For Ranger School, you are required to bring two silk tops. This is a critical item that will be grounds for dismissal from the course if missing during the layout.
For Sapper Leader Course, this is a mandatory item if you are attending a winter class. Winter classes have a report date between 01 AUG (due to possible recycle) and 30 APR.
For SFAS, this is a mandatory item for October 15 - April 15 selection courses and you are required to bring one.
The silks and the waffles will be your best friend at these types of course, despite what time of the year you go. You're going to be moving all afternoon and into the night. You'll be sweaty from the long day of moving and when you stop in your patrol base (if you're lucky), these will be your protector from the cold. Rothco Gen III Level I Silk Weight Underwear Tops are part of the ECWCS (Extended Cold Weather Clothing System) which provides extra warmth in cold climates.
