Our main winter coat was devised for a civilian, rather than a military role. It has been in use for more than twenty years and has been tested in every shooting environment from Iceland to The Falklands. It attracts nothing but favourable comparison with every competitive product and contains many features. More important than the features, however, is the rugged reliability of the coat – it is large and strong, multi-layered, but still fairly light for what it actually does. The coat was built to withstand the worst that the weather can throw at you - and it does exactly that. Many of our coats last well over a decade, even with mainly winter usage. Remember, this is effectively three garments in one – as ever, copied by many and bettered by none. Check out the features, further down.
The coat started gaining professional use in surveillance roles. People hiding in bushes, at times, need to be there for days on end, making reliable performance essential in avoiding detection. The Arktis coat again did the job through many a tense exercise, in many a harsh winter. This is vintage, legendary, classic and top of the field. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for”, and you get absolute value for money on this higher-priced item.
