I agree with the problems of camouflage, in fact I don't like
camouflage. They also make the pants in drab olive -- which is very
similar to the color of scout pants -- black, slate, and navy.
The individuals that wear them in my unit wear the drab olive and the
black. Both of these still look sharp when worn with the scout shirt.
