Seen on Reddit. Replacement for PCS uniform, forgive me if this has already been posted somewhere else on the site or if this ended up in the wrong forum.

It looks like a big of shite.
Many people had an input of what they thought of it and I didn't see one person on my unit who thought it looked up to the job or even professional.
I realise that the present shirt or jacket(call it what you like ) can be warm but to redesign it to that is beyond what is required.
In warm weather allow the shirt/jacket to be worn untucked or even taken off.
I haven't been on a ship that has allowed that yet.
I wonder about the protection offered for fire fighting duties as the old shirts allowed the collar to be worn up and velcro'd shut. Does this allow that?

Scran bag.
Sleeves at half mast??? WTF???

SF sleeves. Just the two tours of Afghan it would appear. My Mrs had to tell me, she’s done two tours. She has her sleeves rolled up half mast. She says it’s because of all the SF she was working with in KAF.

I say it’s because she’s a lazy loggie*.

SUTH allowed jackets to be relaxed unless SSEP (attack party). PBI gold doesn’t require that much underneath, so not an issue. They hadn’t even trialed the FF protection at Phoenix before they started the trial on those units EoS. So not sure why they will bring to the party.

They also allowed us to wear softies (not the erection) thought the ship when out of sight of land. We mostly were in the Barents to be fair (it’s freezing). Mostly due to the CO being a small ship driver and not ****. I actually enjoyed the relaxed nature.

I left my feedback when it was required for thoughts on the new PCS and was most unsurprised when the feedback was published that they ACK our comments and ignored them. Quel suprise.

That's how I always wore my 8's sleeves, not because of SF, because I was a sundodging scran bag :D

Same here at sea - quick to roll down if need be, doesn't get in the way when not at Emergency Stations. I think the SF copied us because everyone's gotta have someone to look up to. ;)
