Wow, ok just finished this great thread. I have an early MAA pat3 and wear the hell out of it. I wear the shirt/jacket in the fall all the time. Wash it a lot. Never had any difficulties. Very strong construction. As for the pants, don't wear them as much and never had a seam issues. Till last con. Popped a seam on the crotch. The great thing is I never noticed till then that it has 2 rows of thread. I only popped the one. So, all I can saw "WOW!" great work. Other pants would have ripped all the way thru. Now remember this is an early pat3 set. I do not know if he continued the same workmanship through out the run.

Well, apart from one of my belt loops popping open and the side of one of the lower trouser leg pockets ripping away (whilst fumbling in my pocket to get my phone out) my MAA BDUs have lasted pretty well. Comparing to Gman666's pair from MAA though, it's pretty clear to see that corners were cut in he construction towards the end :/

Not quite flannelette but it is feminine ... random find in a local Op Shop -

Didn't look too closely at the time, but it looked to be some sort of hooded jacket.

I am just glad to have options. I am with Kevin. I spent so much time looking at different camo before buying safariflage. I later replaced with the MAA 3pat.
This is a good problem to have.

Oddly enough, Kevin's pyjamas were pretty close to the screen stuff.

Well I've found this thread particularly interesting and would like to thanks both Paul and Greg for going to the effort of putting it together. Opened my eyes to the vast differences in the product available.

It would be great to have included the fourth (or first, depends how you look at it) product that was available too.

Magnus, It's not mandatory to read every thread. :wink: :)

I personally quite value people's opinions. They tell a story that photographs alone can not.

I think the various reviews within this thread, and a number of discussions that have arisen throughout, would tell me everything I want to know if I were looking to buy (I'm not financially in a position to do so right now). It's certainly something I'll remember for the future.

Anyone doing a review is going to "state their opinion" How many times have you heard a bad review of a movie you liked.
We all have our personal likes and dislikes.

Lets not start insulting one another for stating an opinion. If a statement crosses a line the Mods will do something about it.

Now, in my opinion... I like being able to see all the different patterns compared alongside each other to show the
difference between them. When I got my MAA 3 Pats it was the only game in town. Too bad it was near the end of MAA's
involvement in providing items. Knowing if something is prewashed due to the possibility of shrinking, any extra prep needed
(dying), and/or special cleaning instructions is something I want to know about too.

Comparison of MAA 3rd Pattern. 100% Cotton Twill vs. Poly-Cotton Ripstop.

Cotton BDUs have been washed multiple times... lets say... 10 times?

Polycotton haven't been worn and I don't believe I ever washed them. If they
Have been washed, it's been once at most.

I should mention that the camo pattern doesn't quite match up now. I attribute this to some slight shrinkage
from washing/drying the cotton versions. Otherwise they're fine.

Edit: Thread Locked. A few posts deleted that served no purpose other than to irritate people like me.

Look at the pictures and decide for yourselves which BDU pattern/color/shape/taste is right for you.

Currently, only SPAT and AARON are offering similar patterns to the USCM BDUs seen in the film.

Contact them for additional information.

Caveat Emptor.
