When lost one simply buys a new map and starts over, as the old map might be wrong.
  Apparently in-action is in fact a course of action.

See PM.

I know that MJP's made it beyond 1 VP and beyond 1 CMBG.

Yea We got a response from NDHQ.  It pretty much said they are aware of the problem and had scheduled trials for modular gear.

If any one wants to read it.

OK disregard my post above.  Managed to get on the DWAN last night long enough to track down the handbook for online reporting.

So, the CAF has decided to modify all bivy bags by cutting them open and putting a zipper in place.
I guess somebody complained that the current bags work for keeping water out.

But it makes the bag heavier and noisier as well. Isn't that important to you either?  ;D

Too many good idea fairies. I'm somewhat glad I'm near CRA but at the same time I fear for the young soldiers coming up. So much talent will be wasted.

Or somebody wasn't slender enough to slide into one and bring their arms in over their head. We do have the FORCE test now, time to modify the kit for those unable to lift their arms above their head.

Does that mean armless combat tunics now? for greater range of movement?  >:D

I wonder if it is the kit that is limiting their motion, or their physique?  Some people can't lift their arms above their head without any cloths to restrict their motion.  However, the numbers of 'house apes' in the service are low, so it shouldn't be a major concern.  >:D

The original bivvy bag presented a suffocation hazard to our younger members. It was determined that a warning label would diminish the visual effect of the CADPAT material. The preferred option was to recall the item and enhance it with an "egress, zip fastener, tactical".

I really hope its rumint, but we got told the new bivy bag was because an individual couldn't get out of it when their tent caught fire...

I have seen it, but took no pictures.  You can look it up in CGCS under the following NSNs:
    8465-20-007-2648
    8465-20-007-2649
    8465-20-007-2650
    8465-20-007-2651

The PM or LCMM (I am a few relays along in the telephone game) is pointing the finger back at the field force for this.  Apparently it was an infantry focus group that made the recomendation.
