That’s “Tier 2” protection for blast injuries. It includes a thick, flexible pad wrapped in fabric that folds in between the legs over vital areas. The new ones issued have Marine pattern camouflage, but many of the infantrymen with 1/8 are wearing British camouflage because the Brits fielded the gear first and the Corps wanted to get the item in the field as quickly as possible.
