The breathability of the fabric is increased in the Gen II in order to provide more comfort across a broader range of temperatures and weather conditions, thereby enhancing its operational effectiveness. Gore-Tex® fabric maintains its outstanding protection over time, even after exposure to chemicals and oils, such as JP-8, DEET, petroleum and more. This parka also features n-IR signature reduction.

My purchase was exactly what I was looking for and it was delivered way quicker than expected.
I have wanted this parka for a while now, and the build quality was what I would expect. I have only two complaints, both can be remedied by my local tailor. The large is perfect for my torso and chest, but the sleeve length is short as the coat is a large, regular. I am having the sleeves let out for a longer length. The bottom draw cord was missing, but the sleeve is there for the draw cord so I am having one added. As these coats are perfect for active outdoor activities, I am very happy with this and it is exactly what I expected. I probably will wear this on the next deployment as my wet weather jacket of choice.
