NSW OPERATOR COMBAT SHIRT
Greetings to All.
I would like to share the experience and the stories of the NSW special modified BDU, When I still in the military service during the year of 2007, July, during my vacation I saw the SEALs photos in Fallujah.
When I first saw this special BDU, I am still guessing which tatical company manufacture this type of BDU, and luckily I was able to hook up with my friend who just got out A-Stan because his injuries in his back during the halo drop..
Then I ask him right away about this type of BDU…most of the people think that the weather in Iraq and Afghanistan is similar to each other, There is big difference between day and night in the desert but in Iraq which is quite different, it is usually hot the whole day not only the day time and most of the mission of the SOF is night patrol or capture some insurgent from block to block, road to road and wearing the G.I BDU for the long time mission is just getting hotter and hotter because of the heavy equipments they carry on their body, their BDU is always wet and smelly…
Then my friend answer me: Dude..haha..they just modified the BDU within the base themselves, because the C.P combat uniform’s Idea is great for this type of weather…the problem is it is too expensive..so why not making of our own.
After I heard his answer, I was so excited and went to an old military shop and show these photos to my friend and the shop owner, but that time no body has agreed with me and the idea of combined the BDU and UA shirts together because specially on the shoulder part it is easily falling down due the the weight of the BDU is heavier then the UA shirt.
But my inner being never gives up and I believe what my friend has told me and I tell the shop owner to give me one 2nd hand 3 color desert BDU and one UA heat gear shirt and decide to make this experimental BDU with an old tailor that I know.
After Modify the BDU it is not easily fall off or destroy as they mentioned in the shop, but the tailor must do this job well or it will just ruined both the BUD and UA shirt…This experimental type is with the heat gear UA shirt which is tight fit to the body…but after I try it for few times it is just getting hotter and hotter…so I have ask my other friend who deals UA shirts for the sports players…he saw the tag and material he told me it was ” FAKE”…..DAMMM…no wonder this does really get you HEAT UP!!! I personally hate the shops selling fake gears and tell the others is real.
I am still curious about which type of Under Armour shirt the SEALs are using to modify..the tight fit or the loose gear…but after I saw the Photo shows the UA logo and the crumble shirts when seals are folding his sleeve in the photo, I decide to order another UA loose gear t shirt, sand color from the US website.
30 days later..the Gen.2 has born.
In the photos, SEAL version of the modify BDU did not add the 3 color desert bdu fabric on the shoulder part because..
1. Hard to Modify
2.Takes longer time.
3. SEALs style is free style and as long as the functions are there. they are good.
So I decide to copy what the SEALs do and did not add the shoulder part and try it our if it is good or not. After the Mil show with the heavy gear and plate carrier…it shows obviously on the shoulder part has some scratch marks but it means no harm to the BDU and the function of the shirt itself.
When I wear this special type of BDU, it is really comfortable even you have lots of gear on and light weight and fast of sweatability, generally the Modified shirt is good but the details still has rooms for improvements.
This is just my experience and used review and hoping to bring you guys more info and experience next time.
於是我馬上問他照片上BDU的是由來…很多人認為IRAQ的天氣和阿富汗相似,早晚溫差很大～但是 IRAQ 法魯加是平地城市屬於躁熱的天氣,加上他們的任務是Block to Block 街頭接街尾長時間的巡邏和攻堅,穿著BDU都是溼透的,長時間下來很不舒服.
他回答我說：Dude(兄弟)ha ha…..自改的啦～看了C.P的Combat Uniform覺的IDEA很棒 but too expensive..So..我們也來搞ㄧ下～
手臂和BDU接縫處都沒很牢也沒當初其它人說的不容易,不過裁縫師的技術還是很重要,ㄧ個不小心 BDU 和排汗衣都會毀掉.實驗版的這件是以緊身版的排汗衣做的～Damm it..後來穿起來覺的越來越不排汗,請教了ㄧ下專門賣UA的老闆才得知那件UA是對岸貨!!!:shock:
