Re: Anyone familiar with the military 4-piece sleeping bag system?
Perhaps phasing it out was an incorrect description. The woodland camo version is being replaced by a 5 piece ACU system. I'm buying up the 4 piece woodland camo modular sleep systems at auction. The newish system is the Army acu digital grey looking system that actually contains 5 pieces, the extra bag is an extra smaller stuff sack. The bags are slightly lighter weight but still made of the same materials so they may not be as durable. It is most noticeable with the bivy sack and intermediate bag. Be careful if you're buying the newer 5 piece ACU MSS used. I bought some at auction and got burned. Because the new system is still in use DRMO only gets rid of damaged bags. The woodland camo 4 piece systems are being sent to auction as soon as their returned. I ended up with a ton of bags that still had tags on them. Only a few bags showed sings of wear and only 2 damaged bags out of probably 100.
This wasn't meant to be an advertisement but if anybody is looking for one of these systems feel free to PM me. I have 5 or 6 systems left. Even if you don't want to buy one from a guy on the forum I have a lot of experience with them and can answer any questions you may have.
