French Army - Woodland CCE Camo "Gore-tex" Jacket - Super Grade

French army "Gore-Tex" jacket in CCE camouflage pattern. This garment is awesome, and full of clever fitting and function additions. Used as an shell over-jacket, it adds a great waterproof layer on to top of warm garments worn beneath or even protective biking gear.

The front zip has a quick release facility so that when the zip slide is pulled right up to the top, it is possible to wrench the zip apart and separate it right down to the bottom and 'bug out' quickly. See the video here

Motorcyclists may be interested in the design being suitable for use over a military helmet too, and so there's extra capacity in the hood's volume to permit this. But of course, not everyone needs this extra capacity, and so there's an adjuster strap at the rear to prevent the hood covering the wearer's face, genius.

French army "Gore-Tex" jacket in CCE camouflage. Fantastic quality, genuine military waterproof jacket full of features including:

  • Super Grade - Excellent condition - may show minor signs of use or storage.
  • 2 Styles available: with external pockets or without
  • Two waist pockets.
  • Two vertical zipped chest map pockets.
  • Quick-release zip-fastened front - with press stud storm flap. The zip is also 'two-way' and so allows access to under garments, or makes sitting down easier.
  • Zipped under-arm vents to allow air to circulate and to help the wear to stay dry, even during heavy exercise.
  • MVP hood is concealed within the collar when not needed and has an elasticated cord tightening system with sprung loaded locking dongles.
  • High storm collar to protect the neck and lower face from the elements.
  • Elasticated cord at the hem for retaining heat and a fitted look if desired, by use of sprung dongles.
  • Velcro adjusted cuffs.
  • Hood has capacity for helmet and a rear adjuster strap for when worn normally.
Unissued Larger sizes available here.


Waterproof and breathable MVP material allows sweat to escape while keeping out wind and rain.

This is one of our most popular "Gore-Tex" jackets and it is easy to see why, packed with features, hard wearing and built to last. They come in CCE camouflage pattern which was first issued to French forces in 1991 and is still in use to this day, perfect for a wide range of outdoor activities. These jackets are designed as a hard shell to go over thermal layers so as a result they are a large cut to allow for movement and layering. 

See our technical notes page regarding Gore-Tex.

Very important note on size options. 
These "Gore-tex" jackets are designed to be a lightweight waterproof and breathable outer layer (hard shell), to be worn over thermal layers so they are a generously cut to allow for layering and movement. So, the small size we offer is designed to be worn over multiple under layers by a person with about a 38 inch chest. The actual jacket is approximately 48 inches around the chest and so anyone with a chest up to approximately 44 inch would be able to wear it with a light shirt underneath only.
