(KSL News) For the first time since the early 1980s the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) have new and updated uniforms.
The new "centennial uniform," released this month, is part of many planned activities to celebrate the coming 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.
A committee of Scouts and their parents helped the BSA with the new look and feel of the uniform.
The uniform is now available in cotton-rich canvas or in Supplex nylon, a highly durable, moisture-control fabric that wicks away moisture, dries quickly and offers SPF 50+ sun protection.
With the new design comes a new uniform cap, bellows pockets, shoulder loops, an updated uniform belt and convertible pants.
The uniform colors are toned-down khaki and forest green and feature multifunction pockets, zippers, and gadget loops suitable for today's outdoor explorer.
There have been five major revisions and some minor tweaks of the uniform since BSA began in 1910.
