You'll be comfy and warm like a bear sleeping over the winter in this jacket. These first-generation ECWCS fleece jackets are called "Bear Jackets" in the US armed forces. We have no idea how the nickname came to be.

You'll be comfy and warm like a bear sleeping over the winter in this jacket. These first-generation ECWCS fleece jackets are called "Bear Jackets" in the US armed forces. We have no idea how the nickname came to be.

ECWCS is pronounced eek-wax and stands for Extended Cold Weather Clothing System. It was developed by the US Army in the 1980s as an ensemble of accessories and clothes to use in conjunction as layers to improve combat efficiency in any weather, particularly cold and wet or freezing.

The jacket extends to the groin and has a zipper front that goes all the way up the collar. There are two chest pockets with flaps and two hand-warming pockets below.

To tease people into hugging you, wear the jacket inside out: the inside is very fuzzy while the outside is flat. It's all polyester, as usual for fleece garments. The shoulders, elbows, and cuffs have reinforcement patches which are most often black, sometimes brown. Another thing you will only see through sheer luck is a drawcord at the hem.

Size info

The sizing is simple like T-shirts. The sleeves will be a bit long for short people or short for tall folks. Your shell jacket should have the correct sleeve length for you so the insulation at the cuff is less relevant. These are not loose-fitting like overcoats, the intention is to wear just a base layer and maybe an additional thin thermal layer underneath.

US surplus

These are in a good condition, although used. You can tell immediately, as the outside pills very easily and it's prominent as you can see in the pictures. You can use an electric fuzz blaster or a wool comb to clean up the appearance. There will be more pilling through use, but at least then it's all your own!

I have one of these (purchased elsewhere) and I have to say that this on top of a flannel/work shirt or sweater is perfect for cold weather (at or below freezing especially). It is comfortable, albeit slightly itchy, virtually windproof, and most importantly WARM. Get it. Don't second guess yourself, don't overthink it. If you want a comfortable, functional piece of warm clothing to keep you from having to thaw out later, just get this damn thing.

I bought mine years ago. It's not made from polartec-style fleece, but seriously old-skool 1980s Fibre-pile. Therefore it's not for go-lite freaks, 'coz it's big and bulky, but a lot warmer as a result. It goes really well with the old GI-Joe 5-button sweater, various surplus roll-neck shirts etc.
From the days of Desert Storm, military mustaches, and when the good guys used to win wars to the benefit of the Free World.

Suomen olosuhteisiin suorastaan ylilämmin, ei ole montaa talvea ollut jolloin tätä on päässyt käyttämään ainakaan eteläisessä Suomessa. Bulkkia löytyy, joten vaatii päällimmäiseksi aika tilavan takin, mutta esim. oman koon mukaan valittu brittien Windproof Smock toimii aika hyvin.

Koot pienehköjä. Olen 112 cm rintamuksen omaava, kohtuu harteikas, 173 cm pitkä/lyhyt ja X-large on minulle juuri sopiva koko. Pidemmillä tyypeillä takin kokonaismitat (hihat, helma) jäänevät vähän lyhyiksi. Näyttävät huonoilta, mutta nukanpoistokoneella töitä vajaa tunti ja takista tuli oikein hyvä, parempi kuin Varustelekan kuvien vertailukuvassa nukkakamman jälkeen. Peruskunto siis ok. Jos tykkäät vanhan ajan meiningistä, tämä takki on mukava lisä valikoimaasi. Jos olisin saanut takin ruskeilla vahvikkeilla, antaisin 5 tähteä, pitää sitä miehen nyt jostakin mököttää.

C’mon Wooly bears have been the nick name for Helly Hansen type thermal heavy trousers and coats for coastal dive harvesting and Naval divers. Canuck Navy anyways! Cheers.
