Many Soldiers now wear their Army Combat Uniform (ACU) in the new Operational Camouflage Pattern. But, their organizational clothing and individual equipment (OCIE) have the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP). The U.S. Army wants Soldiers to know that it is okay to wear the foliage green fleece cold-weather jacket and other UCP cold-weather gear on top of their new Operational Camouflage Pattern uniform. One rule is that when a Soldier is wearing the UCP ACU, he or she must wear the undershirt, belt and boots designed for wear with the UCP ACU. However, when Soldiers wear the Operational Camouflage Pattern ACU, they can wear "any combination" of boots, belt and T-shirt.
