United States Air Force Major subdued cloth rank insignia are worn on several utility uniforms, including the Airman Battle Uniform (ABU), the APECS (outdoor use only), and the Sage Green Fleece uniform (i.e., the Sage Green Fleece worn over the ABU blouse). While the insignia for all three employ the same design—a dark gold oak leaf on a solid, sage-green background—they each have a distinct attachment method based on the uniform on which they are worn.

As the name implies, our Sew-on insignia are sewn directly onto the collars of the Airman Battle Uniform.

The Gortex Loop type insignia is an open-ended “tube” that fits snugly over the rank tab located on the front of the APECS parka.

The Velcro fastener on the back of the Fleece Rank with Hook Closure insignia allows it to be quickly attached and removed from the Sage Green Fleecea handy feature since insignia and other accouterments are not necessary when the Fleece is worn as a liner with the ABU.
