Are these still issued ?
Is there a CadPat Arid version ?

Just don't get arrested for using illegal Canadian issued kit Tyler ! Hate to see you behind bars as, judging by your other posts to my threads, we'd get along most cordially
You might think that they would be readily available but you would be mistaken. With a few minor exceptions, all current issue Cadpat items are destroyed and are not released as surplus. I worked for a short time in the section that was responsible for demilitarizing controlled items and we threw everything Cadpat into an industrial shredder. As a collector it was heart breaking to destroy unissued arid Cadpat items on more then one occasion.Bury_Dave wrote:I presume these are widely available on the surplus market as they are issued one per person i imagine ?
