I'm not sure how covert your uniform is though when you have G.I. Joe printed all over it as part of the camouflage design.

Other male costumes include body armour suits as worn by G.I. Joe Agents Duke, Ripcord and Heavy Duty in the movie. This particular outfit looks quite large so I wonder if it's the one worn by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaye as the muscular 'Heavy Duty'.
