Combat Uniform

This is the standard field or combat uniform that we wear during an event. It consists of the basic wool uniform, without tie, along with a field jacket or optional wool overcoat, leggings, helmet and web gear.

In the European theater of operations (ETO), the basic wool uniform saw the most use and had the greatest functionality, being able to keep the soldier warm in the winter with its insulation, and relatively cool and breathable in Northern European summer weather.
