Kenya Defence Forces Uniform


Like most organized armed forces in the world, Kenya's military has standardized uniforms worn by its soldiers. Each of the three arms of the Kenya Defence Forces has got its own distinctive set of uniforms that are used in specific situations and which also display the rank and arm of the military to which a soldier belongs to.

The types of uniforms worn by service members in the Kenya Defence Forces are:

Utility Uniforms
Utility uniforms also known as Working Uniforms are worn by the soldiers while performing the day-to-day military duties. These includes the camouflaged Army combat uniform, Air Force flight suit, Navy diving suit, Chef dress, Doctors and Nurses uniforms.

Service Uniforms
Service Uniforms are the ceremonial dresses worn by the soldiers during official functions such as state events, funerals, and weddings. A full-service dress generally consists of polished black shoes, trouser, a pressed collared shirt and a coat. Some Service Uniforms can be modified into Utility Uniforms of certain administrative personnel e.g Air Force soldiers wear a modified service dress without the coat as their daily uniform.

Mess Dress
Mess Dress is also known as the Evening Dress and is a formal uniform that the soldiers wear during black-tie events such as formal dinners and parties. The mess dress can be said to have a "suit" like appearance.

Physical Training Uniforms
Physical Training Uniforms are worn by the soldiers during field events such as exercise, jogging, working out in the gym and during physical fitness tests. They mostly consist of track suits, shorts, t-shirts and sports shoes.
