The army physical training uniform is made up of many different parts. The most commonly used is the summer wear. The summer wear consists of a short sleeve shirt, black running shorts, reflective vest, white socks, and running shoes. The cold weather physical training uniform consists of improved running jacket, improved running pants, long sleeve physical training shirt, black running shorts, reflective vest, white socks, a black fleece cap, black gloves, and running shoes. Soldiers may not mix or match PFU and IPFU items. When soldiers wear either the PFU or IPFU as a complete uniform, they will keep the sleeves down on the sweatshirt or jacket, the legs down on the pants, and they will tuck the T-shirt inside the trunks. Soldiers may not roll or push up the sleeves of the PFU sweatshirt or the IPFU jacket. Soldiers may wear the sleeves of the PFU sweatshirt cuffed or uncuffed; they may not cuff the IPFU jacket sleeves. Soldiers will wear the black knit cap pulled down snugly on the head, with the bottom edge of the cap folded up; soldiers will not roll the edge of the cap. A similar, commercially designed black knit cap is authorized for wear. There are no restrictions on the combination of IPFU items worn, unless the commander has prescribed a particular combination for formation. The shoes are at the commander’s discretion. The reflective vest is designed for safety.
The road guard vest or reflective vest is usually yellow in color. The vest has the name of the company name stenciled into in. The reflective vest usually has two strips. One contains the person’s name and rank. The other one has second strip has the persons unit. The only authorized insignia for wear on the IPFU is the physical fitness badge. When the badge is worn it will be placed on the upper left front side of the IPFU-shirt, sweat jacket, and/or long sleeve shirt. The physical fitness badge is given to people who earned a 290 or higher on their physical training test.
