    The same at every other CSTC. If you want your own, you will need to go to a surplus store and by them. They're quite inexpensive (I paid something like $3 for the pants and shirt) but the boots can run a little more (something like $20 if I recall correctly).

    Make sure you shop around also. Most surplus stores operate on supply and demand. I went to a shop that was having problems acquiring OD combats and I was buying my first pair, not sure of what I should be paying. I bought the shirt/jacket for 17$, Pants for 65$, Boots for $60. For that price I could have gotten a pair of better boots, and brand new Marpat combats at another store.

    Make sure you buy stuff in good condition; they may be a bit pricier but they'll last longer.

    Affirmative. Both Air and Army cadets are authorized to wear the old OD Combats.

    Ironic, my local store has a Cadet Discount, too!

    Yeah, worth it. Seriously, not only do you look like most other Cadets, the Combats dry faster, are super comfy, and a whole lot more.

    $120 sounds a little steep, but is that including the boots. And make sure that it isn't CF lingerie if you paying top dollar like that.

    I know which store you're talking about, but I got my pair online and it only cost around $60.
    However I did buy the combat boots at the store you're talking about...and those boots might be a bit overly weathered, just a heads up.
    Combats are in very good condition at the store, just putting it there.

    There's a place near Port Credit that sells CF stuff, but it's pretty small and honestly Beaver's is the best. If you need spare rank insignia (Such as patches or CADET slipons) there's a place on Yonge St. near Bloor, else said location is pretty pricey.

    Since other types of combat clothing were mentioned, I thought it important to note:

    The only type of combat uniform that can have air cadet insignia worn on it is the OG-107 uniform. Also, the only insignia that can be worn is the issued blue stuff. Don't go out buying your own insignia unless it is exactly the same as the issued stuff - in which case, you might as well save your money and ask your supply officer for an extra set of slip-ons.

    No, the one I'm talking about is beside Times Square in Markham. I completely forgot the name, but it's listed as a "camping and sporting goods" store.
