After talking to danneskjold on the phone today while I was at REI, I figured I'd post the PCU/APCU (Protective Combat Uniform/Advanced Protective Combat Uniform) layering guides.

PCU Layering Guide Card:

I hope this prove to be useful.

Just stumbled on that: one of the designers of the PCU system comments on how it works, ideal use, etc. Thought that might be a good read for others too.

Interesting read!
What he says about material toughness makes me happy and confident.
Conker from what I know you have a Pata PCU L5 and I assume you use it quite a bit.
Any abrasion by now? Especially on the elbows, which I guess are some of the most stressed areas in tactical applications.

You guys might like this too. It's an old article about the development of PCU.
