These are the current issue uniform pants used in garrison by the US Army. The pants are the same style as the previous ACU uniform with slanted cargo pocket flaps and ankle pockets. The ankle, cargo and back pockets have buttoned flaps. When new the pants come treated with Permethrin, a insect repellent, that fades in effectiveness with washes. The cuffs are adjustable and the waist is buttoned for easy repair if needed. These are good overall pants for work outside and of course to complete your required uniform.

- Scorpion Camouflage, OCP – When Multicam was adopted as the replacement for UCP during deployment operations it was also considered for Army wide adoption for uniforms and gear. Licensing fees for the Multicam pattern were deemed to high and the US Army took to the predecessor, Scorpion OCP. Scorpion OCP had been developed alongside Multicam and shares most of the same design. Side by side Multicam and Scorpion look much the same, with differences being subtle. The base color of Scorpion is green, compared to brown in Multicam and the shading of all colors was changed slightly. Scorpion also has no vertical elements in the camo. Scorpion is currently referred to as OCP, or Operational Camouflage Pattern and is used for US Army Uniforms and most Army gear.
