Military Pants FAQs
What is the difference between BDU and ACU pants?
BDU stands for Battle Dress Uniform and is the tried-and-true original military camouflage uniform. Since then, it has been replaced in every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. BDU trousers offer maximum durability in a classic style and are a budget-friendly, on-the-job option for law enforcement officers and security personnel. The ACU, or Army Combat Uniform, became the standard issue for soldiers serving during the War on Terror. Both pants are available in your choice of fabrics and both the BDUs and ACUs feature felled seams and drawstring leg closures. BDUs also have adjustable waist tabs and six pockets. The ACU pants in the OCP (Occupational Camouflage Pattern) are currently worn by today’s soldiers and feature eight pockets including two forward-tilted cargo pockets and two bellowed storage pockets on the calf.
Can civilians wear BDU or ACU pants?
Yes. Civilians can wear BDU and ACU pants. It is important to note that the impostor behavior of wearing a military uniform with any rank, insignia, patches, badges, medals, or ribbons that were not earned during military service is considered stolen valor and in some cases, a criminal act. While BDU pants are no longer worn by the U.S. Military, the Woodland Camouflage print is practical for any outdoor adventure. Whether you are a Veteran who appreciates the utility of ACUs, an enlisted soldier adding pieces to your wardrobe, or a civilian looking for pants with an unmatched utility design, Propper has your gear.
Can I wear ACUs from Propper on active duty?
The updated Propper® ACU Trouser in OCP (Occupational Camouflage Pattern) is an authentic military garment approved for active duty use by the U.S. Army. This trouser is crafted specifically to meet or exceed strict military standards for extreme protection.

Are solid color BDUs the same style and fit as the camouflage pants?
Yes. BDUs are available in ten color and pattern options and three fabric choices and all provide the same reliable fit as the battle-tested classic woodland camouflage pants. The popularity of the design and durability led us to offer additional colors to use in all environments, inside or out. Additionally, the Uniform BDU Trousers are available with a zipper fly and without the reinforced seat. The BDU pants are one of the few styles with drawstring leg closures, a favorite feature when worn with tactical boots.
What is the difference between ACUs, BDUs, and tactical pants?
ACUs, BDUs, and tactical pants are all designed to provide functional support no matter where your mission takes you. BDUs are tried-and-true affordable pants. ACUs are designed and stress-tested for today’s warfighters. Tactical pants combine the durability and utility of BDUs and ACUs with stylish options appropriate for on or off the job. All pants have deep cargo pockets and durable fabric options with different styles to address your needs on the job.
Does Propper sell shirts, hats, and accessories that match with the ACU and BDU pants?
Yes. You can purchase matching tactical shirts, jackets, and hats to be worn with the ACU or BDU pants you choose. Propper has been a proud supplier of the U.S. Department of Defense for more than 50 years. Our military clothing offerings have you covered.
