Known for its field-tested clothing and gear, Ten Thousand has collaborated with everyone from pro CrossFitters to record-holding endurance runners to ensure that each one of its products is extraordinary for the purpose it was built for. The New York-based activewear brand has hit home runs in the past with its high-function and deceptively-stylish tactical shirts and shorts, but its newest release takes practicality and utility to a whole new level.
Designed in collaboration with members of the U.S. Special Operations Forces, the Tactical Over Zip is so lightweight that you wouldn’t believe how durable it is. Made from a Polartec Power Grid polyester for its main fabric, Ripstop nylon for the shoulders and sleeves — which were finished with water-repellent DWR — this coat offers protection from the harshest of elements while also being insanely comfortable.
The Tactical Over Zip was field-tested by Tu Lam, a member of the U.S. Army Special Forces, to ensure breathability, regulation of core temperature, and durability. The coat also comes equipped with a discreet card pocket on the left arm and is given a permanent silver ion anti-odor treatment to withstand your most rigorous adventures or workouts. This piece of activewear is truly meant to last, with a lifetime guarantee to back it.
Thin enough to be a mid-layer, yet warm enough to serve as your go-to spring jacket, The Tactical Over Zip is now available on Ten Thousand’s online store for $128 and comes in two colorways: Black and Iron/OD Green.
