Warm kit to wear on OP

Put a lit hexi block in each pocket. That'll warm you up.

Or would you like a nice flowery quilt, princess?
OPs, or anything else for that matter, always get bumped at dawn.

Two hours before that, shift your OP. Then display a smug grin as the DS direct an attack on your vacated position.
Op work??? Look, Schools release potential targets around 1500-1515. So you wont be around too long anyway. You can also put the heater on in the car if it gets really cold. And besides if your CTR is done correctly you will be soon doing some bodily warmth with little Lauren or Ryan (which ever flicks your switch!).
In case you get bumped again

Don't be bloody stupid!
The lad asked a genuine question!

At least theres a green one which is more camouflage and gives your arms free to fight back with his ninja stars (or whatever bollocks he intends to fight back with).

I was looking at buying a buffalo 6/mountain shirt or montane extreme smock for op work but worried about sweating my nuts off when I'm bumped if I'm wearing it. What's the best one?

From experience, it doesn't matter what you've got on in the OP. You will still be too cold and if you get bumped, you will always sweat your tits off for the next 30 minutes...

Wear issue Snugpak Softie and some nice merino wool underthings. Get Bumped. Run like **** to ERV. Remove Softie in pairs one at a time. Crack on.
