Well the take away is that the RCN will look better than the USN :)  in their new uniforms.

The boots are an interesting change.



I like the sea boots.  They'll go on fast once broken in.

Makes sense for quick don, but I wonder how the elastic would work in a fire situation.  Won't it just melt onto the sock/foot?

Neither are wearing a SWO pin.

The LCdr (in khaki) is Supply Corps and is wearing the Naval Aviation Supply Corps badge (top) and the Surface Warfare Supply Corps badge (bottom)
The PO1 (in blue) is wearing Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist badge (or maybe the Information Dominance Warfare Specialist badge, image not clear) and the Enlisted Expeditionary Warfare Specialist badge (bottom)

I'm surprised they're wearing metal pins at all on operational dress.

If navy's didn't have a fetish towards "Walking out dress", what is wrong with this outfit? (save the doughboy helmet and gaiters)

I'm cool with it as long as they give me a BAR to walk out with.

Those American Navy Uniforms are terrible looking. 

Also, only the military could make two otherwise very attractive women look terrible  ;D

Those US Navy uniforms are hideous.

I expect that is the result of a procurement system focused on the lowest-price bidder.

I'm shocked the Cox'n isn't having fits that the ship's crest is being covered up by the sleeve roll  :stirpot:

I'd be happy if the moved the ships crest back to its original spot (above the name tag) and took off the Navy/Marine tag.
When I saw the uniform at CANSEC I was impressed at the amount of thought gone into it. It actually looks pretty good and is fits well with what you wear NCD's for when you are at sea. They can stay there as far as I'm concerned, no need to wear them in air conditioned offices ashore!

I have heard many different times for these getting rolled out. Has anyone heard anything recently?

Picked up the new style floater jacket today, seems heavier than the old one and it came with a fleece liner to wear underneath. The liner can act as your second layer.

It wouldn’t be the OS’ fault that some committee somewhere kept on adding bumpf to the sleeve that it would make neat rolling darned near impossible.   The alternative is a roll-up that stops mid-forearm, and last I checked, only one person* in the CF gets away with that...

Ummm...no.  I saw quite a few Air Force personnel  (in Trenton) with the mid-forearm sleeve roll....

Becaue being asked if you're mall security, or a buss driver is better than being easily identifable as RCN..

Maybe the idea of a blank uniform should be relegated to the wastes of history, as in reality is was a minor road bump in uniform history.

The anchor beside the name wasn't enough? Are we wearing operational uniforms for civilians to know who we are, or are we wearing them as operational attire designed not for fashion but function?

I'm actually surprised that the RCN didn't try to get the rank velcro changed from Canada to RCN. There definitely needs to be more flair on there. I don't even see the space for a SSI so that people can immediately discount ideas based on the colour of a random patch. Or maybe I'm just jealous I haven't qualified for my golden Tent Service Insignia (TSI) for consecutive days living in the field doing my job...
