The Ideal 10th Mountain Impression

It is necessary to state the "ideal" impression for 10th Mountain Division. Just showing up in whatever WWII uniform you have or can get is acceptable, but not the "ideal". The "ideal" is by no means necessary, required, or suggested, it merely is stated here as an answer to, "Well, if we had to describe an ideal impression it would be..."

All of this would be worn/carried by one individual at one time. It should total out at over 120lbs. Some items would be stored in/on the rucksack (90lbs +) or on your field gear (denoted by an *). The field gear may be stored in the rucksack. This gear listing is sampled from the D-Series, so it was meant for cold weather. We added a few extra additions. No, we do not expect you to wear all this in August.
