Chances are that at some point today, you’ve used a piece of military technology. Your GPS? The internet? That new medical procedure you just got? You can thank our men and women in uniform for that. But the innovation that is spurred on by our armed forces isn’t just limited medical technology and the web. They’re also spurring on changes in outdoor gear, like with OR’s Infiltrator Jacket.
This jacket is packed full of some of the best tech and design from both Outdoor Research and Gore Military Fabrics. Featuring a hardshell exterior that can block out snow and water while remaining totally breathable. What really makes this tactical jacket stand out, however, is its incredible flexibility. The integrated Gore Military Fabric stretch panels along the arms and Gore-Tex Flex2Fit panels on the chest make for an hard shell that is capable of articulating to your ever movements. OR even thought to make for a hood that can fit snugly over modern ballistic helmets. The only downside? Being on the cutting edge isn’t cheap – prices start at $800. [Purchase]
