It doesn't look like there are any, just that the CAF is ordering more of them.

Happy to be corrected, but I noted the "Mao collar" on the jacket with this batch, similar to this ...

Are such collars already in the Canadian system?

Yes they are.  They're just usually folded down.

I've only ever seen them folded down, in photos and on troops, looking like regular collars - thanks for that!

They got years of old stock in my size, so I don't think I will ever get the 'new' style.  I just got my kit, and the tunic/pants were new never worn 2006 dated =P

You say that like it's a bad thing.

And in the wash, the collar Velcro always attaches itself to the sleeve Velcro so that your shirt comes out in a big ball.

Yup. Or attached to other clothes. I've had to start washing my uniforms separately.

At least it finds the missing socks for you.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
