It would be great if the NEX would sell them as an optional wear item. I have been in the Navy for over 19 years. Of all the uniforms, I love my NWU uniform the best. The NWU jacket and gore-tex liner are the warmest of all of them. Please authorize the NWU Gore-Tex foul weather trouser to be purchased as optional.
