*Note* These jackets come in multiple generations so will have differences in visual/functional appearance. Some have the hood wire, shoulder and hand warmer pockets as pictured - some will not. Due to their numerous inconsistencies, we cannot take requests sorry
These are genuine issue British Army MTP Smocks and form part of the new British Army Personal Clothing System, currently issued to British forces in the new MTP Multi Terrain Pattern camouflage pattern.
These jackets have had constant updates improving on their design, so these may differ sometimes slightly or even largely in appearance. The later versions have side entry hand warmer pockets and shoulder pockets whereas the earlier versions can be missing both. Some of the dump pockets have a mesh lining and others may have poly/cotton material.
Two large chest pockets and two front waist pockets which are all buttoned and expandable. There are also two zipped dump pockets which open between the zipper and chest pockets. Each dump pocket has three dividers for pens/pencils.
Under the arms are double zipped armpit zips for ventilation. Both upper arms will have a hook & loop panel for adding identification or insignia patches (some have shoulder pockets with the hook & loop sewn on). The cuffs are fully adjustable with hook & loop. The front zipper is full length and covered by a hook & loop flap/baffle to make it completely windproof.
The hood is large with an internal loop. There are draw cords at the neck to close the hood, internally at the waist and the base to ensure you can adjust for maximum comfort and protection from the elements. The fabric is very tightly woven polycotton with a water repellent treatment, which of course will wear out with time. It can be revitalized with suitable solutions.
- Concealed Hood (some have a wire frame) for protection
- Zip Front with Windproof hook & loop Storm Flap
- 4 x Large Front Pockets, 2 x Zipped Dump Pockets

does exactly what it says in the description, it's nice and warm and perfect for walks/tramps I like the ridiculous amount of pockets and i even found the top of a MRE in one (and a chocolate wrapper in the other) its honestly a perfect jacket for any outdoor situation.
I bought the goretex version and then this version. This jacket is exactly as described, wind proof so great for layering, the under arm vent zips are ideal. Plenty of pockets and roomy sizing, works as a nice breathable and windproof shell and pretty good for me in central north island weather conditions.
Very handy jacket. Windproof? Yes. Roomy? Yes. Plenty of useful pockets? Yes.
Used for hunting, so needed to be quiet and it's that too.
Really pleased with it.
I was a little dubious spending this much on a parker especially second hand but I needn't have worried, as usual the Brits have produced another cracker . I can honestly say that it is a fantastic piece of kit and fit for purpose. I used this last weekend fishing on the west coast in fairly changeable weather and it exceeded my expectations. Heaps of functionality and it does indeed keep the wind out !
Thanks to the customer services team for providing exceptional after sales service when I ordered the wrong size and had to exchange this jacket for the correct size . Keep up the good work !
