A must for all cadets!

I suppose you'll be wanting the modified CS95 to go with it?

Great jackets btw, they keep you warm, they keep you cool, they hide you in the park, the have pockets to keep "stuff" in and the mesh pockets let soup out. All clever stuff really.

Excellent bit of kit, SASS sell them cheaper, only £5 less, but that's a pint & a bit!

Modified CS95 what?

So, good bit of kit and worth the money then? Okay they perform well in soup conditions but what about custard? :x

PS: I'm not a cadet, I'm an adult instructor, which means of course I have no excuse for asking bone questions

They're shyte. Heavy and sweaty with all the extra linings/mesh, with zips hanging off everywhere. Wired hood is pointless (unless you're scott of the antarctic) and the fleece pockets serve little purpose as they're covered by your belt kit. Original windproofs are miles better. Get a lass to sew some extra bits on if you need.

Don't waste your money.

I suspected as much. I handled one in a surplus shop, and wasnt sure it would be as comfortable as a windproof. Anyway, I'll be issued a Mk2 CS95 soon anyway, which in all honesty, is the only issue jacket thats ever been any good.

The modified CS95 has the mesh to pocket bases, double thickness to elbows and knees plus the compass pocket on the left breast pocket as per smock.

They are actually a decent enough smock although a bit warm for running about in.

What, the Artic desert smock....speaking of which, I'll just get mine.

I've also got one of the woodland Mk2 modified smocks. Good bit of kit, I especially like the hand warming DS pockets and my Alternative comms fits into the compass pocket.
