The loose fitting Gorkas are a commonly used by Russia's more elite fighting units. These are not made for the parade grounds, but developed to be purely practical. This camouflaged version is almost about the perfect field uniform one can think of. This is the jacket.

  • Roomy cut for unrestrained movement & extra clothing.
  • Materials used are cotton, nylon and a mix of both.
  • Buttons up at the front, a storm flap on the inside offers extra protection when needed.
  • Pockets, wrists and elbows are reinforced with an extra layer of a hard wearing nylon blend.
  • Elastics on the sides and wrists. These are curiously left a bit loose, but if you know how to use a needle & thread, they can be quickly remedied.
  • Five pockets: two on the hem, two on the sleeves and two inside pockets.
  • Roomy hood with well adjustable tightening cords.

Materials

The Gorka is made from a base layer of cotton, ripstop-reinforced in this case. The Gorka is water repellent to some extent when new, but not a straightforward rubbery rain suit, thus it breathes well. Still, do not treat this as a waterproof garment - it isn't one.

All hard wearing areas are reinforced with a strong polycotton blend, curiously olive drab in colour.

This suit is meant to protect the wearer from wind and weather, it's not lined in any way which makes it wearable both in the summer and winter. It's recommended to wear appropriate layered clothing or a field uniform underneath.

Russian quality: Made first and foremost for actual field use. That's why the finish is, compared to many Western products, a bit rough: the camo might have slight misprinting, they definitely haven't counted the stitches and the colours may fade pretty quickly in modern violent washing (which people do too much anyway). However the basic form & function is is solid, and if something breaks, it's often easily repaired with a needle and some thread.

If you have to wash this, do it in 40 degrees Celsius - cotton and nylon don't mind, but the camo will gradually fade in repeated washings.

Sizing

First the traditional Russian size, then the same converted to centimetres - length and chest circumference. The cut is generous, so don't sweat it when picking sizes. For example, a size Medium person would probably do just fine with anything from 48 to 52. Our model is size 175 / 95 cm and wears size 48-4 (176 / 96 cm).

Russian made

Made by Tactic-9. Russian companies typically make their stuff in Russia, not China. These are not "pretty", but completely fit for purpose.

Availability

Availability is a bit unpredictable - we can't give any estimates of restock. Likewise, no idea about the sizes we get. What we do know is that the amounts are small.
