get these clarifications from problems at war out into the populace.
Regarding Gorgets and neck protection:
#1) If it's metal, it does not have to be padded.
#2) If it's an aventail or camail, and it doesn't touch your larynx or spine
(C7 vertebrae or above) while hanging down, it does not have to be padded.
#3) If it's an aventail or camail, and it *does* touch your larynx or spine
(C7 vertebrae or above) while hanging down, it does have to have 1/4" of
padding on those areas.
#4) Leather gorgets require 1/4" of padding.
#1) They do no have to be padded.
Those seemed to be the major issues, and I'll post if any other ones crop
There are no simple answers, but there are many simple questions.
