Gorka K2 Black Jacket [Ready to Ship]

Issued widely for decades, the Gorka (Горка) or "little mountain" is a favorite among Russian and ex-Soviet bloc forces. It is a tough three season suit which excels at shrugging off heavy use and rough conditions. Over the last three years, we've worked to bring the Gorka into the 21st century—resulting in two distinct lines of mountain suit. Originally designed for Russia's mountain troops, the Gorka concept spread rapidly. Its full coverage, generous cut, and high mobility won it quick and lasting adoption around the world. However, like many pieces of Russian military technology the Gorka had a neglect problem.

After its introduction in the Soviet-Afghan war, the Gorka was never substantially modernized. Over the years Russian manufacturers made minor tweaks and updated camouflages, but the core design of the Gorka was left unchanged. 40 years is a long time in military technology, so in 2018 we introduced a suite of upgrades we called the "Gorka K."

The first K Gorka—the K1—addressed a ton of problems with the old Gorka design. However we quickly ran into a dilemma; improving the Gorka further depended on your definition of "improvement." Our team quickly formed into two separate camps: Gorka traditionalists who wanted to improve the fit and function of the Gorka, but not disrupt it's Russian blood. And Gorka modernists who wanted a more Western approach to camouflage, ergonomics and functionality.

While several ergonomic and functional improvements are shared across the K2 and M1 Gorkas, this genetic split has allowed us to take them in separate directions. The K2 features Russian camouflage, Russian pocketing, and a simpler design with less moving parts. By contrast, the M1 has been designed to work better with Western plate carrier systems, and has PCU style armpit zippers, bicep pockets, and a hearty dose of Russian 'Reindeer Moss' camouflage.

 

 

Trim and Tight

Both our M and K series Gorkas feature integrated gaiters and blousing bands. Just pull them on—no snagging, no debris, perfect fit.



First Line, Everytime

Now compatible with modern combat belts thanks to a modified rise and reinforced belt line. Don't worry though, the suspenders still work.


Blowout Proof

A generous crotch gusset ensures complete freedom of movement. Squat to your hearts content, your pants will be fine.


Detail Oriented

The little things add up. We used high quality trim and incorporated tons of small ergonomic improvements throughout the M1 and K2.


Owl Neck Hood

Fully articulated hood delivers 180 degrees of unrestricted movement. Move naturally and it comes with you.


M1 Specific Enhancements

A reconfigured front closure makes the M series Gorka more comfortable with Western armor carriers. This is complemented by PCU style bicep pockets, armpit zips for comfort, and green reinforcement panels.

Fit pretty good

It really does feel like wearing a tent, but it also fits relatively well. It's okay at blocking out the cold, but you do need to wear a sweater if it's snowing. The material is surprisingly thin, but it does seem fairly durable.
