Where to start? I've owned this jacket for more than a year now. I've worn it in every thing urban to dense forest, warm weather, cold weather, rain, and snow.
I love wearing this jacket to the range it fits slim around my waist so it doesn't interfere with my pistol belt. When I'm on duty I can comfortably fit a level 3a vest with a backup pistol under this jacket, and when I wear just a shirt underneth it's roomy without being to bulky.
In Colorado's Spring, Summer, and early Fall this is a great standalone jacket. When it gets colder than 50 degrees (f) I recomend putting in a liner. (5.11 fleece works great for that)
I've taken this jacket everywhere and given it the worst of treatment, but it's taken it very well showing little signs of abrasion and no cuts or tears. Once while hiking I slipped and fell down a rocky slope. My pants tore and my legs got some cuts, but my arms and torso recieved only bruises. I like to think my jacket was responsible for that (the protection not the fall).
The only cons I can think of aren't very big:
The mesh liner creates good airflow, but under heavy physical exertion zipper armpit windows would be appreciated (if you know what I mean).
Jacket is not a substitute for a rain coat. After several hours working outside in the rain, water did start seeping through the fabric on the shoulders. Despite that I think 5.11 acheived a good balance here, because (as anyone who has tried running in Goretex knows) more water proof means less breathable. Though a detachable or perhaps roll/fold concealable hood would be a good addition, because my hat won't stop rain from going down my collar.
Lastly the lower front pockets have holes for headphones, or other devices, so just know that if you put dimes or other small objects in those pockets they may fall out. :)
Good for everything perfect for none.

Excellent design.
Short front and longer back good for sitting or bending without exposing lower back.
Low profile plus zip, Velcro, and elastic adjustments ideal for movement and activities.
Remained waterproof for 2 hours in medium rain. Then became water resistant and soaked through around shoulder areas.
Zip up collar excellent for wind protection.
High warmth to weight ratio.
Low profile allows additional layers on top.
Moss/Granite color blends well in both urban and field conditions.

Ordered this jacket because I had talked to another officer who had one on. He convinced me to try it and I am glad I did. This is an excellent lightweight jacket for any season, or use. Nicely constructed.

great fitting jacket that looks great too. Spent three days rolling around in the dirt and mud. I thrrew it in the washer and it came out looking brand new. The only thing that would make tihs jacket better is if it was water proof instead of water resistant.

I love this Jacket, the only issue was that it was small, I have 5.11 covert shirts and another Duty Jacket and the Large size fits fine, hoever this jacket runs kind of small, I had to exchange it for an XL to be able to concel my gear.
Best jacket I own, I love the material and the style.

picked up this jacket at Cresent Supply / 511 store in Modesto. I have to first say, I have been in there several times, and the staff is wonderful. very helpful in helping with selection, product info and telling you about sales and upcoming sales. I like this Jacket. Perfect weight for Spring thru Fall, and warmer winter days. The fit was fine, I would like about another inch in lenght in the front. I would have liked an interior rightside chest pocket. Plenty of realestate on the inside for more pockes. I think this is ment to be a fast jacket for on the go, with out becoming a do all jacket. If your looking for a jacket you can rull around in, and not use it like a gear collector, then its perfect.

This is a great coat for off duty and non-uniformed on duty operations. It is a perfect balance between warmth and light weight manuverability. The only thing I dont like are the interior pockets that are perfectly sized for extra magazines, however they are loose and do not secure.
