Effective immediately, U.S. Navy commands can order the Improved Flame Resistant Variant (IFRV) coverall. The IFRV addresses comfort and durability issues found with the original Flame Resistant Variant (FRV) coverall. Sailors stationed aboard ships and submarines will be issued a minimum of two IFRV coveralls with units authorized to procure name tags using unit operating target funds. The manner of wear will be the same as the FRV coveralls, prescribing wearers to don full sleeves and secured fastenings. The current 9-inch black, steel-toed boot and Navy or command ball caps are authorized for wear with the coverall. Blue or brown undershirts are authorized for wear with the IFRV, although blue undershirts are being phased out with the introduction of the Navy Working Uniform Type III.
