British Army Desert DPM MVP Combat Jacket
The British Army Desert DPM MVP Combat Jacket is a wind-proof and water-proof jacket currently issued to soldiers in the British Army. Made from MVP material, the performance of these jackets on the battle field is legendary. Having seen service in Iraq and Afghanistan, these jackets were prized by British soldiers and their allies who appreciated how well they fought the elements in combat.
The British Army Desert DPM MVP Combat Jacket is one of the most iconic army jackets of the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars. With the British fighting along side of the US military, the Desert DPM camouflage pattern and these jackets in particular were seen in combat footage nightly. With the war now over for many years for the British, we have been lucky to acquire some unissued jackets like these Desert DPM MVP Combat Jackets.
If you have never heard of an MVP jacket, the MVP stands for moisture, vapor, permeable which describes the performance capabilities of the material used to construct the jacket. The jacket will keep out wind and water, but is breathable so that excess sweat and body heat will leave the jacket to allow you to stay warm and dry. There are many types of material that perform similarly, one example being GORE-TEX. The common trait between all of these tri-laminate fabrics is the breathability and water resistance.
