Is this an example of the "Feminization" of the Canadian Army?   ;D  I notice that they managed to scrounge up some Female Mannequins for the displays......just doesn't look quite right.

Ooooooh... new snow shoes... no more futile rolling around on the ground because the back end of the snow shoe is firmly embedded in the ground.

Its a good thing our defence money is being spent on adding grey splotches to the whites and ensuring our ankles are now cadpat incase you are stepping on the enemy... :P :P :P

Yes the most important thing here in my opinon is the snow shoes and I hope they disperese those asap.  They rest of the stuff I doubt we'll see before we are retired.

Not trying to be negitive(I think CADPAT is a good thing)but does anyone else think that the CF is going a little overboard on the CADPAT kick?

I BELIEVE The "tails" on our snowshoes keep the ends from 'flicking' up as we lift our feet.. you will see (As I have, as the whole family uses the sport type snowshoes) that the rear of the snowshoes tend to snap up and throw snow at your back.. the only thing that might prevent this with those new shoes is that the bindings look to be the same as the ones the CF currently has.. soft and not as "rubbery" as the sport snowshoes and bindings.  We'll see.. I can't wait!

As long as a cam pattern exists, doesn't hurt to make all field equipment in that pattern... a slight elevation in cost as a trade off for a moderate elevation in concealment.

Funny, the arctic cam looks kind of plain.  It is nothing different then wearing the pure white covers for a few days and getting them dirty.

Is their any plans to make the Gortex Parka and Bib in this pattern?

Why would they do that? The whites are inteded to be worn over the cold weather gear anyway. Not much sense in making a uniform thats intended to be worn during normal working conditions out of crisp, mostly white fabric...

Arctic CADPAT are reversible, one side is totally white, and the other side is the grey and white pattern. They provide IR protection in the Arctic and better camouflage when you are not in total white environment.

All this equipment is in consideration, but the color of the CADPAT is hard to produce with different fabric, but the technology upgrade will be able to produce them in large quantities in the next few year.

When I was in 3 VP, my coy did a final trial on the CADPAT.  We were all issued a CADPAT coolmax t-shirt.  Looks good, put really holds the odour in.  After two days on a light infantryman, it reeked.

with the ski's, they are atleast fish scale ski's. they have what lookslike fish scales, so wen you push backwards on them they grip the snow, but will glide on the scow forward.

i saw ski's and half expected then to need to be waxed

I can't quite make out what they are made of, but I'd like to see the winter camo made like the Russian stuff. I have a set and they very nice.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that it looks like the old winter whites we had which are just a thin material that you wear over your parka and it doesn't appear to have any insulation factor.

There is a picture of the TW, AR, and Arctic CADPAT clothing at Fort York.  In that picture all 3 soldiers have Tac Vests in the actual Cadpat they were wearing, i.e. a AR TV and an Arctic TV.

I wonder if the arctic TV is just small whites pieces that somehow fit onto the TW TV sort of like how our whites go over our normal clothing.
