Emerson Tactical ACU Combat Uniform Set w/ Build in Knee / Elbow Pad for Airsoft (Size: Small)
by Andrew E. Date Added: February 11, 2010
I just got this pairing a few days ago, and I'm very impressed with it! The pads are pretty easy to get in, and, once fixed in place, don't shift around in their pockets, due to small velcro tabs. The pants, I think, are the coolest part. They've got large pockets all over which include a mag pouch, a pair of clips and loops as well as extra large belt loops that are ideal for use in conjunction with a leg rig or something with a broad belt and buckle. There are zippers near the bottom of each pant leg that help with putting on tall boots. The zippers themselves are quite nice.
The design of the top makes load bearing vests very comfortable to wear, as the chest portion is tight against your skin. It sports a high collar, a velcro square for patches (one on either arm) and elbow pads.

One thing I'd like to point out: the under armour part, although high quality, is only single stitched. This wouldn't really be a problem, except that whole part does sit comfortably snug around your chest. This poses no issues while you're wearing it, but it probably will when you decide to take it off. It would be a good idea to roll the bottom of the shirt up to your neck and 'then' remove the top so that there isn't any stress placed on the single line of stitches that line the sides of the shirt.
If you remove it as you would anything ordinary shirt and just pull it off, the seam might pop in places. I found this out the hard way, and had to take care taking it off the rest of the way.

That being said, I would just like to mention that while the top is on, there arenít any motions you can make that would otherwise put stress on or damage this part (the stitching of the under armour), and that the rest of the top and the pants are of a very durable make, and overall I'd say these are the nicest set of BDU I've ever owned. They offer a very modern and stylish look and are very functional, thanks to the abundant additions of pads, pockets and under armour.

Iím glad I chose to look around before buying these! If I'd purchased them from a Canadian site, I would have had these in about 3-5 days, but they would have cost me over $200! Evike has a fantastic selection at great prices, so it was well worth the time this BDU spent in customs ;)!
