The Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) is a protective clothing system developed in the 1980s by the United States Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center.
This quality and sturdy ECWCS jacket is the perfect choice for all weather conditions. It features special 3-layer fabric system that is waterproof, windproof and breathable at the same time. Moreover it goes with warm removable fleece liner.
Presented parka features cobra style hood with a number of press studs for attachment of a fur ruff, a two-way, full-front zipper with double storm flap, Raglan sleeves, armpit ventilation zippers and adjustable Velcro wrist cuffs. Furthermore there are two cargo pockets on the lower front of a jacket. Fully removable fleece attaches to the jacket with a zipper, has a high collar, two zipped pockets and drawstring bottom, and can be used on its own if necessary.
The jacket is a perfect choice for police, military and EMT as well as for fishing, hunting and a lot of other outdoor activities.
All the actual measurements given on the site as "armpit to armpit x 2" refer to the measurements of the garment and not the size it will fit.
The best way of checking if an item will fit is to measure a similar garment you have which fits well and compare the measurements.
When we give the "Armpit to armpit x 2" on an item it is measured directly at the top of the side seams (armpit to armpit) laid flat, then the measurement is doubled, giving the circumference.
If we state that an item is labelled "to fit xx" / XXcm" please check this against your own measurements.

Being a military enthusiast and going through three 'waterproof' jackets only to find myself drenched I have to say this might my best purchase in ages. The jacket's quality is astounding and it looks utterly beautiful. This with the addition of fast shipping should make it a no brainier for anyone considering giving it a go. 5 stars.
