A high quality surplus rain jacket with the British DPM camo pattern. Waterproof and breathable, as they say, at least better than 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.
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.
Sizes in the British system: first user's recommended height, then chest circumference in centimetres. The cut is roomy, because these are meant to be worn over everything else.
In used but perfectly serviceable condition.
