This is the jacket of the current issue German Bundeswehr rainsuit. Very simple and sensible hardshell overgarment to wear when it's wet and nasty.

All in all a very simple "GTX" jacket with a couple of handy features for use in the field:

  • Zipper and snap closure on the front.
  • A large, adjustable hood.
  • Drawcord adjustment at the hem.
  • Hook 'n' loop sleeve cuff adjustment.
  • Two hem pockets.
  • Generous cut to fit over all other clothing.

Waterproof membrane

Made of Gore-Tex or Sympatex, this membrane "breathes"; it lets moisture out, keeping the wearer dry. Microscopic holes in the membrane let water vapour pass through, but are too small for liquid water to do the same (although in the case of Sympatex the mechanism is somewhat different). However, no rainsuit breathes as well as regular non-rainwear. For this reason they're still best reserved for wet and nasty weather or blocking the wind in light activity.

On the very top there is (or has been) a DWR coating with a job of blocking most of the water before it even touches the membrane.

Size info

First the German size, then these converted to comparable easy size and user's recommended chest in centimetres. As these is meant to be worn over everything else, they are sized accordingly - by picking your own size you should have plenty of room for extra clothing.

The length sizes are all the same, and are good for "normal" people (about 170-180 cm), but this leaves some room to play; if you're over 180 cm tall, you can get more sleeve length by sizing one notch up.

Genuine BW issue

In used but perfectly serviceable condition. The DWR coating on the top of the fabric may have faded with time, but it can be revived with standard wet blocking sprays.

Amazing rain gear, showed up folded crisp with the tags still on, fits amazing. Happy to have some nice rain gear for hunting or just fixing stuff around the property.

Excellent Goretex raingear for a absurd price. Love it. Mine has a small repair on the right elbow but that just ads to the originality.

The one I received looks to be unissued (or at least only lightly used) and is from 1995. Can't wait to try it out in the rainy season here in Vancouver.

EDIT: It kept me dry during a rainy hike, though the DWR repellent is gone. It'll need reproofing due to its age.

Fantastic quality. And the saving are rediculous compared to anything else Ive looked for.

The arms are a little short like most bw stuff. Still worth it though

Ostin tämän sadetakin ja housut tästä mestasta ja paketti tuli kuin ammusjuna perille, tarkistin tavaran ja priimaksi totesin. Heitin kledjut ylle ja syöksyin sienimetsälle vesisateeseen. Ukko pysyi kuivana ja näiden kanssa oli helppo hyppiä mättäillä eikä tullut sitä märkää ahdistavaa oloa joka tavallisessa sadevermeessä tulee, nää oikeesti toimii, pitää kuivana ja on mukavat.
