open to reliably hold anything even when off the field. My phone slipped out of my pocket driving home in these. Its not a huge issue because you shouldnt really be carrying anything in them anyways if you are going to be physical.

I am also not a huge fan of the buttons, This is where the uniform reflects its price the most. The holes are by no means sized correctly, some too large, others so tight its a literal stretch to get the button through. This is only on the jacket however as the pants didnt give me any issue. The wrist buckles are the worst of the bunch by far and you'll really need someone to help you get them fastened.

So, a wrap up.

Pros:
Strong material.
Good temperature control in heat and cold.
Good stitching.
Pretty cheap, especially when on sale.

Cons:
Lack of QC on button holes.
Inside of material is scratchy and itchy on bare skin, especially around the collar.
Pockets too loose and large.

"I absolutely love this BDU! The color is amazing and the camo pattern blends in well with woodland settings, but I haven't had a chance to use them yet seeing as the weather where I live is pretty bad right now. I am pairing this camo with my coyote brown plate carrier, which kinda matches with the brown in the pattern except the PC is a shade lighter. As for fitment, I'm 6' 1", 160 lbs and this fits pretty well. The top was a bit loose to my body in the middle but I am going to install some straps and buttons on it to bring it a bit closer into my body without any other necessary modification. The pants fit well also, and they allow me to wear a pair of jeans under them and also allow plenty of movement, whether it be running, crouching, whatever. The pants also have belt loops on them so you will be able to adjust them to your liking. As for durability, they seem well made. As I said, I haven't really had a chance to use them, but the fabric seems durable and should last.

PROS:
Looks awesome
Fits well for a taller, more skinny person
Great functionality
Great deal for the price compared to other BDU, got them on sale for $36!

CONS:
Nothing yet!

"Great bdu set they blend into a woodland area extremely well and also in the darker indoor fields the worked great too I only saw a little ripping in the pants but it was only because I accidentally ripped them overall great bdu set

"These are awesome!! They are very durable and can be washed without shrinking. I have had many people tell me that this camo blends in perfectly, and I can actually "disappear" sometimes according to my opponents. Sometimes my own teammates can't see me from feet away. I live in BC, Canada where there are lots of pine, spruce, logs, and some thick brush and there is no better camouflage than this for the terrain! The only problem I had was that when I got it it was waay too big on me. I am 145 lbs., 5ft 11in, but the sleeves where fat, pants where too long and the waistline was real big! This "Large" is more like an XL or XXL from where I come from. Got them sewn in and they're awesome!
