Military clothing has long been worn by soldiers and civilians who appreciate the look, style, fit, and performance that military clothing provides. No other company has been at the forefront of creating some of the finest commercial military-theme clothing than Mil-Tec of Germany. This Commando Smock is a great example of this industry leading effort at bringing the best in military to the civilian market.
There are a number of military features that are immediately recognizable on the Commando Smock. The first is the outer fabric used to produce the smock is Rip-Stop which has decades of proven performance in mitigating rips in clothing. You can count on this jacket to be around for a long time in your closet as the Rip-Stop material will ensure it will not meet a premature end. Second, the use of olive drab colored material immediately evokes a military look and feel yet the lack of camouflage means this jacket can be worn in nearly any setting.
Just picked one of these up and already tested it. Like all Mil-Tec products, this is a great piece of clothing. I am very happy with this purchase.
The size fits fine - I am 5'7", 150, 150 pounds. Nice fit, straight cut with enough room to wear a fleece/sweater underneath. The sleeves are perfect length. The length of the coat comes to mid-thigh.
Coat is well constructed of rip stop cotton/poly blend. Medium weight material that is a dark OD green. Lined with a mesh inside near the shoulders and vented in the back, the coat is well designed for cool to warm days. Buttons up the front with an overlap flap to hide the buttons.
Pockets are great - 4 front pockets and two hidden pockets behind the top front pockets. Side entry sleeve pockets are quite handy as well. Velco on one sleeve for patches if that is important to you.
This is a good basic smock/heavy shirt/jacket. It can do it all and it is rugged to boot. I am quite happy with this purchase. Look forward to using it plenty out shooting and hiking.
