What's CF's Regulation of usage of kit and equipment while off duty? I mean, I'm sure it's not against the rules to wear combat t-shirts or combat boxers since they're not blatently obvious as something military issue, but what about combat pants/shirts? I'm just wondering if it'll be ok to wear some crappy, worn down combat pants and shirt to go paintballing. Neither have Canadian flags, epeuletts, maple leafs, or anything else identifying them as CF (army btw) issue, except for the fact that they look like Canadian army issue. Whatchya think?


Hopefully a future Sig Op...
The Plan:
-Reservist throughout University until I get my Engineering degree;
-Take QL3's, QL5's and perhaps even JLC's in the mean time and at least get up to Corporal
-Upon Completion of University, try to go on a Peace Keeping tour ASAP
-Come home, see what's next...

Well seeing how you can but them at an Army Surplus store anyways, I think its ok to wear them paintballing and stuff as long as they dont have any epaulets, ect. on it.

The basic rule is that you can wear anything bought. Anything issued to you can not be worn for civvy purposes.

i've found that CF combats are the BEST to use for paintballing.
much better than the ammerican camo because the puffyness of the CF combats make the paintballs not break as easily and doesnt give you a definate shape when ur sitting in the middle of the woods in some godforsaken thornbush

personally i use my combats a lot for paintballing and camping just because of their comfort and easy clean up.

Well, I use my combat t-shirts as undershirts, or if it get's too hot out, just as a regular shirt, or to just work/play. I sleep in the issued boxers, but people say the boxers are pieces of crap. Plus, from time to time, i wear my belt as it's one of the few ones i own that fit me. I was contemplating going for a run one day and wearing my webbing with a few 5 pound weights in the asspack, but decided against it... would look a bit strange running around with one of those.

Disturbance, I have absolutely no idea about the rules as far as doing a little extra training with your ruck on, but I can't imagine for a second that anyone could complain. So long as you're not out there running around the streets in uniform, who's going to know anyways? In my humble opinion you're doing yourself a huge big favour by breaking your kit in a bit before you go on course. It's definitely a good thing not just to knock some of the newness out of it, but also to get used to how it feels moving with it on. That said, I really can't advise running with your boots on. By all means hike in them, but the chance of screwing up your feet or legs by running much over a couple hundred meters in boots just doesn't make it worth your while. One month before course is not the time to overstress a tendon or what have you.
