The Heritage Coat, the new design proposed to replace the USAF’s current service coat, received high marks from the 350-some airmen who sampled it during a wear test, the Air Force announced April, 9, 2009. Here, Lt. Col. Jeff Yocum tries on a heritage coat as part of the fit/wear test during an April 8, 2008, measurement session at the Pentagon. Members of the Air Force Uniform Program Office took the measurements from various airmen so any fit adjustments could be made before the heritage service coats were field tested throughout the Air Force. The service tested three styles: four-button, no belt; fabric belt and slide buckle (shown here); and honor guard style belt and buckle. Officials said the no-belt variant was most popular.
