Only the Swiss could engineer a piece of kit that can serve as a winter jacket, rain poncho, backpack, tactical webbing and sniper suit in the form of one jacket. 

Absolute overkill. 

Developed from the original 1950s era "Vierfruchtpyama" (literally "four fruit pajamas") pattern of the Swiss Army, and marketed as "Alpenflauge", the TAZ83 variant is a revision of this classic pattern. First introduced in 1983, this pattern is pretty darn snazy, and works well in a variety of environments, particularly during late summer and through to early winter in temperate climates. Incredibly, they are available in very lightly used "Grade 1" condition, or even like-new "Super Grade"!

These jackets are chalked full of feature including the following:
  • Incredible sizing range, with both mediums and larges fitting both smaller and larger sizes ranges due to inclusion of elasticated cuffs and waist (the Swiss one-size-fit-all approach)
  • Heavy duty cotton construction for all your adventures in a snazzy pattern
  • Fully adjustable neck collar
  • Battle-jacket style pockets with snap buttons
  • Three large magazine pockets and two large auxiliary pockets at front exterior
  • Three auxiliary pockets at rear exterior
  • Shoulder pocket at left sleeve exterior
  • Zippered large auxiliary pocket on the interior
  • Sleeves can be unzipped to allow ease of rolling up
  • Rubber reinforced elbows for water proofing and durability
  • Hood with collapsible face veil in Alpenflauge pattern
  • Additional buttons to fold up entire hood system
  • Heavy duty zipper with external snap buttons for zipper protection
  • Metal gear clip built right into the jacket
  • Included 15L satchel pack designed specifically for jacket, with different attachment locations
