A minimum of one set of non-cotton long johns or polypro undergarments are required.

  • Technically, in this time frame Bundeswehr troops would mostly be using the tricot cotton undergarments. Due to the fact that cotton is a poor base layer in cold wet climates, we require all attendees to have synthetic undergarments instead.
  • During this time frame, the thick brown USGI polypro set would have been available on the secondary market. These sets are still commonly available and make a good choice for East Wind use.
  • Some attendees prefer thinner wicking style under garments, these are fine as well.
  • Remember cotton kills, we will not accept any cotton long johns.
