Female Uniform Review

Female Uniforms fit evaluations this spring on resesigned aspects of the female service dress blue uniform will produce important information on the fit, comfort and function of the new slacks, jumper and a version of the Dixie Cup – style cover with a sweat and makeup band. Female chiefs and officers can expect new combination covers, designed to more closely resemble the male version

Lightweight Navy Working Uniforms

Also this spring, the Navy Uniform Matters office and the Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility will begin wear testing a lightweight version of the NWU Type I for Sailors assigned in regions with warm climates. The evaluation will focus on the comfort provided by two prototype uniforms made of different fabrics. If the evaluations are successful, Navy leadership will determine which version to add to the sea bag.

Nearly 45,000 Sailors Receive Targeted Payment for Navy Working Uniforms

WASHINGTON (NNS) — More than 44,000 Sailors received a one-time, targeted clothing replacement allowance (CRA) Nov. 15, to ensure they are fully compensated for their Navy Working Uniforms (NWU)..

Earlier this year, the Navy determined Sailors who entered recruit training between Oct. 1, 2007 and April 26, 2009, were either not issued a full set of NWUs or were not provided adequate clothing allowances for their purchase. Once these Sailors were identified and the best method of ensuring proper compensation was determined, Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson, announced the plan to issue the one-time payments recently received. “With these payments, the Navy has ensured Sailors are fully and equally compensated for their uniforms,” said Ferguson.

“These affected Sailors now have the means to maintain their professional appearance as the Fleet prepares to fully transition to the Navy Working Uniform.”

Dec. 31, 2010, is the fleet-wide mandatory wear date of the NWU and is the deadline for the majority of Sailors to have a full complement in their seabags. For those Sailors receiving the targeted payment, they will not be required to have a full complement until Sept. 30, 2011.

Two New Navy Uniforms Announced

WASHINGTON (NNS) — Two new Navy Working Uniforms (NWU) will hit the fleet in fiscal year 2011.

The first, NWU Type II, a desert digital camouflage uniform of four colors with the anchor, Constitution and eagle (ACE) logo embedded in the print, will be worn by special warfare operators and Sailors who support them during deployment and deployment training exercises.

“The desert camouflage uniform is not going away,” said Capt. Vince Drouillard, branch head within Navy’s personnel, plans and policy division. “Sailors, other than Navy special warfare operators and supporting Sailors, will continue to wear the current tricolor desert camouflage utility uniform in desert environments when issued by authorizing commands.”

The second, NWU Type III, is a woodland digital camouflage uniform which also has four colors and the ACE logo embedded in the print. It will be the standard camouflage uniform worn in non-desert environments and stateside.

Both uniforms, announced in NAVADMIN 374/09, are organizational clothing provided to Sailors by commands authorized to issue them.

The unisex uniforms will begin conformance testing to validate design, fit and wear later in fiscal year 2010. Fleet implementation is expected to begin in late 2011 with deploying combat and direct command support commands and units receiving priority in the distribution process.

Both new uniforms have an authorized matching pattern Gortex parka with a removable fleece liner. Sailors can get complete information on the new NWU Type II and Type III uniforms in NAVADMIN 374/09 available at www.npc.navy.mil.
