Naval Monte Ground Defense Force. (Old Factbook, will be replaced soon)

UNIFORMS:

When designing the uniforms for the then new Ground Defense Force many within the military were inspired by (ironically enough) a communist nation called Petrokovia. Many saw the great potential that a basic 5 layered system can do to their army since it can insures protection from heat, cold, chemical warfare, biological warfare, radiation, lacerations, shock waves, and blunt force trauma, all while providing as little impairment to vision and movement and as much benefit in and out of combat as possible. Since than has stayed as a main feature of the Ground Defense Force, only ever allowed to change whenever new technology emerges so the uniforms can be properly upgraded.

Layer 1: Underwear, Socks T-shirt.
Layer 2: Modified Class-A Hazmat System. This serves the purpose of protecting troops from biological warfare, chemical warfare, and radiation. It has the added benefit of being fire resistant.
Layer 3: Rip-Stop CarbonX Basic Uniform (see link at bottom). These uniforms can protect against direct flame, extreme heat, molten metal, hot/flammable liquids, and arc flash hazards, and will not burn, melt, or ignite. Their protective properties can not fade from washing or intense exposure. They also vent heat, wick away moisture, and dry quickly. They're rip-stop as well, which protects against most lacerations and helps guard against stab wounds (so they are protected from bladed weapons).
Layer 3.5: If in a cold environment, a thick wool sweater is worn over layers 1, 2, and 3, and also over the bulletproof vests.
Layer 4: Body Armor. This includes a number of bulletproof items. The armor that is bulletproof includes: Helmet, Gas Mask, Tactical Vest, Shoulder Pads, Knee Guards, and Shin Guards. Other pieces of body armor include Steel Toe Combat Boots (Which are slip and oil resistant, abrasion resistant, and EH rated) and Weighted-Knuckle Gloves.
Layer 5: Load Bearing Equipment (LBE). This includes their ammunition, food, water, navigation and survival equipment, etc.

Trenchcoats have also been a common sight in the Ground Force since many Soldiers and Officers wear them (most likely a throw back from the previous army). Because of the common sight it's often been joked at that trenchcoats are the unoffical sixth layer.

( CarbonX company is a real company that has in fact made uniform that can deliver on it's promised protection. Here's a link to there site http://www.carbonx.com/science-innovation.php) (I would also like to thank Petrokovia for the idea of the five layer uniform and an apology for copying and pasting the uniform, what you wrote down was better than what I could write for them but hey at least I try to make them different)
