    I agree, to go to the expense of a new uniform and not adopt a modern camouflage is nuts. The Fibrotex system looks the better option. In addition, there appears to be several inherent faults in the cut and design of the projected new uniform.

    The members of Shayetet 13 who raided the KLOS C were wearing this uniform.

    A new camo pattern would also help in identify friend or foe and make it much harder for Hamas and Co. to dress up as IDF soldiers.

    Also the pictures are taken in the Shayetet's base.

    Looks like there are pockets on the side as well as the small ones in front. What the hell were they thinking when they made all that black velcro everywhere? I despise the colour too. They all looks like power cable repair men.

    I agree completely. There has to be someone, somewhere in the upper echelons of the IDF who understands uniform design and the concept of camouflage. It's almost like they are deliberately making a total, expensive mess of it.

    Yes, and I dont think its even a money issue.
    Its just like you said, that not very smart people sitting in this departments of the army and are not familiar with all the new equipment and gear that is around for the last 4-6 years.
    For example, look at the helmet.
    It seems very uncomfortable and if you pay attention to pictures of soldiers, they not wearing it properly, because its to large ( ther is only one size btw, which is Large)
