Light, form fitted but pricey

By BWeare

from Seattle, WA

This XL is a tighter fitting jacket in the chest and a little more loose around waist for me (I'm 6'4" 260lbs 38" waist). Other XL 5.11 jackets are larger on me. This one's best for off-duty as it doesn't have any unifrom features and has the tight fit so body armor wouldn't fit if you buy your normal jacket size. I tried on an XXL and it fit me like a bell. The jacket is very lightweight when compared to other bonded poly fleece jackets. The bad thus far is only the price.


Great Jacket

By Action

from 7th Fleet

I bought this jacket about month ago. I like it alot and I have gotten a lot of compliments about it. However, it didn't prove it's worth till last night. We were riding through a typhoon last night and I had anchor watch for 6 hours on the bow. Despite 60 knots winds and rain I stayed warm and comfortable. The jacket is strong, well made and comfortable. I would recommend it strongly.


Worth Every Penny

The jacket is more than what I expected. Lots of pockets, I can store anything. The fabric is great for outdoors.
