Austrian field jacket w. membrane, ECWCS model, surplus
Austrian Bundesheer Gore-Tex jacket. Cut very much like the US ECWCS jacket (that's why the name), and likewise is waterproof. Used military surplus of the finest kind!
- Unlined, waterproof shell jacket
- Strong, heavy duty materials
- Modern army surplus
- Generous cut - if you're not going to wear another jacket under this, one size smaller than recommended might work too.
For those not keen on camouflage, the Austrian Bundesheer surplus should fit the bill. Overall very functional, calm and collected, it will perform its job and nothing more, nothing less.
This is just an unlined waterproof shell jacket and meant to be worn over everything else. This is certainly a good thing; it's left up to the user to layer the clothing worn underneath, so this jacket is something you want to keep in the pack summer or winter.
Zipper & hook-n-loop closure on the front, two front pockets, two hidden breast pockets and a good hood. The Gore-Tex membrane is squeezed between two outer layers.
These usually have a velcro name tag base on the chest and Bundesheer logo on the arm, or traces of one.
The composition of the outer fabric varies, it can be either 50/50% polycotton, 65/35% polycotton or 100% polyester. The membrane is either Gore-Tex or Sympatex, these are essentially the same. 100% polyester lining.
First the easy size, then the user's recommended height and chest circumference in centimetres. These are a tad oversized to accommodate stuff underneath.
The Austrian size system is explained in detail on our Austrian jacket size chart page. If you are already familiar with Austrian sizing and want to know how we came up with the easy sizes, below is our logic as a chart. All possible sizes in the chart are not manufactured of course.

Austrian army surplus
In used but serviceable condition and repaired when necessary. Although we can't give any 105 % waterproofness guarantees in diving conditions for used membrane rainwear, these should do just fine.

does not recommend

Omat mitat 178/82: rinnanympärys 104cm. Medium long juurikin sopiva, jää alle tilaa fleecelle tms. Itävaltalaiset kamppeet kannattaa ottaa long-koossa jos on pitkäraajainen, regularissa on liian lyhyet hihat/lahkeet.

The sleeve cuff was also torn off from one of the arms.
Would definitely recommend to get the Austrian field jacket w. membrane instead.
A lot better jacket for the same money.

The only issue (not really an issue just irritating) person who sewed the name tag velcro on it must have been really fisheyed or drunk... probably both... It starts straight then takes of like a rocket almost pointing to my shoulder and i can´t do anything about it without having to repair and re-do all the seam sealing for awsome waterproofness aka im just lazy.
