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.
