MJP said:Troops can be dumb and carry dumb things. Can't fix the kit weight gap fast (ie use new tech in short timeframe) so how about a unit make a kitlist that makes sense and allows for some variability due to role/posn and leaders lead and do inspections and ruthlessly culls kit not required.
A few years ago we were in Pet for IBTS. During the time there, we moved out of the biv into the woods for two nights to give the younger soldiers some experience in sleeping under the stars. While watching my Sect pack, I noticed a young lady packing her hair dryer and curling iron into her ruck. I quickly stopped her and had another young lady with more experience help her re-pack. The look on her face though when I asked her where she intended on plugging in her hairdryer was priceless.
