Dutch Softie Jacket, Olive Drab / Coyote Tan, surplus
A wonderfully packable and reversible soft insulated jacket with a bit more sturdy fabrics than usual. Near-new condition surplus from The Netherlands!
- Packable and warm
- Durable materials
- Reversible design
The shoulders and sleeves have mild reinforcements, so the jacket remains very comfortable and light, yet strong enough to be used casually as-is.The collar and hem have adjustable elastics for thermal regulation. The cuffs have a simple elastics.
Zippered front pockets and chest rank tabs on both sides. You'll find a storm flap on the outside and wind guard on the inside no matter which way around you use the jacket. Magic! The zipper is right-handed (US type) when worn normally OD outside. If you prefer a left-handed zipper (more common in Europe), simply wear the jacket Coyote-side out. A handy bag is included for packing.
Very easy size system: just pick your "T-shirt size" and you'll be fine. The sizes taper up a bit, so no need to size up if you have a bit of a belly. If you pick a smaller size, the shoulders will bind and the collar will be tight.

Second: I'm pretty sure this is a Snugpack Sleeka Elite jacket, in some Dutch military version. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
It's light, warm and compressible. Mine also arrived brand new. Its excellent as a liner jacket under a smock, and good as a top layer although I prefer jackets with more pockets.
Very nice, but order above your usual size if you want a roomy chest.
