The two prototypes feature removable sleeves, a feature that was later abandoned on the finished production version. Field testing of the MCCUU began in early 2001 and was officially announced to the public in June 2001. Early prototypes had featured removable sleeves, but that design feature was later abandoned. The early prototypes of the MCCUU were designed by Propper International and American Power Source. The collar of an MCCUU, being worn by a U. The rear of an MCCUU, being worn by a U.

The MCCUU is intended for wear in the field or for working parties, but has become the typical working uniform for all deployed and most garrison U. Unlike the previous BDU, the MCCUU was designed to be used with body armor, which previously restricted access to front pockets. To further distinguish the uniform, upon close examination, the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor can be found within the pattern. The Marine Corps Eagle, Globe, and Anchor is embroidered on both the boonie and utility covers.
