The Samaritan jacket design is inspired by the Special Operations Forces Protective Clothing Unit Level 5 jacket (PCU L5). The PCU Jacket has been the staple for elite forces, from Navy SEALS to Green Berets, all over the world and favored by outdoorsmen and adventure seekers alike.
In the Samaritan we have borrowed the functions that have made these jackets popular under extreme conditions and made them more “urban friendly” for everyday use. But still protection is the number one concern so they are made of durable 4 way stretch soft shell material and are wind/ water resistant with a DWR protective membrane cloth that lets water vapor out but contains body heat. The Samaritan jacket works great by itself but is also light enough to layer beneath making it a great shell jacket to weather most harsh conditions.
Considering most will use this jacket while in movement or doing many tasks we have taken the many universal features of most soft shell outdoor jackets and kept the ones that will work while eliminating others that or more fashion than function.
Additional features are the ambidextrous upper arm pocket for holding objects for quick access, lower wrist pocket for accessing quick items such as ID/PASSPORTS or travel tickets, under arm zipper for quick ventilation after aerobic movements, large front zippered pockets - with interior hooking loops, that can be easily accessed while wearing a backpack or other equipment and a comfortable adjustable hood. For outdoor visibility and team activities there is also two upper arm velcro patches to use with any velcro hook patch or item.
Also in this world of connectivity we understand that people are in use of their communication devices more than ever. So integrated in the design of both front and upper arm pockets are built in slots to threat your headphone cords to use with your music device or smart phone.
Comes with one AMERICAN FLAG velcro patch and one MASTER & COMMANDER ROGUE velcro Patch.
With every jacket purchased another will be donated to a child in developing country orphanage.”
