I thought only seamen made the swish swish sound.

Recoil Therapy: "With the 'notorious' track jacket, we've made updates to the fabric to minimize the noise it makes during workouts," said 2nd Lt. Maverick Wilhite, the office's program manager for PT gear.

Good lord they put a butter bar in charge of things.  Having been one back in the far mists of time I can verify that they can't find their ass with both hands.

Got to be an academy grad stuffed into that slot to have a nice resume/OER filler - "Was in charge of implementing uniform changes for the entire Air Force..."  I wonder who he's related to...


With a name like "Maverick," he's almost surely a Colonel's child, and feels like he has a lot to live up to.

Good thing those shorts have pockets like the 'pajama' pants I been buying... I need a lot of extra shiat when I'm exercising or sleeping.

Pershing123: I am remembering a golden/yellow tee shirt that said Air Force on it.  I don't remember the shorts.  I don't remember any physical exercise after basic. I gained ten pounds in basic.  I gained another ten pounds in tech school, mostly from eating pie while waiting for my roommate Frank who was an INCREDIBLY slow eater. Jesus, Frank, hurray up!


And you probably wonder why the rest of us say "the military and the Air Force"......

KarmicDisaster: So, gym shorts and a T shirt? I guess.


It probably cost a ridiculous amount of taxpayer dollars to come up with combo. Although I gotta say, making  the T shirt gray was pure genius.

FLMountainMan: I'd love to see what the Air Force paid for what it looks like you could pick up at Old Navy for around $25.00 total.  I'm guessing a per-outfit cost north of $80.00, factoring in all the R&D, procurement administration, and administrative costs charged by the vendor.


go to old navy for air force outfit and mind blown

You think that budget goes to anything other than contractors pockets?

Just the fact that there is an article about something that High School gym teachers mastered like 50 years ago show just how much waste there is in the DoD.
