This was the first thing I bought from ArmyandOutdoors.I always wanted a decent jacket, this one is so well made- it’s hard to buy quality clothes. It’s actually my best jacket for cutting firewood as the sawdust doesn’t stick to the material- that wasn’t the intended purpose but it does it so well

austrian army surplus jacket

I have been looking for a non-plastic-membrane type of all-weather jacket for some time. Lots of M65 knockoffs and rubbish plastic stuff etc but nothing suitable until I saw this one. Quality build, comfortable and with a double layer construction. I just took it out for a walk in the wind and rain for about an hour. No rain got through at all and I remained very comfortable throughout - none of that horrible sweaty feeling you get with goretex type rubbish. The hood is only single thickness but it let no rain through at all. It fastens nicely around the face and does not hinder vision as it moves with your head. The sleeves are long enough that you can shrug your arms up to keep your hands inside so this works well to keep them warm and dry when the rain is coming in almost horizontally. The pockets are not too bulky which is good as this stops stuff from flapping around all over the place which can happen with the bulky box-type pockets you find on SAS smocks etc. No velcro on sleeves or storm flaps which is hard to find these days - really good as it inevitably gets bunged up with crud or sticks to everything and makes lots of noise when unsticking it. It is long enough to cover your backside and keep your hip pockets dry too. Overall this is a top quality jacket that so far has provided faultless protection against foul weather with the added bonus of remaining comfortable inside, the kind of comfortable feeling you get from natural fibres. A bit on the pricey side (hence only 4 stars instead of 5) however if I lost this one for any reason I would happily stump up the cash for another one. So much more functional, comfortable and durable than all the other Chinese plastic trash that floods the market and I am now looking to see if I can find any trousers in the same material. Buy it, you will not regret it. Plus the colour makes it more user-friendly for social interaction (as opposed to camouflage).
