If they really need one...sure.
Which rules out anyone wearing hiking pants.
True story, when we were newly together my wife was tasked with picking up "the goods." One time she came back with those. I was flattered, but you ever stick your thing in a trash bag?
Yes but she had a heart of gold. Drank like a fish but a heart of gold.
How's she doing by the way?
I'm amused by all the folks that carry extra uniform items. I suppose I can see carrying an extra shirt on longer trips when the weather is hot, but pants?
My roller has things I may need/use on overnights and none of those are extra uniform items. I mean, sybians take up a lot of bag space.
It's mostly in case something biologically nasty happens to them; I once narrowly avoided being puked upon.
The Brasilia was a "clean shirt every day" type operation if you cared about your fellow pilots and a "single shirt for 4 days in Fresno" if you hated them.
That's why the tide pen was invented
Given the size of sweat stains from a turboprop w/o APU or PC air in August, the pen would be empty by lunch on day 1
It's all fun and games until some stray cotter pin on the main door, safety wire, or door latch catches your pants and gives them a nice tear....
Or you forget to face your yogurt away from you prior to opening it.
Been there, done that...
Or your captain dumps an entire cup of coffee on you.
I ruined two shirts in one trip once. Was taking a sip of coffee when the lid came off. Then when I was going to iron the spare the next morning, I forgot to inspect the iron. Ended up with a big black burn mark on shirt number two. Ended up going back to coffee shirt.
Or the hot cup of coffee falls over during the takeoff roll and spills all over your crotch. Didnt happen to me luckily.
It was an accident in the jetway and he felt pretty bad about it
It's a well known fact that wide-spread use of the uniform jacket is little more than a shirt-saving tactic meant to cut down on packing and reduce laundry frequency.
"Looks like we are going back to the terminal for more coffee and a bag of ice!"
Yet another reason to wear the sweater
Just in case trolling @Autothrust Blue wasnt reason enough.
Well let's be honest, that's the main reason.
at least you wear a lid, I guess
Suggestions on EFB bags? I just got the Aerocoast Pro Cooler 1 and it's a bit small to hold a Bose headset and Surface alone...
Anyone else have suggestions/lists of the food situation and how you do it for a standard 4 day?
I was not a fan of the sweater. I wore one for the above stated reasons and because under a Perone with the liner you were ok to be the one standing watch for the hotel van during a Syracuse overnight in January. But I didn't like it.
