Soldiers to test new jungle boots, hot weather uniforms this spring | Army Times

The Army is sending new jungle boots and an improved hot weather uniform to soldiers in Hawaii in January.

Troops with the 25th Infantry Division will wear the new gear in different settings, including a Pacific Pathways exercise rotation to the Philippines and Thailand in February.

Program Executive Office Soldier will collect feedback from the soldiers in March to see if anything needs to be tweaked with the boots or uniform.

A limited number of soldiers — around 100 — have worn the Improved Hot Weather Combat Uniform, but January will be the first time soldiers have put on the new version of the jungle combat boot.
