    CS95 Trial Garment- Jacket.

    Post by Easy Gee on Mon Jan 02, 2012 8:26 am

    Hi Guys.

    Here’s a CS95 Trial Jacket from my collection, I purchased this one from my local surplus store, and only paid £ 5.00 for it. The sleeves have been shortened (to aid with rolling the sleeves up, I suspect???) Apart from that modification it’s all complete.

    Enjoy, and thanks for looking Wink

    We trialed these in Norway in 1993/94 we had 3 sets originally, what was strange was that the trousers had the canadian style buttons but the shirts didn't, the smock was rip stop and without a hood so we were issued a hood separately which we had sewn on by the tailoress, ( we needed hoods for crossing a avalanche areas. I hated the smocks so continued to wear my windproof type which I preferred. We had goretex jacket and trousers too which were brighlty coloured and suppose to be worn underneath our main combat clothing as they didnt have pockets. After the trial we kept everything but reverted to normal dress, we had to fill out a report about the trial too a massive booklet. Most people didnt like the kit for the arctic, a lot of it was shelved or redesigned before CS95 was issued.

    Great info! Thanks. I've seen comparatively little information about the details of the trials leading up to Soldier 95 and the changes that happened after. There's a lot of mystery about this to me Very Happy

    No worries fella, annoying part is I gave away to a Cadet in the street were I use to live the last pair of trousers and shirt I had, that was about 2 years ago, I do know that you can regularly find trial pieces at the War and Peace show every July. I love that show and go every year..... Very Happy

    My trials trousers arrived today, they were £3 and the shirt was £1...jammy git much? Very Happy They were taken on my phone, so excuse the quality.


    As grim reaper said, the trousers have Canadian type buttons, which is strange because the P94 and Early CS95 Jackets didn't have them and neither did the early CS95 Trousers, the waistband also have the older type buttons aswell.

    Shirt and Trousers:




    Canadian buttons on the map pocket:


    Older type buttons (same as shirt) on the waistband:
