The German government has a long history of providing their employees and agents with quality equipment. With the Ordnungsamt being responsible for code enforcement throughout Germany, there is no doubt as to why these code enforcement jackets were made so well. Designed to offer enforcement agents protection from wet weather, they have all of the enhancements you would want on a police jacket.
With Ordnungsamt agents being representatives of a civil law enforcement agency, they need to project an image of respect. The dark blue color of these jackets immediately presents an image of authority. Form and fit of these jackets lends them to being worn over everything from dress clothes to duty gear as the waist area uses a unique velcro system to take in or let out the rear of the jacket. Velcro patches have been pre-sewn in by the manufacturer to allow unit patches to be worn on either arm when required. There also is a moderate amount of reflective stripes along the waistband and cuffs to provide extra visibility while working in the field.
The original sizing of these jackets is off by one size. What this means is the German size small is a US size medium, which is why we have noted the size in this manner. We would also describe the jackets as being roomy and you may find a US medium runs close to being a US large depending on how loose or tight you like your jacket to fit. These are extremely well made and will be appreciated by you the first time you put one on.
