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. We sell the trousers and jackets separately. Here's the jacket. These Tactic-9 made brown Gorkas are made of a bit lighter fabric than most others, resulting in a very summery feel.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
