1/16/2013 - SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- 

With the cold weather setting in, we are all wearing a little extra clothing to keep warm. Many military personnel are improperly wearing certain winter items with most offenses relating to watch caps, the sage green fleece and physical training uniform. Below are extracts from Air Force Instruction 36-2903 on the proper wear of these items:

Black watch cap. When wearing authorized outer garments, service dress or physical training uniform. Cap will fit snugly or squarely over top of head (tight fit). No bunching and no sagging.

Sage green fleece. Only worn outdoors with the Airman Battle Uniform; remove when indoors. (Exception: Local commanders have the authority to allow indoor wear of the sage green fleece jacket as mission needs dictate.) The sage green fleece is authorized for wear as an outer garment with the ABU only.

Sage green watch cap. Watch cap may be worn only when approved by the installation commander and only when wearing ABU authorized outer garments or physical training uniform.

Short-sleeved PTU/IPTU shirt. The short-sleeve shirt will be tucked into shorts or running pants at all times. Do not remove or cut sleeves. Short and long-sleeved white or light gray form fitting undershirts, (i.e. spandex, lycra or elastic material) may be worn and visible under the short-sleeved PTU/IPTU shirt. Undershirt must be tucked in.

PTU/IPTU shorts. Short, mid and full length solid black or dark blue form fitting sportswear (i.e. spandex, lycra or elastic) may be worn and visible under both the PTU/IPTU and optional IPTU running shorts.

Cold weather accessories. Cold weather accessories may be worn outdoors only. Gloves will be black or dark blue leather, knitted, tricot or suede, or a combination of leather, knitted, tricot, and suede and without logos. Scarf will be black or dark blue and less than 10 inches in width. Earmuffs will be solid, black or dark blue, and may wrap around either the top/rear of the head.
