Our take on the classic British Windproof Smock with improvements and civilian-friendly colours. If you're tired of sweating in 'tex clothing but want some protection from showers, you'd do well to give this a try.

It should be common knowledge by now that a more versatile outdoor jacket than the Windproof Smock doesn't exist. It breathes better than any plastic shell jackets with membrane, is more resistant to wear and still offers a significant level of protection from rain. It can be worn over a base layer during mobile activity in cool weather, or packed with insulating mid-layers for keeping warm during breaks.

Features

Nice details already seen in the previous model:

  • DWR coated for better water resistance
  • Softshell fabric added to the handwarmer pockets
  • The colour is now traditional olive drab shade, with black details

General features:

  • Generous cut for ease of movement and adding mid-layers
  • Long hem to cover your seat
  • YKK zipper front closure with storm flap
  • All buttons are large enough to be used with gloves on
  • Generous hood with drawcord tightening and size adjustment
  • Hood can be rolled and secured into a collar with cord and button
  • Cuff adjustment tab with velcro

Pockets:

  • Measurements apply to Medium size. Pockets grow with jacket size
  • Four pockets on the front with large buttons and a folding mouth
  • Chest pockets: 16 x 20 x 2.5 cm, bulge up to a combined 3 litres
  • Lower pockets: 19 x 21 x 2.5 cm, bulge up to a combined 4 litres
  • Fleece & softshell lined hand warmer pockets
  • Hidden pockets with zipper closure behind the chest pockets, bulge out to a combined 6 litres!
  • Flat sleeve pockets on both sleeves

Material and care

65/35% polycotton. Wash in 40 degrees Celsius. DWR coated for better water resistance

Using Greenland Wax or a spray-on treatment helps improve water repellency for wet weather.

I have the old version. This is probably better.

The old one is great. Mine has kept me from nasty weather. Looks good, functions well. It's better than the "real" one I was issued in many respects, only downside is it might not be as tough. But then its an awesome price.

Basically, very similar to the standard s95 smocks, lighter in weight with more refinements. Fits my needs well.

So I got this smock after a long an exhausting search for a civil but still to the dpm windproof smock compareable jacket for a reasonable pricing. The main use for the smock is as a 3-seasons hunting jacket and as a outdoor jacket which doesnt looks super stupid when you wear it sometimes on the streets. I do have the dpm smock and the german army issued KSK smock from a friend for direct comparison.

What did I expect from the jacket? Being a solid and silent smock where I can carry enough stuff in to spare a daypack outdoor and which keeps me dry in light till medium rain and also protects me from wind.

Did I got that? Yes I did... to 90%... The fabric of the smock is solid, still its thinner then the issued jackets, which makes also a bit lighter. The quality of the sewing is good.
Does it keep me warm? Depends on what you wear underneath. You can go with the smock and a shirt alone in a range from 10 to 20 degree celsisus depending on the amount of movement you do. The smock is definitly not a standalone winter or all weather jacket. In combination with a solid fleece jacket ect. you can go for 2-3 hours of stationary animal observation during 0 to 5 degrees. Ain't no problem. All smocks are "just" outerlayers. But I have the subjectiv feeling that the issued smocks do keep me warmer.

Is it silent? Thats a very important factor when you look for a hunting jacket. Right out of the box... its not. The zippers are making alot noises during every movement and there are alot of zippers on this jacket. Especially the main zipper is loud. With ductape and changing the free hanging metall part to paracord I solved that problem in like 20min. Also it has alot of valcro areas which produce noices and are likely to collect stuff in the forest. I removed the most of them. Not a big deal but not nice aswell.
Can I carry alot of stuff?Well, what did I want to fit in that jacket for hunting? First-Aid-Kit, knife, dragstrap, some food, hygiene stuff, ammo, gloves, something to read, flashlight, rain-poncho, some water (250-500ml). I can fit all this in the smock, but I wont have an easy excess to it. The british smock has the same amount of pockets and so thats not a really minus-point. The german KSK-smock has like 3 Pockets more around the waist and on the backside. It was once made that the soldier doesnt have to wear a webbing anymore but still has all it needs to survive with him.

Does it keep me dry? Out of the box in light rain yes... But for everything else you definitly should do something to make it more water-resistent. Even more when you plan to wear it underneath a big backpack for some travel or to face bigger amounts of snow. I waxed the jacket and even under shower-like rain it then keeps you dry, even with a backpack on. For everything else you defenitly need a poncho or better a real shelter but no outdoor-jacket beneath 400,- protects you from such a amount of water. I still have the feeling that the issued stuff does keep more water away, probably bc it has been already impregnated from someone before.

All in all you get a nice jacket for a damn good price. The service of this website is great and the shipping to Germany was no problem at all. You really get a great basic jacket for your money. If you search for other smocks which arent camoflage you always have to pay like the double if you dont want to have china-crap. If you want to get more out of it then you have to invest some work by yourself. I hope that I could help you with my review.

Cheers

I picked up a used British smock in MTP and used it for about a week before I grew tired of the looks I'd get for wearing camo, so I looked for an alternative. I have always liked Varusteleka so I figured that I'd give this one a try.

It is very well made. The velcro is good, the fabric feels good, there are no loose threads, the buttons feel good. The fit is absolutely prefect. I like the fact that they used elastic instead of string in the waist adjustment. It is windoroof and water resistant, as advertised.Overall, it is very similar to the British smock; this is not their "impression" of one, this is absolutely an improvement, with the original concept in mind.

However, I have noticed that everythibg is just a little bit smaller; the pockets are just a small amount smaller and the hood is a bit smaller than the British version. The material is just a bit lighter in weight as well.

Overall, I am very happy with this item and am glad that I bought it.

Toimii.

Nappien sinertävä sävy hämäsi aluksi, mutta se häipyi käytössä. Ilmeisesti jotain kankaan käsittelyyn tarkoitettua ainetta, jota jäi nappien pinnalle samanlaiseksi puuteriksi kuin mustikan pinnalla.

Kynän paikkaa jäin kaipaamaan, mutta ei tuo pisteitä vähennä.

Kainalovetskareita en kaipaa. Onneksi ne pitävät tuulta, ja pysyvät kiinni.

Kaksinkerroin taittuvat taskunsuut ovat hyvät, jahka niihin tottuu.

Hyvä, kun Windproof Smockia ja muitakin vaatteita on yksivärisenä. En viitsi ihmisten ilmoilla pitää useampaa kuin yhtä maastokuvioitua vaatekappaletta, ettei luulla erä- tai militaaripelleksi. Retkeily ja -kuilu on toinen juttu.

Mustat yksityiskohdat näyttävät vaivaavan joitakuita. Minusta täysin 1-värinen vaate on vähän tylsä.
