Good write man. I know that your allowed a certain amount of money to buy gear, or your allowed to go beyond the budget with your own cash. My question is, are you allowed to buy your own choice of pattern in camo as long as it suits the terrain? Like multi cam or something like the new highlander kryptek stuff (thier desert terrain pattern) or atac au? I know that the army( I think it was), were considering kryptek and then one of the newer digital patterns won out because of a bulk buy money issue or something like that. Do my question is are you allowed to wear your own camo once deployed?
