The pocket configuration is a key element of the Stealth Smock. With an integrated MOLLE system it allows a modular set up of at least 4 pouches* and with additional 7 pockets it provides sufficient space for storing all your essential gear for a short term mission.
*The UF PRO® Stealth pouches are not included and can be ordered separately.
The huge back pocket is meant for bigger pieces of equipment, like rain gear, a small tarp, poncho, a light sleeping bag, etc. It offers you the ability to separate two compartments with a zipper. Its bulk can be adjusted with two straps and a two level button system.
THE BREATHABLE LOAD BEARING SYSTEM.
The spacious pocket configuration of the Stealth Smock allows you to carry around 12 to 15kg, which meant we had to find a way to keep the jacket comfortable and in place, even with all that load.
The unique load bearing system of the Striker Stealth Smock ensures that even the fully loaded jacket does not dangle and swing around you, whenever you make a move. It ergonomically distributes the weight on the whole torso and provides truly excellent wear comfort.
It consists basically of two modules:
The main part of the weight is held by a breathable waist belt. It has three air permeable cushions which are positioned in the hip and lower spine area. The belt is exactly in line with the front, side and back pouches.
Therefore it not only carries, but also stabilizes the weight around the wearers centre of gravity.
All remaining weight is carried by big areas of air/pac® inserts, which are in the shoulder, upper chest and upper back area.
So whatever you store in the smock is supported and held in place by those two modules, the load bearing belt and the upper torso air/pac® inserts. Both are comfortably cushioning and air permeable.
THE HOOD/HARNESS® SYSTEM.
The stow away hood has an integrated Hood/Harness® system which allows you unhindered vision, air circulation and good hearing while wearing the hood.
RELIABLE ELBOW PROTECTION.
The Striker Stealth Smock can be additionally equipped with the UF PRO® Elbow pads*, which give you comfortable and reliable protection for your elbows. Additionally, the elbow area is reinforced with CORDURA® material for extreme abrasion resistance.
*The UF PRO® Flex Elbow pads are not included.
As carrying a full loud can get pretty hot, we integrated in the sides and arm pit area ventilation openings.
The crotch strap serves as a safety, so that the Smock does not slip up while crawling backwards. It is detachable and folds away into an integrated stow away pocket.
