I have always supported the toque as an appropriate piece of operational headgear, but I have always maintained it has no place on any kind of dress uniform.  In other words, it's fine on the bridge of a ship at sea, but when walking in downtown Ottawa in service dress, the Yukon hat is the obvious winner.  I also like soft cuddly furry things.
That's pretty much why I ordered mine.

Here's a preview:

Got mine a few weeks ago. Apparently there is a big backlog on the hats, some people won't receive them until next year.

Wow, I already have mine (got it a few years ago from some Hutterite friends for regular winter use) , and I haven't even joined yet. I am looking forward to being able to use it when I sign up!

If it's not CF issue, you won't be able to wear it.

Well, I've had mine for years.  I ordered it from William Scully when I saw that it had been added to the dress regs.  It's great!

I've just received mine today via courier. It's pretty great, if I do say so.

Got mine too and have to send it back.  It's too big.  It doesn't fit.  :(

Edit to change wording due to post below.   ;)

It is becoming increasingly difficult to deal with the angel and the devil battling on my shoulders.  There are just so many opportunities to say entirely inappropriate things on this thread about soft furry things... ;D

I just had a vision of a giant fur cap with two little legs sticking out of the bottom!

With beards like that, they're obviously sailors in NDHQ who haven't been aboard a ship for years... since you're no longer allowed beards on board (or so I've been told).
