It's not that great of a pic, but I was wondering if anyone can tell what type of pouches he's using?

Hi,
In that Djibouti freefall pic, it's a Sage Int. Enhanced Battle Rifle (fancy pants M14). Ask me how I know. ; ) Also, the guy in the top big picture (the one with all the mags across his chest) had that rig made for him, it's not a COTS item.
Regards,
G

I'd say probably not if they can help it. Alot of the time they are attached to other units so they would wear what they are wearing - and secondly the ABU(despite the name) is not really designed for combat use(pocket config, colours, etc).

The colors, and pocket configuration(mostly colors) Do not differ much from the ACU's, and the ABU's are a combat uniform.
