    22 SAS Mountain Troop goretex jacket

    Post by Bury_Dave on Tue Sep 18, 2012 4:23 pm

    Picked this up from someone I know who's just left 22 SAS. He was last serving wth 'G' Sqn which is Mountain Troop. They were issued with this jacket and a matching pair of trousers (which i am hoping to have in my hands soon .. ).
    The jacket is made by Taiga of Sweden. It is a triple layer goretex fully IRR.
    Has a huge volume adjustable hood with hidden drawcords. 2 loer pockets close with zippers and a velcro flap. These pockets and the pit zippers are the waterproof type. The main zipper and the zippers for the vertical under the storm flap pockets are the same as the Swedish M90 camo jacket.. There are velcro closing cuffs and the jacket has a poachers pocket in the lower back internally and a crotch strap to stop the wind getting under it. There are two sleeve pockets on each upper arm. One with a velcro flap and the other closing with velcro but having a folding flap to make it waterproof.

    They retail for £550 Shocked I didn't pay even a quarter of that though Very Happy

    It's a shame that DPM - especially the darker coloured ones - doesn't photograph well. It really is an awesome jacket !!

    Thanks Gary. Perhaps only you and I have a discerning eye Wink

    Being current kit, I thought it might be of interest to more people than my usual preference for older, obsolete stuff that I usually post.

    I've never quite got a handle on what is hot and what is not on here Question

    Cheers, Dave

    No worries Mate, perhaps your right there, and yes I am yet to fully comprehend what's on the "top of the pops" myself.

    This one's more hero than zero, in my most humble opinion Dave Wink

    Looks a lot like my north face GTX American import sumit jacket , that retails for about £600 stateside minus the goretex flease liner. So yeah I can see where the MOD gets charged the £550 !!

    bob on fella , pity however it don't look special if you know what I mean. If it was American SF jacket it would bling like a gangsters fake ass gold hubcap around his neck.

    Top draw kit mate.
