I bought this jacket knowing we had rain coming, I didn’t know the river would rise to 14 mtrs though. This jacket works very well, no sweating and no leaking. I bought the second hand Flecktarn rain jacket for the same price- but it leaks- this jacket is superior in that it’s very waterproof
Excellent quality jacket and already worked well in light rain - 4 out of 5.
It has two good sized chest pockets with a funky chest-zip to access to any garments underneath. Although access to the chest pockets might be an issue if you are wearing a back pack too.
The jacket also lacks hip pockets which would have been handy for gloves etc. but as this is military issue they may have been omitted to enable belt webbing to be worn.
A hint on sizing - from the photo and (video) these appear to be waist-length - normally I would have ordered 180cm length but these were sold out so I settled for 190cm - for me this is ideal and length extends to mid-thigh.
Lastly I located a YouTube video where a Russian chap demonstrates the jacket and trousers (SKU: WET1049-E-92) - interesting camouflage effect in light snow...
Great bit of kit at a great price with quick delivery
Am very impressed with these jackets, so much so i bought a second. Top quality, fully waterproof and windproof. Generously sized so you can fit what ever layers you like underneath. Have had mine in heavy rain without any leakage at all, as well as pushing through water soaked bush and undergrowth for hours during winter and remained warm and dry throughout!
Another 10/10 military surplus product!
