            If you're in the PDF i'd say go to your CQ or and he'll switch them.

            If you're in the RDF then it's the luck of the draw. 9 times out of 10 you're gonna get medium or large.

            size small is a rarity for any item of clothing in the reserve.

            I've only ever even seen small size wet gear twice after 3 years of being in the RDF.

            Which is annoying because i'd be a small or extra small in some cases

                Best to contact anyone else who got it issued and do a swap; DPM waterproofs usually come from central stores so you're more than likely stuck with the ones issued to the unit.

                  DPM wetgear has been on issue in the reserves for a few years now, but not personal issue, only for exercises.

                  It should be issued alongside your webbing, bergen, basha and other kit when your gonna do a 24hrs or any other large exercise, and handed back afterward.

                  They are taken from a pool, the same as the webbing, bergen and helmets. So don't expect a set in your size. Most are medium and large.

                    Why wasn't the decision made to personally issue wetgear to the RDF? Is it just a money issue? Having it issued on an ad hoc basis is just ridiculous and counter productive IMO.

                          S and S, there was (as Bravo will back me up) a motion submitted by RDFRA
                          a couple of years ago to issue on a personal basis, a set of wetgear to all
                          Reservists with in excess of 3 years service

                          Idea being that "one year wonders" would just not fcuk off with a relatively
                          expensive piece of kit such as wetgear

                          This is the first time I' ve heard anything back on why this RDFRA motion
                          never went any further, as the last D Res who held full Colonel rank seemed
                          to be receptive to the idea

                            If it was issued then why not just go back to stores and ask for a smaller size, If it wasn't issued then you shouldn't be really advertising the fact you picked a set up from a friend! Also if memory serves me correct, isn't it an offence under military law to be swapping gear with another person?

                            When did FCA start issuing wet-gear?

                              So the best bet would be to have a discreet chat with the Cq and see if he can swap them for me? Are they issued as a suit or as seperate smock and trousers similar to a reg uniform?
