    What is being worn here?
    134

    It looks like we are back to wearing a Parade combat jacket. As well as having a Parade smock...New boots look good though.

    Open to correction, but that is the new smock, worn with the hoods removed.
    What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

    Yup. Removable hood is a disaster. Either leave it stitched on or wear the smock with it removed as in the picture.At least that looks some bit decent. I have seen some people trying to wear the smock with hoods hanging down their backs and other people wearing them with the hood front closure tied around their throats.

    Both look gank.

    New smock will work better with the new body armour system(no hood to get snagged on the Body armour collar) and the sleeve pockets ar a plus. Big flaw is the lack of velcro sleeve panels for interchangable Badging both at home and overseas.
