Soft Shell Cold Weather Jacket
Shell Layer: Designed to be worn with base and insulative levels for use in moderate to cold conditions. Note: This item is roughly equivalent to the Gen 2 ECWCS parka.
The GEN III ECWCS Soft Shell Cold Weather Jacket is designed for use in cold weather conditions as a soft shell layer combined with other base and insulated layers. Constructed with water resistant materials the Level V Soft Shell Jacket provide light weight, low bulk and extreme comfort for movement. When combined with base and insulative layers this level serves as an excellent outer shell in moderate to cold environments.
The Level V jacket features a two-way center-front zipper opening with a protective wind flap as well as an elastic cord in the bottom hem for adjustability. It is also constructed with a high collar containing a collapsible hood, Velcro closure sleeve pockets and two front zipper pockets, ventilation openings under the sleeves and Velcro fasteners to attach rank badges and name tags. All zippers have a thong for ease of opening and closing when wearing gloves.
Designed primarily for protection at mean monthly temperatures of plus 14 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 10 degrees Celsius) to plus 68 degrees Fahrenheit (plus 20 degrees Celsius).
