On H11 I saw some blokes wearing trial issue soft-shell jackets: they were mostly light windproof / warmers kit but not waterproofs. Very good kit for a winter tour, more comfortable, lighter and less baggy than an issued smock, and easier to vent. Looked something like this Webtex piece below, except they came in olive green and desert plain colour: Having had the standard experience with Webtex before, not too keen on buying their version. Does anyone know if the trial issued versions I saw are on sale from civvy outlets, of any military-specific similar makes which are for sale anywhere? EDIT: the ones I saw out in theatre were identifible by having the velcro badge attachments on the right (and possibly left, can't remember) arm, and zip pockets on the left (and possibly right) arm for access when wearing body armour. Cheers!
