Field Uniforms

CATO 55-04 Air Cadet Dress Regulations states that:

"CADPAT is the current CF field combat clothing uniform. The wearing of CADPAT clothing by cadets is not permitted in any circumstances. Cadets are authorized to wear the OG107 uniform (the former olive drab Canadian Forces field uniform) during sqn survival exercises when authorized by the sqn CO. Headdress (the blue beret with the Air Cadet hat insignia, wide-brimmed tan summer hat or toque) and cadet rank slip-ons shall be worn with the OG107 uniform. OG107 uniforms obtained by cadets for sqn training shall not be taken to CSTCs;"

Cadets are not authorized to wear approved headdress or rank slip-ons in any other civilian clothes or military equivalent of the OG107 uniform, or while wearing an incomplete OG107 uniform.

Note that the OG107 uniform is not provided to cadets at public expense (except for temporary loan at CSTCs) and must be procured at the expense of the cadet. The uniform is optional. Cadets can opt to wear appropriate civilian attire instead (without slip-ons or approved headdress).

Cadets are also encouraged to check out Poco Military, a local surplus store located in Langley, when looking for new gear.
