New CFS Uniforms
« on: March 28, 2014, 10:02:47 PM »
So our cadets received the new proper yellows (or should I say oranges hehe) a couple months ago that CFS designed and asked for (Not that press stud carp that opens itself up while on the fire ground and massive neck flaps that exposes your neck to easily get burnt) but of course cadets don't go on fire grounds so we haven't been able to put it to the test.

Has anyone received the brand new stuff and is it living up to what we asked for? e.g. fits crew leader folders in jacket pockets easy? Haven't damaged the centre jacket zip yet as it does appear to be smaller then what was on the previous gear? What are your thoughts?

It's alright...
lots of pockets, but to me the material and cut feels heavier.
not as comfy as my old nomex, but meh...

zips on all sets delivered to our station seem to be crap quality and seize a lot.
water bottle pockets are useful, but the radio pocket doesnt really have the right angle on it, so the antennae hits you in the face.
