Kit Up! just participated in a conference call with PEO Soldier, talking about a variety of fielding updates and initiatives going on throughout the Army.
We'd like to update our readers on the status of the Army Mountain Combat boot program. Officials say they're close to a decision on the final design of the mountain combat boot after Soldiers spent months evaluating three options.
"We think the final Mountain Combat Boot will exceed everybody's expectations," officials said.
PEO Soldier expects to have a decison on the final design and put out a contract for production next month and plans to field the new boot to all Soldiers beginning next spring.
