Cadpat kit I got at Halifax Army Navy Store

 I bought these items from the Halifax Army Navy Store. I have been looking for Cadpat uniform items. These were made by MilTec, a German company. The combat shirt fits well, the trousers fit fine, but I realllllllllly need to do some exercise as with all the tasty food I've been eating, I must have gained ten pounds!
The Cadpat cap is a bit bright, the olive drab Canadian flag t-shirt is great, and the Canadian Airborne t-shirt is a nice addition. All in all, a good amount of kit, just in time for me to start doing renovations on the duplex apartment I'm renting.

This is my Desert DPM kit which I was able to buy at a surplus shop in Ueno, and Akihabara, Tokyo. The cap badge is that of the 2nd Battalion, Irish Regiment of Canada. It's comfortable in the Tokyo heat.

Osprey Publishing - The Para Fitness Guide

Right, I'm a bit overweight. Since my bicycle went tits up, I need to get back into Tabbing to work. From Monday, I'll be back on it.

This guide should help me to get my weight down.
