First order of business was removing all of the gay british pieces of flair because I’m an American.
Wear it almost daily during the winter here on our mountain compound in the Rockies as a kind of “ranch coat”. Whether it’s chickens, firewood duty, working in a cold gargage or shooting guns, this is a very well made, tough jacket. The large pockets are very handy for holding tools, chicken eggs, cans of beer or pmags. Very versatile.
The zipper is tracked backwards (pull zip up with lefthand) but I don’t expect too much from a conquered and cucked former empire.
Requires layering for really cold weather. Usually wear a base layer plus fleece or wool sweater underneath. Would not want to wear this in any kind of precip in cold weather for an extended amount of time because cotton.
It’s a very quiet jacket. The large buttons and soft material allow for and encourage stealth mode.
The DPM pattern is foreign enough in appearance to make both my neighbors and enemies subconsciously fear me but they just can’t quite figure out why.
Lastly the 180/96 fits me quite well albeit with slightly short sleeves (6’2” 185lbs athletic).
