The Marine Corps Tried to Redesign Its Physical Training Uniform. After 3 Years, It’s Abandoning the Project


The Marine Corps has ended a plan to revamp its physical fitness uniform, according to the service. The initiative lasted nearly three years but produced no new uniform.

In 2020, the service set out to redesign the trunks and undershirt that make up the Marine Corps warm weather physical training uniform, or PTU.

The first prototype of the uniform kept the classic green color scheme but featured knee-length shorts, moisture-wicking fabric and thick reflective lines on the back of the shirt. After negative feedback from Marines, the Corps tried again to design a better uniform, but the effort was short-lived.
