Product Description

ECWCS (Extreme Cold Weather Clothing System) Fleece Jacket, Genuine U.S. Military Issue, Brown (Bear Tops)

These genuine U.S. Government Issue Cold Weather Jackets are amazingly warm and practical. Nicknamed the "Bear Shirt", they are used as Layer of for the Extended Cold Weather System (ECWCS - Pronounced "EK-Wax") and are the absolute state-of-the-art in cold weather clothing. Tested under combat conditions in some of the harshest climates on earth, ECWCS clothing provide longterm comfort across an extremely wide range of temperatures, from 40°F to -60°F. There is no better system for extended outdoor warmth and comfort.

These Jackets have the following features:
- Two expanding breast pockets with velcro-snap-flaps
- Two front insulated hand-warming pockets
- Black Nylon reinforced shoulders and underarms
- Convertible turtleneck collar
- High Quality YKK brand front zipper
- Layer 2 of the ECWCS
- Moisture wicking design, worn directly over underlayer
- Made to NATO specifications of 100% fleece by the Vanderbilt company
- These are designed as a close-fitting midlayer and run tight for their rated size.

Free cleaning advice = never machine dry these (or any) fleece garments. After washing they will almost be dry--simply hang-dry for an hour to prevent shrinking or pilling.

    Be advised: this "fleece" is nothing like regular consumer products called by the same name. It is stiff, a bit bulky, and not at all soft or pleasing to the touch. Wind blows through it like it isn't there. However, this fleece does one thing very well: create an insulating layer of air between you and an outer windproof shell. As part of such a system, it is extremely warm. So warm, in fact, that it's best suited for sitting in a tree stand (or I suppose standing around on guard duty). You can play with the comfortable temperature range a little by wearing it alone, or by using an extremely lightweight windbreaker over it, but there are better clothing alternatives for those temperatures. Its best use by far is as part of an Extreme Cold Weather System, just like it says. Great value for the money there.

    Also, they aren't kidding about the wacky sizing. I'm 5'11", 180lbs, and I can just barely squeeze into a large. Like, I can't really lift my arms over my head. I can sure stand in one spot and be warm, though.

    This garment is a liner meant to be zipped into a coat. not too bad for the price But I recommend buying two sizes larger
    than usual. I bought a large. I'm 5'-9" and 170lbs. I couldn't even put the coat on. I gave it to a friend who is 5'-5" and 120lbs. and if it were any smaller they couldn't wear it either.I probably needed to buy a 2xl.

    Was glad to buy one of the same jackets that is issued in the military. Only reason for the lower rating is the sizes are not correct. I suspect this is a knock off brand, so the XL is much more like something between a M or L for U.S. sizes. Otherwise a very good jacket.

    I used this for Hunting season for an intermediate layer. You can't use it for a top layer, the wind will blow right through it.

    Already had a chance to ware it in the mountains. Very nice. Pre-wash it before the first ware, the material particles are all over you.
