Reply to "Modifying the '95 Pattern Windproof Smock"

Yeah as an added bonus, you can keep a bunch of shit on you, versus the belt kit or ruck.  The shoulder pockets are especially good for this purpose.   Small E&E and medical kits can be carried here.  The pass-through chest pockets are nice for maps, gloves, watch cap, etc.  Front chest pockets are the office: notebook, pen, and flashlight on one side; compass, pace beads on the other.  Waist pockets are good for over-mitts, windshirt or other thin layers, or even some snacks.

The shock cord cuffs are inspired by the old sewn in elastic cuffs.

I don't have the old "poacher" pockets on this smock, but also good for additional clothing layers that may be coming on n off as you travel.
