Protective Combat Uniform (PCU)

These pants are part of the US Protective Combat Uniform (PCU) system that came to be in 2002. The PCU system is divided into seven layers that are combined with each other to protect against various weather conditions. The basic philosophy is that air trapped between layers of clothing will create the best form of insulation. It is not necessary to wear all seven layers at the same time. You pick and choose those that you need.

Level 5 (L5) includes the softshell jacket and pants. In cold weather, the L5 jacket and pants replace the camouflage uniform. Underneath you can add the L3 fleece layer and on top of it, you can put the L6 hardshell if needed.

Features

  • Zippered fly
  • Waistband snap closure
  • Belt loops for a max. 45 mm (1.8”) belt
  • Suspender loops (suspenders included)
  • Zippered hand pockets and thigh cargo pockets with drain holes
  • Left calf patch pocket with drain holes
  • Side-zippered access points to underlayers
  • Reinforced articulated knees
  • Ankle zips for easy pants on, pants off action

These breathable and packable pants are designed for winter use. They protect from the wind and dry very quickly but they aren’t mud pants. They work in snow but for rainstorms, you should put on the L6 hardshell or your ass will get wet.

Materials

The shell fabric is 99% Nylon and 1% Spandex. The trim is made from 100% Nylon and the mesh 100% polyester. The use of these materials stems from the experience that it is impossible to stay completely dry in any case. So, the best option is to use materials that lose water as quickly as possible.

Condition

Unissued US military surplus. These haven’t seen any wars or exercises, just some huge ass warehouse. So they are in very good condition. Beyond makes some of their stuff in some galaxy far, far away. However, these pants are made in the land of the free and would cost quite a pretty penny if you found them brand new somewhere.

Wear these for work in the tundra in -40°C, with just a level 1 merino baselayer and basic 5.11 pants. They're adjustable, completely windproof and kept me warm. They run big in the thigh and calf because your probably going to be wearing them with work pants underneath. Theyre pretty snow proof, I've been caught out in some bad storms already but unless im trudging through knee high snow its a non issue. They are my favorite pants for cross country skiing as well. The suspenders are a great bonus. 4 stars because 2 of the snap have failed already, one on the waist and one around an ankle cuff.As well as the waist adjustment is minimal (28inch waist wearing size large) Also the cargo pockets need to be buttoned, as your items like a wallet or phone will fall out easily with just the velcro. Even then I would highly recommend storing items in your pants underneath these, or else you'll end up like me in -30°C whiteout looking for your truck keys haha. If you really want I bought some hook and look off this site and replaced the front snap with a big canadian button and re did all the pockets with just hook and loop.
