Talk about timely, I can actually say I am impressed.

1. The 98th Air Force virtual uniform board authorized wear of the sage green fleece as an outer garment with the Airman Battle Uniform (ABU).



2. The sage green fleece can only be worn over the ABU coat/top. It is not authorized to be worn solely over a t-shirt, thermal underwear, etc. When worn as an outer garment, it will:

A. Have a Velcro ABU print last name tape with dark blue block lettering centered between the zipper and sleeve seam on the wearer’s right chest.

C. Have a Velcro ABU print U.S. Air Force tape with dark blue, block lettering adjacent to the last name tape and centered between the zipper and sleeve seam on the wearer’s left chest.



D. Remain zipped no lower than halfway between the nametape and the collar.
