The nastier the weather is, the more you'll appreciate the waterproof/windproof protection provided by the Recon Shell Jacket. Every aspect of this jacket is focused on keeping elite operators and their gear at peak efficiency, regardless of the weather. The attached hood can be adjusted for girth and snugged around the face so it will swivel with your head instead of blocking your view of your surroundings. Waterproof zippers on the front closure, right forearm pocket and handwarmer pockets provide maximum protection from rain and snow. The zippered chest pocket has a storm flap and removable credential pull-out. Large two-way zippered side vents extend from the snaps at the hem to the upper arms. They also provide quick access to sidearms and other critical gear. Stretch cuffs with Velcro adjustment tapes and two locking shock cords at the hem keep the outside out and the inside dry.
