My hubby has plenty of uniforms laying around and he's getting out next year from the airforce, soooo he let me tear em up.  They are actually pretty huge bags but u can't tell from the pic.  Now hubby's mom wants a desert camo one, only not so big! She'll cram it up so full of junk..lol.  I used some heavy fabrics on the inside, kinda like corderoy/ uniform material to match the heavyness of the dcu and bdu pants.  They are way sturdy.  The big pocket on the outside is the original pocket from the uniform pants, I had to use the pocket, I love the shape of it? (dunno why just do)

Very nice, my bf has been out of the military for a few years now, but he hasn't let go of his uniforms... Maybe if I told him I'd carry them with pride (and full of crap Wink.

You can always find some at an Army surplus store. The closer you live to a military base, the more plentiful and cheaper the uniforms are.
