Modified BDU.  Chest pockets relocated to arms with Velcro closure and large Velcro squares added.  Hip pockets relocated to chest at a slight inward angle, and Velcro added for name tapes.  I found this one outside Ft. Bragg.

Modified BDU.  Chest pockets relocated to arms with Velcro closure and Velcro on pockets and flaps.  IR squares also sewn on with male Velcro strips indicating "A+" blood type used to cover IR squares when not needed.  Velcro backed IR US flag patch.  Hip pockets relocated to chest with Velcro added for name tapes.  I found this outside Ft. Bragg.

Modified BDU.  "Ghosting" of hip pockets, name tape, NCO rank, Airborne and Air Assault badges, and Special Forces SSI with Special Forces Tab.  It is common practice for Soldiers to have "Garrison" uniforms and "Field" uniforms.  Field uniforms evolve from garrison uniforms that become faded, torn, or stained, and no longer pass standards for garrison use.  I believe that this uniform was at one time a garrison uniform that was later modified once it became a field uniform.  Hip pockets relocated to arms and Velcro squares added.  Strobe pouch sewn to right arm.  Luminescent "Cats Eyes" or "Ranger Eyes" sewn on back of collar.  I found this one outside Ft. Bragg early into the GWOT, and believe it to be pre-GWOT.

US Special Forces used and modified BDU combat set.

It is cut to be like the Crye G2 combat set. Knee and elbow pads have been added.

The combat shirt has had a piece of Under Armor shirt added to the bottom as a way to lengthen it so it could be tucked into the pants. Probably used in the 2010-2014 time frame (thanks, Jimmy)
