Genuine issue British MVP rain jacket with a Desert DPM pattern - unissued, most in factory wrappings MVP is the British equivalent to Gore-Tex and other waterproof membranes. These jackets are waterproof but breathe a bit, unlike old rubber "crisp packet" suits.

The British army rain jacket is very simple: a long hem and generous hood, fast front closure with a zipper and folding stormflap + velcro. Because there's no liner, this packs fairly small, but it's no fist-sized ultralight jacket that breaks as soon as you hit the deck. If you are after a low-cost durable no-nonsense GTX jacket, this is the ticket. No big loss if it gets damaged, this is a BIG plus in surplus. Of course being army issue stuff this thing is pretty durable to begin with.

No extra on this - it's just a protective shell with a hood. The simplicity has an added benefit: the jacket packs very small. An old British army trick is to wear this under the combat smock to retain the ability to use pockets and to protect the MVP jacket from wear and tear. A regular combat jacket is more stealthy, too.

A note about the membrane. While it's true the MVP (Moisture Vapour Permeable) membrane lets some moisture out just like Gore-Tex, it's not a magic do-it-all fabric. It's best used as rainwear, or as a windproof layer in stationary use. In heavy activity you will likely get wet from the inside.

Care

Please note that clothes with a membrane require care to retain their waterproof properties. Washing should be done in lukewarm water, by hand with a special detergent. Periodic waterproofing treatment is recommended by washing in, spraying on, or both.

Size

Easy size first, British size in the brackets: first user's height, then chest circumference in centimetres. The cut is roomy, because these are meant to be worn over everything.

Condition

Unissued, most still in factory plastics. If not, they have just been tried on.

Hyvä! Skootteroidessa pysyy sateelta kuivana kun on myös saman sarjan housut jalassa. Kuvio on aika hyvä , ainoastaan yksi pikkupoika kyseli kaupassa, että olisinko sotilas.. " en, vaan puutarhuri" . Ja tosiaan aavikkocamo soveltuu hyvin katukuvaankin, ainakin täällä maaseudulla.
Aavikolla harvemmin sataa , joten varsin iskemättömässä kunnossa sain omani.

Erinomainen setti myöskin pyöräillessä, ja kuten aiemmin sanottua, aavikkocamo ei pistä niin paljoa silmään katukuvassa. Plussana mainittakoon, että fillarikypärä mahtuu helposti hupun alle. 5/5

Mainio takki❤️. Toimii myös pyöräillessä rankassa sateessa ja tuulessa. Väljä joten alle mahtuu ja rintataskut on näppärät. Kepittää kyllä mennen tullen entisen kuoritakin. Olen tyytyväinen. Marjaana K.

Takki nyt ollut hetken testissä ja ei voi kun suositella! Tuli itse tilattua ehkä kokoa liian iso, mutta ei haittaa. Mahtuupahan talvenpäälle kampettakin reippaasti alle. Pyöräillessä aivan mainio takki ja takki istuu hyvin kaupunkiympäristöön.

Todellakin ollut tyytyväinen jo pari vuotta. Kävin myymälässä ja myyjä suositteli omastasta kokemuksestaan, että silloin kun sadehuosuja tarvitsee niin silloin ne ptää saada nopeasti kaiken muun päälle. Itse ostanut just päälle sopivat. Kiitti vinkistä ;) Pohjoisen kalareissuilla asu on tominut tosi hyvin!

Pari vuotta olen odotellut, että kohdalleni osuu sopivan kokoinen takki.
Takki on hvyin tehty ja suunniteltu. Pitkä malli suojaa kivasti sateelta ja tuulelta niin eräillessä kuin pyöräillessä. Kaksimielinen vetoketjukin löytyy. Suosittelen takin ostamista niin eräilyy kuin arkikäyttöön. Gortexit sun muut vastaavat takit ovat erittäin kalliita, joten tällä takilla saa tuplattua mukavuuden huonossa kelissa ja säästettyä pitkän pennin. Siis sentin.
