Reminds me of the sets that were sent to Vietnam back in the 60s. "Steel boxers", or somesuch. In such a hot environment, few, if any soldiers ever wore them. This was the era where the scout pilots flew around in their Loach's (http://www.fas.org/programs/ssp/man/uswpns/air/rotary/oh6a_ah-6j_def500.html) in shorts and breastplates alone (with the doors removed). The fire resistant flight suits were considered "too hot" by most.
