The instantly recognizable pin-on metal rank insignia of Chief Warrant Officers 3—three black squares on a shiny silver background—is worn on a variety of coats and caps. Insignia available on this age intended for wear on coats and come in pairs; single CW3 pin-on metal insignias designed for wear on dress-uniform headgear can be purchased on our Army Hat Accessories page for this rank

According to DA 670-1, this nonsubdued CW3 pin-on rank insignia is worn the shoulder loops of the Black All-Weather Coat and the Black Windbreaker, but no textual guidance regarding placement on the loops is provided. (Scrutinizing the illustration of the Black Windbreaker seems to indicate the insignia are worn on the squared (shoulder) end of the loop.

The CW3 rank insignia is also authorized for wear on the sleeves of jackets worn as part of the mess and evening mess uniforms. However, regulations allow embroidered rank insignia to be worn instead of nonsubdued metal insignia, and our embroidered insignia crafted with silver bullion serves as the perfect complement to the other sewn-on sleeve ornamentations found on the Blue and White Mess jackets.
