    MODIFIED UNIFORMS

    (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY NKOMO)

    MODIFIED jackets are military jackets that have been "changed" by their former owner by adding the lower front pockets to the upper arms. Sometimes the former owner will use other jackets or pants to add the pockets to the upper arms. These modifiecations were done so the user could have easier access to their pockets. Many times, SF soldiers would have their lower pockets covered by equipment or gear. This proved difficult for them to have access what was in the pockets, so they moved them to the upper amrs. Upper arm proved to be easier access. This was not a regulation change, so most of the people who had modified jackets were SF types who had MUCH leeway in regards to uniforms. The removal of the lower pockets was not absolute, sometimes, there were just extra pockets added to the jacket. Occasionally there are other changes made to the item like velcro affixed to allow glint tape to be added, etc.
