Modox’s version of the original, gold standard of gorka storm suits. A mute colored classic.

This style of gorka is nicknamed the “Tourist”. Referring to its popularity not only in military, but by civilians as well. (In Russian, “Tourist” more closely means “Outdoorsman” or “Hiker”.)

“Gorka” (Горка) means “little mountain”. Inspired by the days of wearing Plash Palatka shelter halfs, this tough little suit designed to take you through any weather, terrain, or season. With appropriate layering this gorka becomes the jack of all trades.

The all cotton “Tent Fabric” is comfortable, durable, and water resistant. It protects from wind and weather while not suffocating the user. It is treated to repel water and with proper care (and additional coats of water repellent) can be used in rain.

Is this a "real" gorka? Who is MODOX?

Modox is a military distributor just like other gorka companies. Their gear has been used by multiple Russian military departments, and as seen combat. I had a chance to compare the modox gorka to a BARS and SSO model. It far surpassed the BARS gorka in terms of fabric quality, and design. Compared to the SSO Gorka-E It seemed equal in fabric quality, and design.
Next time we do a run of Gorkas we will do some more comprehensive content on comparisons. 

Specs

  • A well tested classic. Used by Military, special forces, and civilians alike for decades.

  • Constructed from “Tent Fabric”, (http://www.modox.ru/палаточная-ткань.html) a 100% Cotton grey brown canvas.

  • Two cinch cords hold the hood in place. One around the main opening of the hood, and another around the back of the head.

  • Button secured storm flap with all buttons except for the top three covered.

  • Parka has 4 outside pockets. Two buttoned below the waist pockets, and two ergonomically angled hook and loop secured shoulder pockets.

  • Parka also has a inside pocket on the left breast.

  • Two elastic cuffs just above the waist and cinch cord at the hem help tighten the parka.

  • Pants have internal elastic belt, along with an separate cinch cord.

  • Wide belt loops will fit 50mm web belts

  • A combination of button, hook and loop, and metal clips all secure the fly of the pants. My assumption is that the redundancy ensures that even if your pants were to take damage, you will have some way to close your fly.

  • Whether crawling or running, very low profile and comfortable suspenders stay secure and comfortable during any activity.

  • Pants have two button secured cargo pockets and two deep back pockets.

  • Double layered ripstop fabric in the elbows, seat, and knees.

  • Internal elastic bands in wrist and pant cuffs.
