Army Gore-Tex Jacket - Austrian Olive Green - Fixed Hood
One of the most popular jackets we have, and very hard to come by, these olive green army "Gore-Tex" jackets are genuine Austrian military issue but were discontinued in favour of the later M65 Style Jacket. However they still remain a popular design due to the larger fixed hood on this model, as opposed to the new version which is rolled in the collar.
These jackets have a waterproof and breathable "Gore-Tex" membrane which is sandwiched between an outer and inner layer. The membrane allows sweat (water vapour) to pass out of the coat, while keeping the rain and wind out. The outer fabric layer serves to protect the Gore-Tex layer from cuts and damage that may happen when out and about, crawling through undergrowth or trees. The inner layer provides an additional thermal layer and serves as a comfortable liner for the wearer. Having 3 layers makes this jacket slightly heavier and warmer than a standard Gore-Tex or similar MVP hard shell.
Other features of this jacket include:
- Olive green colour, popular with people who don't want to look too military!
- 2 large waist pockets.
- An internal snow skirt for increased thermal retention.
- Drawstring waist and hood.
- Bundesheer (Austrian Armed Forces) badge on the shoulder.
