H.P.F.U SEAL UNIFORM
From the very mysterious AOR1 or so called DG2 tested firstly by the ST6 members also known as DEVGRU, the first time I saw this pattern I thought it was just normaly like the marines digital bdu but once I look into the details, I found out the color has slightly different and the SEALs are using the combat suit was made by Crye Precision for testing purpose in desert warfare. I once saw the CP DG2 uniform for auction on ebay, just the shirt alone will cost about 800 USD, the price was so crazy and I could not spend that much just for a shirt.
Later on, I was told that the SEALs bought 1100 sets of the HPFU instead of the CP version, even though there was no photos that SEALs were using that time but I still belive the source that SEALs were using this bdu set as for their combat missions. So I decide to order them since last year november but I only get my hands on only one set after 4 month of waiting. I waited so long and almost even forgot about it.

When I just received the set of the uniform and my bill the same time, from the outside look I cant belive how expensive this bdu set is, later on when I open the packaging , I realize why this unifrom is so expensive, now take a look at the pic below all the pockets on the shirt and pants all have the ” Integrated Tourniquet System” the whole set comes with 8 pieces of theIntegrated Tourniquet System and the shirt may also look simple but it also have the fire resistance function.
After checking more about this uniform set, I realize this is not just normal bdu in the market, the worksmanship is really detail and comes with strong and holding stiches in every part of the uniform, it is so complicated that I think to make this set labor fee must be really higher then all others in the market.
