the collection of USMC cold weather gear and clothing are still growing.

 

today I can show you the:

3 season sleeping bag (S3) with the extreme cold weather bag (black colour) with the bivy bag in Gore-Tex.

just missing the extreme cold weather compression stuff bag..

 

And here are the 4 types of sleeping bags used my the USMC in Norway.

the regular one,the extreme cold,the mss one and the 3s one

 

The next thing is a extreme cold weather mask in green, remember these was used back in the 80s specially by tank drivers.

 

And at last mittens.
