As a first tour im doing an ftrs in bosnia just wondered if anyone had any suggestions for any non issue cold weather kit that would be better than anything i would get issued
Having read other threads about female suing MOD after not getting issued correct size boots surprised yr not just going for the frostbite early retirement option. Glad to see a few squaddies still willing to take responsibility for themselves..........tank_6275 said:also any suggestions for a cold weather pair of boots
Could get another pair of trousers add zips to the legs voila 2 layers and easy on without boots off.Panoptes said:Does anyone have any experience of the Tiso brand, or any other brand of microfleece, are they any good or just a waste of money/material?
Also what about keeping the legs warm, any clothing that can be worn with confidence of warmth and mobility, but not getting heat exhastion, from bombing about the Mournes (or other UK eqivilant mountain range).
Keeping in mind that its not overly possible to remove and put on long Johns, over boots. And its a big waste of time tkaing you boots on and off everytime you stop for a few hours especially in tactical conditions.
Cheers, not adverse to paying the money, its more the bulk since I'm not mech.tank_6275 said:well ive got a highlander one and now not sure if it'll do the job so i recon you're better going for something upper cost range therefore less need to get another if u require to go somewhere colder
