Alaska Tested


From Kristi


I own more coats than any one person should own. This is by far my most favorite jacket. I've had it a little over a year now. I primarily wear it over a Threat Lvl III vest (Outer Carrier so very bulky) The coat lays nice over my gear. I've never had to add a liner. It worked perfect as the top layer. It was roomy through the shoulders.The coat breathes well. During the rainy wet days, no issues with leakage. The zippers have been perfect, no issues. Over all I'm impressed. I did have patches sewn on the shoulders due to our department standards. I was worried the rain or snow make leak through the stitches but no issues. Great Jacket!

My "Go-To Jacket"


From Tactical-Shooter


This is my "Go-To Jacket" and I love it... So Why did I only give it "4 Stars" you ask? The zippers are terrible, flimsy and weak feeling. In my opinion this is the jackets only flaw. 5.11 stands behind them 100% but it's a pain to send back a jacket I wear all the time, so I own two. I read the reviews about it not being waterproof and they must have a different jacket because I have been in some heavy rains and never been soaked... It's extremely durable and find them warm. If it's really cold I can wear a base layer and it's perfect.

Not Waterproof & Adhesive on the Zippers sucks


From Jerann


I have two sabre jacket the sabre and the sabre 2.0. the adhesive on the zippers didnt hold that long. Liked the style. If this jacket has a gore tex version. We are Innovators Who Make Purpose-built Gear for the Most Demanding Missions
Built on a foundation of durability, quality and value, 5.11 Tactical leads the industry in delivering functionally innovative gear, head to toe. I dont think so in this product.

Love the look and pockets but has flaws


From Brandt


Pros: Looks nice, has a lot of pockets, places to add patches of my agency, waterproof but not at a gortex level.

Cons: anything colder the 50 F this jacket does not keep you warm, gets hot when I'm working Special Housing and moving a lot, Price is a little expensive, wish they made it where u can add a warmer layer for frigid temp.

Purchased on Black Friday 2015 Phoenix AZ


From Mr. Nobody


5'7-190-33'' waist- Purchased Black in XL due to prior review comments. For staters Jacket seems to be made pretty well. First inspection of the product was that it was lightweight not a lot of bulk. After wearing almost every since then it has been pretty good overall coat. Recently started carrying OWB full size g21 & g34 in kydex for Bladtec holsters due the fact its more comfortable. Conceling and producing the firearm is easy. Even the G34 is concealed from searching eyes. Living in Phoenix it does get into the low 30s, at that point you may need another layer. Mid range weather I usually have on a UA or similar polo. This works just fine.This jacket is perfect for that environment. If there is a lot of wind the box cut coat lets the breeze in. Inside the hand warmer pockets there is a pull string to sung it up. This does not interfere with the pull CCW zipper. You must unbuckle the plastic clips at the zipper in order for it to work perfect every time. shake it out and try it out before you get jammed up. I chose black due to the overall general wear of the coat. If I was wearing it while deployed I may have chose a cool guy color. But the wife also gets sick of seeing tan, coyote and OD everyday. If you purchase on black friday or with 15 percent off you will save around $68. I will update later if I become dissatisfied or the coat fails.

Fabric not durable!


From Kevin in Washington

from Washington State

I am a police officer in Washington State. I have bought 5.11 products in the past and have been very pleased. I purchased this jacket on Feb 22, 2013, received it in early March. The design and fit of the jacket was excellent. However, first time at the range on March 16, the jacket developed a small hole in the forearm area just below the elbow. There were obvious rub marks around the hole. We were using plastic barrels as cover and were prone in the grass, all-in-all an easy day. That is my first experience with a failure in a 5.11 product. Called 5.11 and was refused an exchange. I would NOT recommend this jacket for anything other than a night at the movies.

I would buy this product again.

I use the Sabre 2.0 Jacket at work and I like the way the system provides immediate access to a holstered sidearm, and zipping handwarmer pockets are Backup Belt System.

Not waterproof- disappointed


From MikeH

from California

Have had this jacket now for a year or so. Purchased it because I wanted a waterproof- or heavily water resistant jacket. This fit the bill perfectly... or so I thought.

We don't get a lot of rain in San Diego, but was just outside yesterday in a moderately heavy rain for about 15 minutes. One forearm and one elbow wet when I got home. Really surprised. Wasn't wearing the hood, so I knew some would drip down my neck/ back... which it did. But I didn't expect anything else to be wet.

Disappointed. I like the style and fit but this doesn't work for what I purchased it for.

Waterproof NOT


From GuardianAgent

from Knoxville, TN

I needed a jacket that was good for everyday day use and that would keep me dry in the rain. I found this jacket and it seemed to fit the bill. However this jacket should not say waterproof but should say water resistant. I wore this during a rain storm one day and it kept me dry for about 2 hours but by hour 3 my upper body was damp and by hour 6 I was soaked. You would think for the high price it would be a great product but now I have to buy a new rain jacket that will actually keep me dry for more than 2 hours.
