The Mil-Tec CCE smock is a lightweight parka constructed from a cotton/polyester ripstop outer shell alongside a 100 percent polyester liner. The smock is secured via a full-length front zipper with a button-closure storm flap. It also features an internal cinch-cord waist to prevent updrafts as well as rib-knit cuffs for comfort. Also noteworthy is the drawstring hood, which is easily rolled into the collar for storage when not in use. Other features include reinforced elbows, armpit vents and a series of pockets. The Mil-Tec CCE smock has: two internal zip pockets, two button-flap chest pockets, two vertical zip chest pockets, two button-flap hip pockets, two button-flap arm pockets, two side zip pockets, two rear button-flap pockets and one large button-flap pocket.
Also noteworthy is the aforementioned Camouflage Centre Europe, or CCE, pattern. The CCE camouflage pattern was adopted in 1991, shortly after France put the Daguet pattern into service. It is a three-color woodland pattern that borrows heavily from the United States' M81 woodland design, but retains the unmistakably French heavy stripe patterns characteristic of earlier French patterns.
Great value for the price. Although it's not a military issued jacket, it is just as good if not better. This jacket has lots of big pockets, ribbed cuffs for comfort, a built-in hood, waistline drawstring to keep in heat and the CCE pattern goes great with the rest of my US woodland camo.
I purchased this as a gift and at first the dual zipper tabs threw me. Basically if you pull them both down to the bottom of the jacket and facing the jacket the left side will pull out. Once I realized how this worked, my husband was thrilled to death with his new jacket. I am sure he will get many years of use as this is really well made.
