The new Rip-stop Airman Battle Uniform (RABU) will be available to Airmen at 16 U.S. bases and through the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) starting in June. The wear policy for the light-weight RABUs will be exactly the same as for the ABUs. The only difference between the ABU and the RABU is the material, which will make the RABU lighter and cooler with a wrinkle-resistant finish. A list of the 16 clothing sales locations to receive the new RABU is available online. The plan for world-wide distribution of the RABU is currently in development.
