Kit and equipment experts, apologies if this has been covered elsewhere (if so please provide link as I can't find it). I recall there being shorts (desert combat stylee) issued at some point in the last few years. My question is are these still issued (presumably in MTP) and if so under what circumstances are they authorised for wear? Presumably something to do with hot climates, worn with PCS jackets??? with boots??? Second question (also hot weather related), is the hot weather version of the PCS shirt/jacket any thinner/lighter or is it the same, just dipped in perripel as I am lead to understand?
