Battlestar Galactica Battle Dress Uniform

All of this has happened beforeĀ and will happen again.

This outfit is based on the Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) of various crew of the Battlestar Galactica worn during the re-imagined series.

Originally beginning as a US military BDU field jacket and combat “pants” it has been modified with polypropylene webbing, plastic buckles coloured gold with rub n’ buff and faux suedette fabric arm patches. Extra bits for closer screen accuracy include a custom embroidered “Battlestar Wiki” patch, Senior Chief petty officer rank pins and copper hexagonal dog tags.
