BCT: Male Swimsuit?


USMA 2022
Jul 10, 2017

In the packing list for BCT, I only see a swimsuit being required for females. Are males issued a swimsuit, or is there a swimsuit requirement that I am missing somewhere?

Thank you!

Males swim naked. You're all set.
Maybe everybody knows the answer except for me, but I'm still looking for an answer. I've heard different answers from people so I'm actually not sure.
They’re likely going to have you swim in your PTs. That’s what we did for the Army Swim Test and the CWST. Don’t take my word for it, because in the cursory re-skimming of the documents on the portal I couldn’t find where I read that.

On a related note, make sure to bring grid squares, a shot group tightener, daytime adapters for your night vision goggles, and chem light batteries to R-Day. Don’t forget your **REMOVED** either.

You are issued swim trunks during Beast that will be used during the CBT introductory swim test and later during Survival Swimming.
