How to find a tactical jacket for every season of the year?
Like the M65 jackets or bomber jackets, tactical models are designed for the military. High military standards guarantee warmth, functionality and protection against rain and wind. Thanks to it, the tactical jacket is perfect not only for services, but also for ASG fans, survivalists or all kinds of enthusiasts of being in the forest and in the mountains. But how does the tactical model differ from other jackets? First of all, it does not limit mobility, providing easy access to equipment, as well as to items in the pockets of the jacket. We invite you to read the post about spring, winter and summer proposals, from which you can easily choose a model for yourself.
Breathable and waterproof - spring tactical jacket
Are you looking for spring jackets? Light models made of fleece or nylon will be the best. Since spring tactical jackets are to be useful during demanding outdoor activities, it is worth focusing on high breathability of 7000-8000 g / m2 / 24h. Vapor permeability is guaranteed by a softshell membrane or a suitable nylon weave - Taslan or Twill (Diagonal). Water resistance is also important, which - in order for the jacket to work in weather extremes - should be at the level of 10,000 mm. This is the lower limit of full water resistance.
One of the most important features of tactical models is several pockets. Typically, jackets have 4 compartments, and sometimes even 5 or 6. The functionality of the jacket also consists in having ventilation holes or simple cuff adjustment. If you care about the stylishness of your creation more than easy access to equipment, we recommend a blog entry about types of spring military jackets. In the article you will find information about bombers, 60s and Harrington.
On the website of our military online store you will find spring models that match the fleece of a given brand. By wearing a fleece inner layer under the jacket, you will keep yourself warm and comfortable not only in the greenest season, but also in winter.
Polish tactical jackets for the winter
However, if you do not want to wear layers, go for winter models. Even the thickest of winter jackets are light - they are supposed to not restrict the user's movements. Tactical winter jackets in large sizes, such as the 3XL, usually weigh about 1000-1400 g. Low weight, however, does not mean no insulation, which should dry quickly even when completely wet.
An interesting proposition is a winter military jacket compatible with the ECWCS system. As part of the Extended Cold Weather Clothing System, modern winter uniforms of the United States Armed Forces are made. The modified version of the Polish brand model, i.e. the Helikon-Tex Husky jacket, has been additionally supplemented with zippered sides. Thanks to them you can quickly reach your waist with your hand.
Thinner jackets without lining are perfect for early fall, late spring or cooler nights in summer. For the warmest time of the year, choose a Rip-stop single-layer model made of polyester and cotton. A tactical jacket made of them has panels for emblems, thanks to which you can personalize your copy, giving it a proper and unique look.
