In 1955, the Soviet Union met with seven satellite states to sign the Warsaw Pact, officially known as the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation, and Mutual Assistance.

Soon after, the Czechoslovak People’s Army were quick to mutually assist themselves to their allies’ combat gear. The following years earned them a reputation for adopting, cloning, and modifying soviet bloc gadgets, clothing, and camo patterns — each piece tweaked to suit Czech sensibilities. In short, the USSR let young Czechoslovakia borrow the family Honda, and a new suspension, grill, and racing spoiler were installed moments later.

This camo pattern traces back to German splinter pattern (Splittermuster) and marsh pattern (Sumpfmuster) designs from World War II. These inspired Poland’s wz58 Deszczyk (“raindrop”), the first “rain pattern” camo. The Warsaw Pact allowed other nations to co-opt this design, leading to the East German Strichtarn and the Czech Jehlici/Oblaky pattern (“needles” and “clouds” respectively).

The Czech design widened the lines of the pattern from their narrower origins but kept and expanded the practice of dappling beneath the camo with water-stains. Issued from 1963 through the 80s, later versions saw this unique mottling fade in prominence, while light and dark grey color variants were common throughout. The design proved to have a unique edge against night vision — the water stains disguised the pattern by appearing over it, transforming it into an alt-terrain camo resembling World War II Leibermuster (a design that infamously inspired the Swiss TAZ 83, soon dubbed the “pizza camouflage”).

Specs

  • Authentic Czechoslovakian Cold War surplus
  • Czech-modified rain pattern (Jehlici/Oblaky)
  • Thick cotton polyester twill
  • Five pockets
    • Three interior (right hip, left hip, and breast)
    • Two exterior (breast and back)
  • Waist cinch cord

Condition

Before use, wash with cold water and a non-bleach formula.

As authentic Cold War surplus, some dirt and other signs of long-term storage may be noticeable on arrival. These should disappear in the wash. Jackets are in great condition with no tears or stains, and minimal fading.

Very Warm

I got it as a birthday gift for someone I know, knowing they would appreciate the number of pockets it has. It retains heat very well, which will come in handy this winter, but may be a slight issue if you want a year-round jacket. I would recommend getting a size above as it does run on the slightly smaller side.

Great field shirt for chilly weather

Been eyeing this one for a while and finally decided I could set aside the cash for it. The raindrop camo is more understated than most of my collection, but still looks awesome. And it combines well with my hat and boots!

I imagined it would be more like a field shirt than a jacket, since it looked lighter in the photos, but I'd say it wears more like a Bundeswehr parka, only without the hood. Better for weather that's a little bit chilly. I'll probably still default to my Tropentarn shirt or USAF BDU shirt in the summer.

I'll have to get used to the unusual pocket arrangement (I tend to use the right breast pocket a lot, so having it be inside rather than outside is a bit strange to me) but that's not a problem, just something to get used to.

All in all, great purchase. I'm wearing it right now and I think I can't take it off!

P o c k e t s

It's thick (don't wear it in summer), it's stylish (hide from your enemies), and it's got some big beefy pockets. I used to need to carry around a bag when I go out of town. Now I just wear this. It's tight.

Ivan's fantastic field jacket

If theres one thing we know about the czechs, it's that they are cold and unfriendly. Now this may not be true, but if it is this strichtarn style jacket is perfect. The Czechs always take something and make it better. 100% boog ready if you live somewhere rainy

Very well made

Shows signs of use but I don't think any country could have made these any better.
