im not a fan of the UBACS shirt

specially in the desert, the material on the sleeves is too thick, with the padding adding extra layers... gets a bit sweaty

tailored brown t shirt with desert sleeves worked better

These woodland UBACs were manufactured for the first round of the PECOC trials that have just finished. There were 3 version which were only slightly different but from 3 different manufactures.

All went down well with the trial troops. At the moment all the various versions of PECOC (3 at the moment and a soon to be decided hybrid) have a woodland UBACs as part of the system. Also for info all the replacements for the shirt\LW Jkt are body armour compatible.

This is a classic case of the MOD getting stuff made up for trials and the manufacturers deciding that they will make some money before the main issue. A good piece of kit and a reasonable price in civvy street but about 450% more than what the MOD will pay for the same item. How much do you want one now is the question!

Also note that the IRR standard will change soon so all the manufacturers currently using IRR will have to change or not be hitting new improved standards
