New Standard Combat Uniform for the CF info
Previously, Air Force and Navy personnelle wore the Olive drab combats as their standard field dress, but those uniforms have been completely phased out by the CF.
Even new recuits and Officer Cadets, who were given the Olive drab, are now given CADPAT's to wear as the standard Combat Dress.
I know that this info has been out for a while, but I'm just curious as to what other people (Canadian or otherwise) have to say about the uniform change.

Well...I've been wearing them here at CMR for about a month now, and as long as you roll the sleeves up, you don't feel much as far as heat goes.
When it comes to fading...yeah, the 1st Gen. CADPAT's do fade a lot, but the new ones that the AF and Navy get seem to be doing pretty good.
Oh yeah....Gunner. Do you mean the GORE-TEX boots?

Hmm....yeah, I think those would be the GORE-TEX (or GOR-TEX, I'm not sure on how it's spelled) boots. They're not exactly the prettiest things that I've seen, but they are comfy as hell. Mind you...after wearing normal combat boots for over a month straight, ANYTHING feels comfy.
