Several hundred Sailors have volunteered since May to participate in a uniform wear test for a two piece flame resistant organizational clothing variant. The testers were given four different variations of the uniforms (Class A, B, C, and D) along with rules that they have to follow. More than 300 Sailors at 34 afloat and operational shore commands in the U.S. and overseas will participate in the wear test. The trial period will run until September 2018 to determine if the two-piece variant will support all of the requirements for operational units. The reviews and feedback from Sailors are instrumental in influencing the implementation of recommended uniform changes. To learn more about the design features, wear test locations or to provide feedback about the two-piece wear test visit the U.S. Navy Fleet Forces Command website.
