    Tricolour is hard to subdue. Once it is subdued, it just looks like every other subdued tricolour. Yeah, you have the "IRELAND" part but why bother having the tricolour then?

    And it is not like they actually need it to be subdued

    There was an opportunity to reintroduce a baseball cap, instead of continuing the ambiguity around the NS beret, some of whom carry the correct ns cap badge, some which carry the larger army one, some officers ones which have a smaller embroidered cap badge than others.
    Or, worst case scenario, is there a naval version bush hat?
    Also, sleeves up or down?
    Only one size FF cap badge nowadays for NS O/SEA, A/SEA, LS ranks in the NS - the larger one usually seen on Army berets
    The smaller one has been discontinued

    Lets look at this further.The US navy recently got rid of their proprietary blue/black camo pattern ,derisively referred to as "Blue Bottles" in favour of a green type camo pattern.
    The Royal Navy introduced Naval PCS. A navy blue version of the British Army Personal Clothing System Jacket/Shirt and trousers.
    Those are just two examples of International best practice.Unless you count the Aussies Naval DPM with Reflective stripes on each sleeve(Why bother having Camo in the first place)

    No.There is no tactical or operational reason this abomination of a uniform should exist.It is merely so the NS can stand out from other services who wear navy blue uniforms.
    Now.To be fair the NS uniform badly needed updating but for my tuppence worth this is the route they should go.
    1/ Flame resistant (The new naval DPM has this so strike 1 )
    2/ Better pocket layout(Nope.They just copied the S***ty pocket layout on the shirt that the minority in the DF have foisted upon the majority of the DF.Thanks ladies)
    3/ Solid colour. (Like, I dunno,Navy???)

    Of course the NS hierarchy who dreamt this up have forgotten one massive detail. To issue out a totally new uniform at this time is going to be a Mahooooosive own goal in terms of PR.The NS can't afford to build proper accomodation alongside for it sailors or to pay them enough to stick around to crew the ships that haven't been laid up for "maintenance" but yet they have money to waste on uniforms that are not needed?

    Yup.Priorities straight there.
    The problems you mention are not of the making of the Naval Service. It is a DoD problem. Look around your own location.
    The fact that the NS chose to make public their shortcomings may in the long term be of benefit to the entire DF. If nothing else it got the general public on its side.

    Surely there must be some loss of economy in numbers of DPM uniforms procured here.

    AFAIK headress wil be Berets.
    And so we know what to call it the proper title(No NOT slugcam) is Naval Service Variant Disruptive Pattern Material or NSV-DPM.
