Surprisingly, there are still some Mediums & Larges in stock as of this time [9:05am, 22May19], not just the Smalls. [Naturally, no XL or XXLs, but that was a foregone conclusion...]

These uniforms are just fine, not the most ambitious pattern, but they have good fit, function, and durability.

There is no point to them. They provide no actual camouflage effect in any environment one might find themselves in where they need camouflage. Also, they had a few manufacturers make them, and none of the color pallets look the same, so you often had guys with mismatched top and bottoms. The Air Force initially made them with a liner that made them thicker and hotter than necessary, then made everybody over in the desert ditch DCU's for them. They refused to let guys cut out the inner liner, but eventually reversed that decision after an uptick in heat stroke cases, and then stopped making them with the liner altogether. They insisted they didn't need a winter and summer weight... Until they did. But when they made the summer weights, it didn't take long before they noticed they faded real quick into a purple tone for a lot of people. Then, after spending a billion or 2 dollars on r&d and ordering everybody these new uniforms they decided anybody going downrange would just wear whatever the army was wearing anyhow. So while the actual quality/durability might be the same as any button up work shirt you can get at Walmart/tractor supply/wherever... Literally everything else about them is hot garbage. They were such a money eating boondoggle that Congress passed legislation prohibiting the air Force and other branches from going down the "let's make our own uniforms" road ever again. Oh, almost forgot about the suede boots! The sage green boots basically dissolved when they came in contact with fuel, or hydraulic fluid, or grease, or oil, or cleaning solvents. Now keep in mind that basically a solid half of the people who wore this uniform most of the time are aircraft maintenance people, and grease/oil/hydro is what they do everyday. So about 5 years into it, after spending an 8 digit number on new boots for maintainers, they go "ok...ok.. you can wear your old black boots while you're doing your job, but if you need to leave the flight line for any reason, you gotta go back to the locker room and put your fancy green boots back on. So if you wanted to go to the Chow Hall, or to finance because they ducked up your pay again.... Go change your boots first!

Yeah, I'm sure you were fun to be around through the trials and tribulations of the horrifying journey of a uniform transition.
