    Interestingly the Fleece jacket is being wadied as it is not flame retardant and can't be worn below decks to be replaced by.....The wool Jumper.Thats going to be comfortable when worn over a shirt with a bloody big UBACS pocket on one sleeve.
    Jesus for a service that want's to be soooooooooooooooo different to the Army they even copied our stupid shirt design.
    Won't be a similar issue to Army. Some of that issue is specific to the job they do.

    DPM Trousers
    DPM Shirt
    Plain grey T-shirt (similar to dark green Army issued one)
    DPM Smock (subtle differences to Army issue)
    Navy foul weather gear remaining
    Navy jumper remaining (unfortunately...)
    Navy ship baseball cap remaining
    Black beret remaining

    No news on Barrack jacket remaining or being DPM'd

    Elmer Fudd hat,Boonie hat etc wont be manufactured.

    Hopefully the trial will iron what works/doesn't work.

    What about rain gear (as opposed to FWG) for ranges etc?

    Is there any chance the trials could result in pockets (even non-functional ones) being restored to the front of the shirt?

    A black jumper might look better than a navy one. Same with Baseball cap and FWG.

    Just for firing a range once a year, i doubt it.

    Would imagine greens will still be used for that as cost is minimal.

    Navy FWG will remain.

    RAN still use the Navy FWG.

    Boonie Hat,Elmer Fudd and the waterproof gloves were all supposed to be produced in NSV-DPM.
    What happened? The bean counters get in the way?

    Only on grounds of taste!
    'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

    It doesn't look that bad. But when do they wear it, just on ships or all the time?

    Any time they aren't wearing number 1s, I assume, same as the Army. It looks good, in my opinion. Looks more miltary than the navies, and with the same layering system, will make live aboard ship a bit easier to bear.

    I wonder is there any merit in a Naval Issue beanie? Customs have a nice fleece one, handy for wearing under hard hats etc...
