Introduced in the early 2000's, the ACU (Army Combat Uniform) is current United States Army forces battle uniform, consisting of combat shirt and cargo trousers, and the successor to both the classic Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) and Desert Camouflage Uniform (DCU). Comparing to its predecessors, it features a number of significant design changes along with a different camouflage, with UCP camo being its official pattern, although the MultiCam version was also issued lately. Among many improvements applied in the ACU, trousers are two thigh storage pockets, tilted forward for easy access and with elastic drawstring and Velcro for closure when on the move, two calf storage pockets (one on each leg) with a Velcro closure, as well as Velcro pouches designed for knee pad inserts. Available at the UK based Military 1st online store is a wide selection of ACU pants and cargo trousers, from such manufacturers as Helikon, in a range of colours and camouflages, including woodland camo, MultiCam and popular A-TACS AU pattern.
