Video: What's in the kit of an Estonian winter soldier?

Skis, snowshoes and a shovel – these are just some of the items that soldiers in Estonia carry in their winter kit. In this feature, Sergeant Remys-Bert Ville provides a comprehensive list of equipment required for Estonian soldiers to operate during winter months, where temperatures can sink as low as minus 20 degrees Celsius. 

 Footage includes shots of Sergeant Ville presenting each item to camera and Estonian infantry soldiers walking through the snow near a forest. All NATO enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup Estonia training is conducted in line with Estonian national COVID policy. The Battlegroup is currently operating as a 'bubble' in order to achieve maximum output from this training, whilst protecting personnel.
