    Canadian heavyweight combat suit

    I know camo is king here but hopefully a little olive drab is ok once in a whiles ? Very Happy

    Here's a 1997 dated jacket (sadly no liner .... ) size 7050, it is a biggie. In very good condition.





    And a much older pair of trousers .... much darker.







    Personally I think that in the field, in temperate climates, with a bit of mud, water and sweat, these are as good as any camouflage.

    I have to wear one of those jackets in the field with my corps quite often, they are either too warm or to hot to ever be comfortable. But I agree OD actueally works quite well.

    They're STILL on issue Tyler ? I thought green IECS was still about but not the old quarpel stuff. Bet you haven't seen the trousers in a while though, eh ?

    If you ever come across a compatible liner for the jacket ........ do you take paypal ? Laughing

    Hahaha sadly yes, some CIC officers and a few very unlucky reservists get theese jackets still, however I think the pants have died off Laughing But I am a Royal Canadian Sea Cadet (However I do more training with the Air and Army folk then with my own corps) And I hence get issued (and sometimes have to buy) OD clothing. We sadly cannot wear CADPAT yet but we can use CADPAT gear. So when in the field with my Cadets I have to wear OD combats with my 82Pat webbing, a CADPAT boonie (my CO lets me wear that but he isnt supposed to) and a CADPAT small pack. (When I go in the field on my own I wear the above only with CADPAT combats) As for a compatible liner I will keep my eyes open. If I can find one I will be happy to work out a trade or something.
