British CS95 Windproof Smock, MTP, surplus
One of the best field jackets ever made, the British Windproof Smock is famous for its versatility and thoroughly great design. A perfect jacket for round-the-year use. These are early Multi Terrain Pattern smocks, the cut is the old CS95 style, but with the new camo print.
Originally designed in the 70's, this jacket was used in windy and cold conditions as the top layer. This is an unlined, practical field jacket with a spacious cut. Zipper closure, and six pockets: two large pockets in the hem, two on the chest and two with zipper closure. Some jackets have a small pocket on the sleeve. Drawcords on the hem and waist.
The fabric is very tightly woven polycotton with a water repellent treatment, which of course will wear out with time. It can be revitalised with suitable solutions.
We have listed user's recommended measurements: first up is user height, then chest circumference.
Pristine, couldn't be better. These came to us in factory plastic wraps. If your jacket isn't in one, it's probably just tried on.
Made by Cooneen Watts & Stone Ltd. in the UK.
A bit of history
Ever since the Second World War the Brits have issued and used a selection of jackets that have been called smocks, starting with the legendary Denison Smock of the paratroopers. In general the smocks have been designed with a loose cut with pockets that allow to carry items without wearing actual load-bearing webbing.
The first Windproof Smocks of the 40's were anorak style jackets and their greatest benefit compared to other options of the time was the luxurious carry capacity of four pockets. The Combat Soldier 95 is the successor to special forces Arctic Windproof Smock, which saw some action in the Falklands.
The Windproof Smock is one of the most beloved pieces of kit issued in the British armed forces, and quite often bought by those who aren't lucky enough to be issued one by The Queen.

Takista sen verran jotta lie siirtomaaherroilla slightly kaposemmat hartiat kuin metsien skandeilla, eli ainut kevyesti ahdistava seikka oli hartialeikkaus. Käytössä takki on muotoutunut istuvammaksi. Taskutilaa ei mainosteta suotta. Pieni repullinen tavaraa kulkee rinnuksilla sekä reisillä. Prkleen kestävä pukine.
Merinoalusasun kanssa pärjää pikkutuulessa mainiosti kersoja ulkoiluttaessa. Risman tädit tykkää kun nämä päällä käy makkarapaketin hakemassa.
