RCMP sweater

Postby Cop23 » Sun Aug 22, 2010 12:57 pm

Anybody knows where to get an almost identical sweater currently used by the RCMP.. That thing has been almost back order for the past 2 years ... and winter is coming soon.

I don't think I've ever seen an RCMP Officer with a sweater on... :ponder:

Would they be similar to the CBSA's?

They didn't even issue me one, and I graduated in 07, they only were issuing what they had in stock. I would not wear it any way.

There used to be a guy who'd set up at the Ottawa memorial service patch show that sold Police sweaters for $15. I used to pick one up every year but they weren't there the last couple times I went.

APS sells them in different styles and color. My one buddy got his at Supply Sergeant in the West Edmonton Mall as well.

He was actually selling police parachutes.. and they were $150 CO. :P


I knew it was either that or car covers to fit me.

I'm not sure where it was purchased, but I have a really nice RCMP sweater. I believe it was purchased for about $79. Anyway, it was manufactured in Canada by VNME and according the tag is part of the "RCMP Collection." Probably one of my favourite pieces of clothing.

Nope. Its a souvenir sweater that is sold to the public. Its part of the RCMP collection, commissioned by the RCMP. I believe the profits go towards the RCMP Heritage Center.

Bought a blue sweater from MD Charlton in New West. It's not my favourite thing to wear, but it keeps me warm without having to wear the jacket. At least the external carrier blends in with it so it looks a bit better.
