I've not tried out the rear tube pocket yet but, I can see where extra gear could be stored there; it's a very large pocket. I could see myself potentially carrying a fleece cap or gloves in the back pocket because they would be readily available as well as out of the way. It's just nice to have options and to keep your front hand pockets empty to reduce bulk.
I have never had a jacket with the side zippers and snaps for accessing my firearm but, it certainly does come in handy. I was at the range this weekend and had my full-sized Springfield XDM in a Blackhawk Serpa Holster and it was completely covered and concealed. Then, I unzipped the side zipper and let the jacket fall to the sides of the holster; I had complete access to the firearm and the jacket never got in the way.
I can say that most of the reviewers previous to me were right about the jacket not being the warmest thing on the planet. It was about 30 degree at the range this past weekend and I knew it was cold out the entire time. It wasn't super cold but, another layer would have helped out. I also don't like the way the sleeves are; they are extra long. I'm kind of a stumpy guy and my arms are kind of short so, I'm probably not a perfect example. The sleeves are extra long for me and they were kind of tight but, I like that they are tight. The tighter sleeves allow me to move a little better without all of the bulky mess that I experience with fleece jackets and rain jackets.
As far as sizing goes, I suggest you get one size larger than you usually wear. I'm a big guy and I usually wear a 4XL in Nike clothing. I usually wear a 3XL or 3XLT in Cabela's clothing. So, I was worried about sizing and called Tru-Spec. After talking to them, I decided on the 5XL and am glad I did. The shoulders and arms are tighter than I'm use to and the bigger size helps out a lot.
I REPEAT THE JACKET DOES NOT COME WITH ANY PATCHES.. I ADDED THOSE PATCHES IN MY PHOTOS JUST FOR IDEAS..AND MEASUREMENTS...
Okay.. I Ordered a Medium in the Tan jacket. It's pretty warm not to bad.. you can fit  patches on each arm depending on the size. The inside pockets are a thick mesh material.. With that said if your not using the pockets zipper them up because a draft will get through.. It does make you sweat a little bit for me anyway.. since it is 100% polyester. It is wind and water resistant I HAVE NOT tried it in the pouring rain just a drizzle and it runs off the jacket '''''. I've used this jacket during Temps like 35°-40°not the bitter COLD yet so I can't really comment on that.. People have told me it looks like a leather Jacket from afar and I tend to agree not Bad though it still looks Tactical to me it also has a very slight shine or gleam to it again not a deal breaker.. The coller is is very high to the neck for those cold days.. it also has rear pockets for extra concealment. There ISN'T ANY inside pockets FYI...I just ordered the Black one as well because I really like this Jacket alot.. the sleeves tend to get a bit dirty quickly.. READ THE WASHING TAG BEFORE PUTTING IN THE LAUNDRY.. Hope this review helps you.. I added photos Again NOOOOOOO PATCHES COME WITH THIS JACKET... ''
This is a very hefty soft shell with a thin fleece liner. It seems perfect for the South for most of the cooler months. Another layer or two may be needed in the colder months but with a balistic vest we typically only need a little bit of arm insulation to keep warm down here. It's probably not sufficient as a "coat" for colder climates but would still be good for spring/fall.
The velcro on the shoulders makes this a great jacket if your department doesn't provide all of your gear and you'd rather spend your money on something that you can wear "off duty" (and they have a fairly flexible uniform policy). I got two department patches from our administration/equipment guy, sewed "hook" velcro on the backs and keep them in the bicep pockets. This way I can wear it wherever I like without being "tha police" but can slap the department patches on when on duty and still be identifiable.
