British MTP Windproof Jacket - New
These are genuine issue British Army MTP Smocks and form part of the new British Army Personal Clothing System, currently issued to British forces in the new MTP Multi Terrain Pattern camouflage pattern.
These jackets differ from the earlier Soldier 95 Windproof cut, pockets have been added to the sleeves with the same capability to “Velcro” on badges and patches as needed instead of painstakingly sewing them in, although Panels are available for those who prefer a more permanent attachment.
Two large chest pockets and two front waist pockets which are all buttoned and expandable. There are also two zipped dump pockets which open between the zipper and chest pockets. Each dump pocket has three dividers for pens/pencils.
Under the arms are double zipped armpit zips for ventilation. Both upper arms have pockets with velcro closure and velcro panels for identification or insignia patches and the left sleeve has a Union Jack. The cuffs are fully adjustable with velcro. The front zipper is full length and covered by a Velcro flap/baffle to make it completely windproof.
The hood is large with an internal loop. It has a wired edge that allows the wearer to close the opening to the face to protect from wind and sand. There are draw cords at the neck to close the hood, internally at the waist and the base to ensure you can adjust for maximum comfort and protection from the elements. The fabric is very tightly woven polycotton with a water repellent treatment, which of course will wear out with time. It can be revitalised with suitable solutions.
