This picture was taken about a month ago. The gear is pretty close to what I was wearing in 87-89. The rifle is not correct for the time period. I'll see if I can get you something better in the near future.

Привет, сожалея о моем английском языке, я также использовал переводчика. Все в вашем посте было легко читать, но не ваш последний вопрос. Данная тема - 80-ые стандарта и в начале военного обмундирования 90-ых. Вы можете купить это в любом канадском военном избыточном складе или ebay. очень легкий найти в Канаде. если это не отвечает на ваш вопрос, пожалуйста спросите это снова различным способом. хорошего дня

Even later... I used to go through Rideau Centre in Ottawa daily for the bus, and I distinctly remember seeing OD's walking to and from NDHQ around 2001-02. Mind you they were rare a that time as all the Super-elite admin staff at NDHQ needed there new CADPAT to blend in with the Starbucks environment, before grunts in the field got there's....but thats another matter:cool:


I do love the Volstad drawing (painting?) of the Mcpl form the Vandoo's.... looks like he could give rusty F-word about being a soldier. LOL!

Personally, I miss the OD's. Bomb-proof build quality... well, until one got "Combat-lingerie" syndrome that is ;)

Suxar August 30th, 2011 08:50

Advise shops where I could buy WE ' 82

bomber439 September 3rd, 2011 18:05

It's not in my nature to pose. Hopefully this is for a good cause. This is my CF kit circa 1987/89. I have adapted the webbing to my (airsoft) need. I have removed the SAW mag pouch to replace it with an extra C7 pouch I have also added a 9mm pistol holster and a plastic/rubber bayonet. I hope this helps.

Cool picture, very good representation.

Very nice kit, I remember it well:) Loved the jacket and the pants, hated the combat shirt:) Hated the webbing too, if you wonder why, try living with it for a month in Wainwright:) I see you even have the gas mask bag, brings back memories of gas training:)

For a long time in the 80's we didn't have the band for the helmet, we used rubber bands made from the inner tube of a tire. The buckles on the webbing where often wrapped in gun tape. We used the FN C1 (FAL) wich I loved but they were so old, mine was made in 1958. Around 1986 trials started to find a replacement, in the lot I remember the M16 but my favorite was the FNC:) Nobody wanted the M16 at the time;)

Sasha September 4th, 2011 14:43

I considered putting a set of webbing together with stuff they had at the local surplus store, but balked at the smell. Consider yourself warned; combat gear doesn't react well to being old, damp and unwashed.

Also, I just realised that we went from a pretty customizable modular setup to a static one with 4 mag pouches. DRDC has a lot to answer for...

Very good, soldier! Just one little thing... Put some polish on your boots goddammit! Do me 25! lol!

Very abrupt photos, I hope our command will look not worse.
If not difficult give the reference to shop which sells WE 82
Thankful in advance.

This store carries almost everything for an 80's setup. Here's a few links:

bomber439 September 5th, 2011 10:39

My jacket, pants and helmet were service issue. I acquired the rest thru e-bay and the local surplus stores. I had 3 pairs of new boots but they were lost during my last move. (somewhere between Manitoba and Alberta, there are 3 movers with brand new combat boots). Anyway, about the boots, we were forbidden to use polish as it would remove the waterproof properties of the boot. There was a liquid "boot blackening compound" available and then we would use silicone on top of that. @ Sentinel, you will not get your 25 until the blackening compound is made available to me :)
@ Suxar, try: www.ebay.ca/militaria/canadian also,

The mag pouches sucked ass !!! Try doing an assault with a mag change. Most times I'd drop it down my shirt because trying to get a mag into the pouch ( especially if it was wet) was near impossible. Most of the guys that had done tours cut the cloth/tab system off and stitched velcro on instead. I hated being stuck carrying the C-9 box mags. 3 on the hip and one on the gun made for one helluva a leg workout while doing advances.

I miss the OD stuff but the CADPAT does function phenominally.

The cadpat pattern is excellent. I love it, however I do wish some of the aspects of the older uniforms were included in the new cadpat ones. I'm a reservist and I've only been in for a year or so but there are several things about the current uniforms that annoy me so much. The velcro is the main problem. I wish you could have the nametag sewed on, and ever the flag because I find the flag coming off if your in a hurry to throw on your tac vest as it catches up some times.

Military life is very hard. Just joined military and I am finding hard to survive. Adam staff is pretty nice here

I always thought DLR shared some of the blame, but DRDC?

Basic-Wedge April 26th, 2013 11:21

I realize this is an old thread come back to life, but this particular era of Canadian military history is the primary focus of our airsoft team, the South Manitoba Rifles.

For those looking for information about the Canadian Army of the pre-CadPat era, our team's website contains a wealth of details on the subject.

You can see for yourself at: http://www.southmanitobarifles.com

If you like what you see on our website, you're welcome to register, but most of the information about the Canadian Army during the Cold War is viewable by all visitors.


I'd also like to mention that members of our team participate annually in Operation East Wind, a Cold War reenactment event held each March in Oklahoma.


nichtessen April 29th, 2013 21:58

80's style. What was the head gear? I've seen a helmet with a type of camo pattern and that weird OD bush hat. As for the weapon. Hearing mainly the FAL was in use.

nichtessen April 29th, 2013 22:11

Thanks so much Skeletor. Can try and complete my kit over the next couple of months.

Silverback93 April 30th, 2013 21:29

After seeing this, I've definitely been totally swayed to create a full OD loadout.

peacekeeper May 1st, 2013 01:05

Gotta love the peter pan hats :) , still got mine somewere . I still rock my old M82 pattern gear .

peacekeeper May 1st, 2013 01:06

hey since were talking about old 80-90's stuff , did they ever make an accurate FN ? id love to get one again , I Had one for awile ( the king arms one ) and made the mistake of selling it .

Mordarski J.A. May 1st, 2013 07:06

The closest thing to the C1 I believe is the Ares model (modeled after the L1A1). It needs a complete wood-furniture makeover, but it shouldn't be terribly difficult. A teammate of mine had a KA version, decent weight (MUCH lighter than the real thing) and it threw BB's a decent distance.

Unfortunately, I got bit by the GBBR bug so I'm holding onto my pipe dream that maybe someday someone might actually make a GBBR version. I know it's not likely to happen though.

nichtessen May 1st, 2013 10:08

Was just looking at a FN close to the style. I cant even find spare mags for a FN that isn't mid-highcap with the damn wheel on the bottom! Different style mags that fit this?

peacekeeper May 2nd, 2013 00:49

I had the king arms one , I found exrtra mags for it

siglynn May 2nd, 2013 02:59

Was issued the c2 and the useless bra during basic and was the last course to do the c5 and also test the 50cals during the testing fase in pet what a crazy place that was but would not change it for the world and miss the old place.

spattsgt May 2nd, 2013 13:03

Just my 2 cents, but

The ares or ka L1A1 is the preferred weapon as when I was looking at them, both have the proper flash eliminator and a folding cocking handle. The KA FAL has the round cocking handle and could do in a pinch I suppose

Also if you want to not worry about magazine pouches, and you can if you can find it, 64 pattern webbing might do well. The 64 pattern webbing had-
1. belt with a cheap buckle
2. Y strap web suspenders
3. Mess tin carrier
4. Water bottle carrier w/canteen
5. Grenade pouch
6. Gas Mask
7. Holster for 9mm finger for those of the officer class

I know I still have mine, because my son uses it, so I try and post some pics when I get a chance

Mordarski J.A. May 2nd, 2013 19:42

I lucked out when I was looking for 82 Pattern web gear. I was trying to find C7 magazine pouches, and managed to come across a couple of C1 pouches. Did I jump on them? HELL YES :D

I forgot there was a:
1. compass carrier. Most of us use to attach our compasses to our button of our top shirt pocket
2. bayonet frog from for your bayonet

When I was with the Hasty-Ps from 1974 to 79 I wore the od green combat uniform and my web gear was the old style with 2 ammo pouches, mess tins, canteen(American style) and web frog for the bayonet. Some time around 76 or 77 we were issued the new velcrow web gear, which was 100% better than the old web gear. With the velcrow web gear I had on the belt 2 canteens and carriers, 2 mess tin carriers with one set of aluminum mess tins. The spare mess tin carrier I used to hold the can goods from the "IRP's". The arraignment was one canteen on either hip then one mess tin carrier beside the canteens and in the middle at the back was my rolled up ponchio. Between the left canteen and mess tin pouch was my bayonet and it's web frog
