The Italian Army has been using Vegetato camouflage as the standard since 2004. With a look that is distinctly Italian and prized by collectors for the rare availability, we have seen interest and demand for authentic Vegatato camouflage gear skyrocket. We managed to procure a small number of these cutting edge soft shell jackets that might be the most versatile Vegatato based item we have ever had. This multi-season jacket is perfect for year round wear by virtually every single customer we have.
One of the questions you may have is what exactly is a soft shell jacket. The answer is simple, think of it as a hard faced fleece jacket. This hard faced outer layer provides superior wind and water resistance with the inner fleece providing the warmth. This combination makes soft shell jackets ideal for winter activities like down hill skiing, climbing, and other physical activity where you want a breathable jacket that has superior water and wind resistance. The hard face also allows for a more robust printed camouflage pattern which makes this vegatato soft shell jacket really stand out when you wear it.
