Well I'm out of the Army now, but I do remember that when we switched from the DCU to the ACU, the temperature went up in my uniform by a billion freaking degrees.
I don't know what the hell they made that crap out of but holy God that crap was hot. Now I see soldiers wearing that new under armor looking shirt with ACU sleeves, I remember seeing that in an Army times when I was in a shopette. Remember thinking, "Damn wish I had that."

Whatever they do either make it so a soldier can role up their sleeves, or make the material more breathable for Pete's sake.
