Must be nice eh? Comes in at 0930 leaves at 0330, gets paid for the full day, denies as many uniform requests as possible.


Our previous uniform clerk was simply deleting the requests as he couldn't be bothered. He was waiting on a civilian job with the RCMP, and once it was clear he was getting it he simply quit doing his job. Not that he was exactly good at it before, but... :banghead:

He was just preparing for a long and fruitful career with the countries most efficient and forward thinking law enforcement agency.

Takes 1.5 hrs for lunch to go to Goodlife... .. .

Side note, the wiki seemed to bring up a ton of good topics, but I have a feeling when someone's acting assignment in Uniforms at HQ expires and they move to a different program this will all go to the side lines.

Seems the only way we'll ever get new, decent, uniform components.

Just FYI, I wore similar tac pants for a work position. The elastic portion helps your uniform shirt stay tucked (especially when wearing a vest).
It also adds comfort for the wearer as the elastic is about 4" height and assists with weight of cargo pants and tac belt by displacing it over a greater area.
KCCO. Wake up. Kick butt. Repeat.

Let me clarify. That portion is on the inside, yes. However, there is an elastic portion on the outside, above the ass!

Both styles of 5.11 pants and the LAPG pants I wear have elastic waistbands on them. I find them much more comfortable than the standard fixed waistband as they expand/contract with your movement too.

Thanks to you... I got myself a pair of these, also a similar version in >>> Lightweight <<< ... They are both pretty awesome! The lightweight ones have odd back pockets, they are deep and the openings are on an angle, so instead of your wallet positioned against your butt (for those that put your wallet back there), it rides slightly lower and is EXTREMELY comfortable if you sit on your butt all day... I actually had one woman at Tim Horton's just south of Gravenhurst inquire about my pants, she wanted to get some for her Husband (she swears she wasn't checking out my butt, LOL).

She didn't ask about your TImbits, offer to roll up your rim for you? No? Probably just liked the pants.
