By October 2020, all soldiers will be required to take and pass the Army’s new gender- and age-neutral Combat Fitness Test, which has more events and less time for rest than the service’s current PT test, officials said on Monday.
October 1 marks a sad day for the Army’s classic gray IPFU uniforms as the branch moves on to sleeker option: the Army Physical Fitness Uniform. By that date, the new, darker duds will be the Army-wide standard and required gear for all soldiers.
Boho female retailer Forever 21 has coopted the standard issue Army PT workout shirt and turned it into...um, high fashion? The shirt, which is an exact replica of the one soldiers wear but with a giant knife-slash down the back, is very expensive. It’s also very stupid.
