Now, that doesn't seem too unreasonable, does it?
But wait! Let's compare it to the offerings of other companies.
Propper, which costs ranging from $24.99 for 60/40% cotton/polyester BDU's to $29.99, and $29.99 for 100% cotton BDU's to $44.99 for 65/35% polyester/cotton A-TACS BDU's;
TruSpec, which costs $35.95 for the most part (including 100% cotton), $67.95 for MultiCam, and $53.95 for All Terrain Tiger Stripe.
Propper's Army Combat Uniforms, with 65/35% polyester/cotton and 50/50 NYCO/cotton MultiCam or A-TACS costing either $39.99, $54.99, $64.99 $69.99, or $79.99 a piece;
TruSpec's Tactical Response Uniforms (which appear to be copies of, or at least very similar to, ACU's), in which the MultiCam costs $84.95 a piece (except for the 1/4 Zip combat shirt, which the MultiCam costs $81.95 each);
Even TruSpec's TRU Xtreme line costs $100.95 a piece, which is still a better deal than what Rothco offers (TRU Xtreme pants are even cheaper than Rothco's MultiCam pants);
TacticalGearTrade.com offers individual camouflage pants and blouses that cost under $51 a piece (though warning, the quality, especially the durability, may not be very good, considering this is mostly sold to airsofters);
Airsoft-Club.com sells uniforms sell for even less;
UR-Tactical is also selling Integrated Battle Shirts for $95 a piece, and their Advanced Response Pants cost $118 a piece, which is less than what Rothco sells their BDU pants for;
If you can, avoid clothing that contains polyester, since it can melt to one's skin if exposed to enough heat (such as in the cases of flames, explosions, etc).
Rothco also sells a polyester plate carrier for $89.99 a piece, and a MultiCam plate carrier made out of 1000 denier Cordua nylon for $172.99 a piece;
But other companies, such as AR500 Armor Plate Carriers, Spartan Armor Systems, and Infidel Body Armor offer plate carriers for comparable or even lower prices, and at higher quality at that;
I feel like that Rothco mainly makes money on the wholesale market and selling generic products.
I cannot belive that Crye Precision allows Rothco to use their Multicam pattern on Rothco's overpriced products that have questionable quality.
Rothco, if you want positive reviews, then do one or more of the following to make deals better:
- Increase the quality of the products that you sell.
- Reduce the price to under that of your competitors.
- Sell bulk for very low prices.

Have you wondered why so many price tags end in .99? Well, this video explains that;
