Hugely popular in Russia among all kinds of outdoor types, not just military, the Gorka should serve those well who are looking a simple, robust garment for field use.

  • 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.
  • Five pockets, two on the hem, two on the sleeves and one inside pocket.
  • Roomy hood with well adjustable tightening cords.
  • All in all there isn't a thing you couldn't repair if you own buttons, a needle and thread!

Materials

The Gorka is made from a base layer of cotton, in the style of the old Plash Palatka rain capes. 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. The Tactic-9 Gorka is not as windproof as many others thanks to the slightly less densely woven fabric, but does breathe better, making it more appropriate for warm weather use.

All hard wearing areas are reinforced with a strong polycotton blend, either ripstop reinforced or not, this varies from one pair to the other.

Not lined in any way, which makes the suit wearable both in the summer and winter. It's recommended to wear appropriate layered clothing or a field uniform underneath.

Sizing

First the traditional Russian size, then the same converted to centimetres - recommended height and chest circumference. The cut is generous both length and widthwise, so don't sweat it when picking sizes. A size 50 (Medium) person should do well with anything from 48 to 52.

Our model is 175 cm tall with a chest circumference of 98 cm and wears size 48-4 (176 / 96) garment. There's plenty of room for warm stuff underneath.

All Russian made

These are made by the Russian company Tactic-9, the same manufacturer who does all the Jagel camo stuff we sold. These are made in Russia.

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.

Nice lightweight Gorka jacket. Picked the 50-3 size - fits over a fleece and smock combo (UK 170-104 size) without binding, and not overly baggy when worn by itself.
It has good front pockets, but the sleeve pockets sit on the bicep more than the side of the arm and can interfere with simple arm motion when reasonably filled (wallet, cellphone).

Looks good and is "old clothes" comfortable. But, buy this a bit bigger than you need because it is made of light canvas and will shrink when washed, even if you use cool water. Mine is now a little too tight when a fleece is worn under it.
