How much ACU uniform?

If you want to buy an ACU uniform, how much you need to pay?

The cost of an Army Combat Uniform (ACU) can vary depending on several factors, including the vendor, the location of the purchase, and any customization options requested. On average, an ACU uniform set, which includes a coat and pants, can cost anywhere from $60 to $100. Keep in mind that this is just an estimate and prices may vary.

But the production cost of ACU uniform is around $11.5-12.5 per set.

History of ACU Uniform(from Wikipedia)


In early 2004, some U.S. Army soldiers in Iraq were issued the “Close Combat Uniform”, a variant of the Desert Camouflage Uniform (DCU) that featured new features such as shoulder pockets affixed with hook-and-loop “Velcro” fasteners, chest-worn rank insignia, and a new collar. The experimental features used on the CCU were eventually incorporated into the ACU, which was publicly announced in June 2004.

Initial fielding

The process of replacing the U.S. Army’s BDUs and DCUs with the ACU was set to begin in April 2005. However, the fielding process began two months earlier through the Rapid Fielding Initiative. Soldiers from the 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team were the first in the U.S. Army to receive the ACU, subsequently deploying with them into Iraq in May 2005.

1, I just see about 3.2-3.3meters fabric why do you say 3.8meters?

It does not depend on how much fabric is on the uniform, but on how much fabric is used to produce the suit. For bigger sizes(3XL,4XL,5XL)use more fabric.

2,  If we buy large quantities can the cost go down?

Yes sure. For large quantities, fabric and accessories purchase costs will go down, and better to control material and accessories loss, also negotiable worker costs.

3, Are the costs the same all the time?

No. Fabric price fluctuations and worker costs are the biggest factors.
