Enhanced ECWCS Fleece Jacket/Liner
This is a great mid-weight Polar
Fleece Jacket when worn alone,
or as a zip-in liner
for Enhanced ECWCS Gen I Parka,
this Microfleece jacket/liner is made for comfort and warmth...
Not just another cool looking, wind-resistant fleece jacket with
abrasion resistant additions throughout the jacket; Fox's Enhanced
ECWCS Fleece Jacket/Liner pulls double duty as a mid-weight liner to a layering system or as a
great casual duty outer shell that provides you with a number of great features.
Where do you begin with a jacket that's loaded with features that
other vendors charge you an arm and a leg for? Let's start with the
The Enhanced ECWCS Fleece Jacket/liner is made 100 % "Super-Deluxe"
polyester micro-fleece and is super comfortable to wear (*yeah, I have
one and they're pretty bitchen...). When we field tested this particular
jacket, it was an instant favorite simply due to the comfort in wear.
As the name indicates, it's designed as part of the ECWCS (Extreme
Cold Weather Clothing System) and is designed to zip into the GEN I
ECWCS Parka, but works great by itself.
Nylon abrasion reinforcements adorn the upper chest, upper back,
neck and elbows increasing the jacket's durability and longevity.
A full two way zipper from waist to neck keeps you warm, but allows
access to items around your waist without exposing your upper torso.
Ok, there are 6 pockets with 7 zippered access points:
- two bottom side slash pockets with zipper,
- two sleeve/shoulder pockets that one can sew the provided hook
patches onto for Velcro based identifier or morale patches onto,
- two zippered chest pockets located near the center zipper line
for easy access across your body.
Now I said 7 access points: the two chest pockets are accessible from
the inside and the mesh are held closed by Velcro.
|As for the sleeves, there are two (one on each side) ventilation
zippers under each arm which really act quickly to cool you down when
Each sleeve has a two inch extendible sleeve with thumb sleeve with thumb-hole
that's actually engineered to be comfortable and assist in the donning
of the jacket, especially when it's worn in conjunction with the Parka.
Each cuff has an adjustable Velcro tabs for the perfect fit.
The waist of the jacket has an elastic corded waist
with dual (one on each side) quick-locks for individual fit.
Not only is this mid-weight Micro Fleece
Jacket/Liner a great stand alone jacket, the fact that it's designed to enhance the
temperature rating of the Enhanced ECWCS Gen I Parka makes this
jacket/liner not only durable, it's valuable.
Did I mention the price point on this jacket? You can find
other jackets with less features for more. This jacket is a great buy
and it can integrate into a parka and give you increased protection and
warmth from the elements. How many jackets can do that?
