The current issue British Forces waterproof jacket is constructed from Goretex three layer laminated material incorporating an outer water repellent layer, middle barrier layer and inner breathable layer. The jacket is designed to be highly waterproof against medium to heavy showers. Large skirt and collar help to protect the hips and thighs as well as the neck area from wind and blown water droplets. Cuffs close with velcro hook and loop to help seal off the arms against water. The jacket closes with a central two-way chunky zip and also has an extra zip to allow easy reaching of contents inside jacket or shirt pockets without opening the whole front. Zip is covered by two wind and storm baffles which velcro over each other. Bottom of skirt has elasticated shock cord and toggle adjustment to bring this area close to the body and prevent wind from driving up from below. Retractable hood can be stowed away under collar.
