Quality Soft Shell type jacket (version II) based on the Soft Shell APCU (Advance Protective Combat Uniform) Level V, Generation III. It is durable and windproof, lightweight and comfortable, made of breathable fabric, designed to be worn in combination with various base layer garments. The high collar, adjustable hood, double storm flap with Velcro fasteners over the front zipper, and secure closures at wrists, neck and waist make the perfect protection against wind and rain.
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.

How to return your order:
I bought this jacket as an alternative to the ECWS coats. On initial look it has many pockets and they are very well situated. The chest pockets are deep! very deep, they almost go down to your lower chest, not sure if its a good or bad thing. Only moan is there is no lower hand pockets like most coats or jackets so you are stuck with the chest pockets. Also you have zips on the inside of your arms as vents to keep the hot air out if you are sweating a lot. The jacket does what it does and stops the wind well, it is water resistant NOT WATER PROOF! big difference! this will keep you dry for a bit but if its heavy downpour you will get wet and it won't stop you from keeping dry. There is a hood in the collar that folds up and that is probably the only thing that is water proof. There is draw string at the bottom of each side of the jacket in order for you to tighten the jacket to keep cold air out. Overall its a good alternative but not recommended for super wet enviroments.
