Improved version of the very popular PATRIOT jacket from HELIKON-TEX. The new Hybrid Fleece material with a weight of 340 g/m2 has been used for its production, which offers the same excellent warmth as the previous model while reducing weight and improving breathability. Hybrid Fleece consists of two layers: the outer layer is like a classic fleece, the inner layer resembles the "waffle" material used on Alpha sweatshirts. Compared to the previous version, the number and location of pockets has changed. To improve the ventilation of excess heat, the jacket has ventilation holes in the armpits.
Fastening of the jacket is solved by a long central zipper, which is finished with a protector in the collar. The hood of the jacket is adjustable by cords with plastic brakes and has a small visor. To carry gear, the jacket has a total of seven pockets. The front lower pockets are spacious enough for hands even in winter gloves and its closure is solved by zippers covered by a flap. The upper front pockets are flat, suitable for storing smaller equipment. The raglan sleeves have Velcro panels for VELCRO patches, a pair of smaller pockets and elasticated cuffs. The last pocket can be found on the inside of the jacket. The jacket is elongated at the back and the hem can be adjusted with drawstrings with stoppers.
