Military 1st | Helikon Gunfighter Soft Shell Jacket

RRP: £89.50 |

When you look outside the angling world at outdoors clothing, you often find some real gems which have been purpose-designed for the harsh conditions you may face in other activities. Military 1st’s Helikon Gunfighter Soft Shell Jacket is certainly one that caught my attention. It’s made from a four-way elastic polyester soft shell (known as Sharkskin) and finished with a highly insulating super-fine fleece lining which gives ideal protection against the elements and aids with ventilation and provides moisture infiltration. Featuring a very impressive arrangement of cleverly placed pockets, this jacket allows you to adjust the cobra-style hood by altering the elasticated drawstrings, which are located inside the chest pockets. The hood itself rolls into the collar of the jacket, giving more comfort and protection from the wind when the high collar is fully zipped up. All the pockets on this jacket can be zipped up to provide further wind and rain protection, with the inclusion of the small arm pocket and lower back openings. Another impressive feature of this jacket is the main front zipper, which is fully windproof with double zipper pulls, to keep the warmth in and cut out any potential draughts in harsh conditions. Temperature is regulated via the armpit ventilation zippers and drawstring waistband, using the cord lock to ensure complete warmth, or should you wish, to let more air flow through. Available in nine different colours and patterns, there is something to suit all.
