Uniform Updates
 
Rumor is the Karbon jacket is being added to the FOM along with some sweaters being allowed as outer garments...íbout time we got some 21st century jacket options.

I would be absolutely shocked but I seriously hope youíre right. Culturally I just donít see it happening in ATW.

I wear a karbon jacket and under liner at my new company. So much better than a regular pilot blazer.

How does the jacket compare to the flasher overcoat or leather jacket warmth-wise? Would the liner be necessary for really cold temps?

Never been so happy to be wrong. Goodbye flasher jacket. Thank you ATW Santa.

Well, it's not as bulky for starters. It's every bit as warm with the liner I'd say, maybe more. I stopped bringing my personal jacket with me and just rock the karbon. Less crap to carry around is a perk and the liner doubles as a nice summer jacket that compacts nicely in my bag.

They announced the Karbon jacket and mentioned other changes but didnít say what the other changes are. Why wouldnít they just list all of the changes so we can make an educated decision on what to spend our uniform money on?
