The FIELD JACKET is the newest offering from Shadow Strategic; The innovative features of this Smock make it perfect for military, special forces, security, hunters, fishermen, tourists and lovers of real field gear. The Military Smock (also commonly known as the SAS Smock) has been used by the British Forces, and internationally, for many years. The Spartan Smock is built on the back of this tradition and is sure to help it keep going for many a year still.
Made of cotton/synthetic blend twill fabrics treated with water repellents. This combination of cotton and synthetic gives the fabric breathability, strength, and abrasion resistance with an interior breathable Reissa Waterproof lining to protect you from the elements; Good for pretty much all-year round use, apart from during the hotter Summer months.
The athletic cut and gusseted arms ensure total freedom of movement, meaning that it can even be worn below Plate Carriers or Chest Rigs and allows for a natural transition to any shooting stance. The Storm Collar, Waterproof Hood and Velcro Cuffs go a long way in helping improve both the thermal and waterproof performance.
Highly practical 15-Pocket Layout provides plenty of space to carry all you need; The varying sizes of the pockets ensures that everything has an ideal home and offers quick easy access to vital equipment. On the front of the Smock you have the four standard Cargo Pockets present on all good SAS Smocks, but on the Spartan Smock you have the addition of a zippered pocket built onto the side of each of these pockets. The lower zippered pockets are perfectly positioned to be used as Hand Pockets like in most modern Tactical Jackets but can also provide secure storage space that can be relied on.
And that is not the only improvement that RedBack have made to the Cargo Pockets, the addition of Storm Flaps at the opening of the pockets provides additional protection from the rain and ensures the contents stay as dry as possible. All these add up to a total of 8 separate pockets on the front.
Located on each arm are RedBack’s exclusive 3-in-1 Admin Pockets; With one larger pocket located below the easily opened flap, one smaller & thin pocket located behind the larger Velcro panel and to finish it off a concealed zippered pocket built into the back. These Admin Pockets provide excellent access to notebooks or other high use equipment required close at hand; Symmetrical design for ambidextrous use.
