This is the Austrian Gore-Tex Hardshell — Built for the harshest heights of the alps, and torrential downpour in the Jungle. This is the shell everyone at KommandoStore has in their trunk.

Designed and produced under contract by a high-end Austrian ski-wear company, This is about as nice as it gets short of an Arc'Teryx LEAF Alpha Jacket (but we'd be sued into the ground if we told you that this is nearly the same thing for nearly 90% off. Which it totally isn't. We'd never say that.) 

Featuring a PTFE Gore-Tex membrane, it keeps everything inside it perfectly dry for an extended period of time. Unlike a windproof jacket, the membrane doesn't "soak through" when it comes in contact with moisture of any kind, be it rain or snow (which the Austrians see quite a bit of). 

The tuckable hood is extra large to accommodate helmets, and features a tidy shock cord arrangement that doesn't dangle or get caught up & snag on all the rest of your gear. It also has a shock-cord adjustable crown for properly fitting to heads & helmets large and small.

The 'napoleon' chest pockets are extremely large, making it an EDC machine. Phone, wallet, keys, and also large enough to comfortably hold another piece of Austrian engineering without any majorly suspicious shapes bulging out.


Specs

  • Outer Shell: 100% Polyamid
  • Membrane: 100% PTFE Gore-Tex
  • Inner Lining: 100% Polyamid
  • Zipper-secured closure with double-panel hook and loop storm flap
  • Two low-profile vertical zippered Napoleon pockets
  • Two low-profile hook and loop hand pockets
  • Internal elastic buckle-adjusted cinch cords at hips and waist
  • Hook and loop patches for nametape and shoulder patches
  • Brimmed hood can be rolled inward, held in place by snaps for storage
  • Adjustable hood drawstrings held in place with loops right under the collar. No more drawstrings flying into your face
  • Some may have waterproof zippered underarm vents

Very good condition

This was in better condition than the photos suggested. It fits well and I was a little disappointed when it didn't rain last weekend.

Perfect Multi Use Jacket

I love this thing. It has hella pockets to bring whatever snacks I want to the movie theater, it's completely waterproof and packs down small. Couldn't ask for anything better, especially for the price.

My new favorite: milsurp that doesn't stand out as milsurp

After a year of having this parka and a winter of wearing it, I love this thing. I live in the mid-atlantic, so winter fluctuates between pretty darn cold, to a lot of near-freezing wet and messy, with some nicer, warmer days sprinkled in. In this climate, this parka is my go-to 3-season coat. It's very good at keeping rain out, and the hood is great in the wind or rain. When it gets around or below freezing, I add an insulated vest underneath this parka, and I'm all set. If I lived somewhere like MN or the Dakotas, I would find a good liner to add some insulation. If you buy this at your actual size, there is some room to add an insulation layer without needing to size up.

The pockets are outstanding. Designed for battle accoutrements, you will love these pockets even if you're a suburban wagie that just needs a good, secure pocket each for a cell phone, a knife, and a cigar.

This coat is a little too noisy to take hunting, just in the movement of the material, and the fact that the side pockets are velcro closure (the chest pockets are zippered, however). But it is my daily coat for going to work etc. It looks sharp too. I've been wearing milsurp for decades, but we all know some milsurp is a little more obvious than others. By comparison, this is very low profile, with the durability and functionality of milsurp (Austrian milsurp no less), but pretty fashionable and unobtrusive.

I really like this coat.

Amazing jacket

It's far superior to the level 6 Goretex issued by the US military for a fraction of the price as well as it just looks far more esthetically pleasing with more protection from the rain, wind, and cold

Just a Good, Solid Jacket

Feels like a perfect marriage between the eternal ruggedness of the M-65 and the moisture-wicking performance of those obnoxiously fluorescent hardshells you'd shell out untold sums for at REI. As someone who is neither a fan of looking like a neon popsicle nor having my $200 outerwear frayed to shreds in a few seasons, I can't praise this garment enough.

I've worn this while cycling through quite a few downpours this winter with temps roughly around 40-50F. The jacket performs like it was designed for the task. I spent more than 5 hours in a windstorm earlier this week with gusts of 60mph without getting any detectable windchill whatsoever once I cinched up all of the Anzug's drawstrings.

The main drawback with most field jackets is their questionable suitability for anything involving a lot of perspiration. I've successfully worn this jacket while both running and cycling. It's preferable to my Salomon in several regards, though sweat can start condensing on the insides once temperatures climb to 60F+.

The hood can be adjusted to fit over a helmet if needed, but you can also cinch it in to be the size of a normal hood. Bonus points for not having the pointy bit on the M65 that makes you look like a klansman or a death eater. The hood even comes with a visor to keep rain off your face, a seriously underrated feature that I didn't know I needed.

Usually I size milsurp down a size, but I actually went down two sizes for the Austrians and I still have enough room for…
