Flip-flops or sandals work best, a must have for showering in both the dorms and field training.
Bags with small logos are ok. Most cadets opt for the SOPC 72 Hour Bag.
Towels should be no wider than 24 inches wide by 44 inches long, which is a hard size to find, luckily Amazon carries them as a set in the correct size.
Highly recommend a directional lock, they're much quicker to open than traditional locks. These count as combination locks. Keyed locks are not allowed.
Must be 1.5L or more.
Required for all eyeglass wearers during field training, and exercises.
Nontransparent and conservative color.
Smart Watches are not allowed (at least not at first) and you'll need to be on time. Make sure that you get one with an alarm.

Toiletry and Hygiene Items (As needed)
Pack as needed, and make sure you have enough of all your toiletry items to last 2 weeks.
