issue smock / Field Jacket

#1
I could not help notice that the latest batch of new recruits in my TA Sqn have been issued a new version of the Windproof smock (well 2 each actually!). 8O

I asked the QM rep if he had been out in the sun too much recently :? , apparently not!!

Has the field Jacket been binned :?:
 
#2
Yes, sort of.

The ripstop version has been replaced with one made from tight weave cotton, and field jacket with attached hood is also on issue.

For windproofs there is yet another version with attached hood , mesh lining and fleece lined hand warmer pockets.

All three made from the same material.

No - if pressed correctly a smart item of kit - learn to switch your iron on!

104 chest! I didn't know people could breath in that far. :D

May be lost here, does this mean the army's cbt 95 jacket has been replaced?

And if so, it has a hood on it? Is the DPM any different?

If I had any feelings they'd be hurt....

104, I likes 'em baggy.

That's my excuse anyway.

the modded one was of limited issue I believe, if you're sad like me you can buy them from the likes of SASS, or most places that advertise in the back of Soldier Magazine.
 
#18
Is that you agreeing that I'm sad or the jacket is a limited issue/production?
 
#19
The jacket. Its not sad to buy some of your own kit. Fortunately these days we (CFAVs) don't have to buy everything, just nearly everything. I'm glad I can at least get a decent smock and a couple of prs of trousers through the system. 15 years ago I got a beret, brassard, OG shirt and rank chevrons issued and everything else I had to buy!
