So what type of smock do you prefer?

#2
CS95. Big pockets, nice and long, ripstop. Everything you want. SAS smocks look good, but don't survive an encounter with a barbed wire fence, or indeed your wrists, given that those I've owned have always frayed at the slighest use.

Never sacrifice style for practicality, SAS smock all the way in the field. Para smock (but only if your in the brotherhood :wink: ) in barracks.

I have an attic full of smocks (SAS, Windproof, Para etc) - however, since CS 95 was issued - that is all I have ever worn. It meets the needs and the windproof is always in the bergan for those cold mornings on operations/exercise when an extra layer is needed. :D

the 95 smock good for me tougher than the sas windproof never needed
a hood and those zip pockets can hold loads .Had to buy my first one
but found a £20pound note in it so that was nice :)

It's the one bibo_boy wears on Tuesdays in front of his full-length mirror complete with RM Cdo flashes .

The others, with suitable badges, are worn on different days of the week.

That's why he has so many favourites.

But what and why do you use.......? :roll:

and s'cuse my ignorance but what's a marine smock look like??
Arctic windproof smock. Looks like 'SAS' one but has front and back rank slides and wire in the hood to allow the 'snorkal parka' look.
