Morning Marines, I love the look the way the Silent Drill Platoon have their covers styled. I'm just curious if any previous 8th and I Marines would like to explain how they did their covers would be great!

Like this nice and sharp looking.:marine:

I'm gonna guess It's made of the vinyl material, not the ****ty replaceable tops they issue at boot.

That looks like cloth, invest in a canvas/vinyl one. They even come pre-assembled.

In boot camp, I was a series Honorman and my SDI marched me over to the MCX across the parade deck to purchase a vinyl one... one size (or was it two?) smaller than the halo piece. He sat it out in the sun for a coupla hours so it would 'give' and assembled the entire cover then put it in their little mini fridge overnight. The next morning it literally looked like it was painted on - you could play the drums on the top it was so tight
