I know a lot of people's sources for ABUs are drying up; Sportsman's Guide has new old stock on sale currently in sizes small-XL. I have no interest in SG besides being a satisfied customer. I do find it kind of odd that they're sized S-M-L instead of chest size/dress size, but they're made by Propper. If the Vanguard Pink ABU's can pass muster, I don't doubt that these can.

Keep in mind the NFPA uniform type is 100% cotton and wrinkles like crazy.

That's the way Woodland BDU's were sized.  I found it odd that ABU would be sized so exactly.  OCP won't be.

I have the Propper ones.  They are great quality.
