Multicam BDU Brands Question

Hey guys I have been looking for BDU's and noticed there are many different brands that make them. Is it true that the colours vary from each brand because in the pictures they all look different. I was wondering what company has the best colouring. Please reply.

Thanks,
KraGzz

it really depends on which you prefer. But generally if you buy a better brand it will last longer and wont fade as quickly as cheaper brands. Tru Spec is a top brand

I personally had problems with both the Tru Spec and Propper pants with fadding and colour leaching. I switched to Fullclip BDUs and never had a problem. They are a bit more expensive but worth it if you want long term durability and colours that won't run and fade.

I have had a set of acu's (acu isnt a camo its the cut of uniform to replace bdu's the "acu" pattern is called UPC) in multicam. the combat jacket was a repro of truspec from china, the pants and boonie were actual truspec. I have had no problems with fading or wearing (its been a year and a half of playing every sat and some sundays) the chinese brand has performed the same as actual truspec. I slid down a gravel embankment which tore up the plastic button without even damaging the fabric.

I love my Tru-Spec 24-7 line pants. They fit great, are really durable and im able to move around in them easily. I do highly recomend them. I found the old Propper BDU pants to be hit or miss. I had a few and they were okay, didnt fade much. Except the black ones. The black ones where cheap garbage. I hated them. They fadded so fast (even washing inside out in cold water, no detergent) it was insane. 3 washes and they were gray. The belt loops ripped off easily, and the button on one came off. I know that this is just my personal opinion, but i had a bad experience with them. I really hope their quality has improved over the last 2 years.

One trick to reduce fading on the knock off patterns or the slightly lower quality/less expensive ones is this:
1)take your brand new bdu's and turn them inside out
2) toss them in the washing machine, set to COLD water, MED size load
3) toss in a cup of normal table salt (NO detergent)
4) let the cycle run, hang dry bdu's.

the salt will help set the dye into the fabric better.

Or you could look for a bdu company that uses actual Crye Multicam.. the real deal wears better than anything else.

I think the thing the people have pointed out is the fabric. 50/50 nyco is considered to be the best, but is also the most expensive. Down here it is around 150$ for a TRU multicam set (50/50), but you can get 60/40 polyester cotton as low as 60$ for a set.
