✓ Insulated ✓ Comfort: -5°c ✓ Low: -10°c
The Snugpak Sleeka Elite Jacket, also known as Softie Jacket, has been widely used by the British Forces for many a year now. First used in the Falklands conflict, and in pretty much every single one since the Sleeka Elite provides warmth when it is needed the most. Its vast combat history means that you can rest assured it will not let you down; As Snugpak say "Tested in War and Never Been Beaten". When Snugpak created the Sleeka range of jackets, outdoor comfort would never be quite the same. With a comfort rating of -5°c, this jacket is great for UK winter use and designed for those on the move.
The Elite version enjoys all the Sleeka benefits and has been enhanced with reinforced patches covering all stress points: shoulder, elbow and cuff, to make sure it gives you the performance you expect when you're putting it through its paces. The traditional 2-Pocket layout is designed as an external layer, great to wear over a Smock. Filled with Snugpak's Softie Insulation, it can be stored in the supplied compression stuff sack for long periods of time, and when unpacked it won't have lost any thermal characteristics.

very warm and very lightweight.
Snug as a Bug
I received this jacket very quickly from UKMC Pro, and I’m very pleased with it. Very warm and easy to thrown on quickly (easier than my Buffalo shirt). I have not tested in the field yet but imagine it would work well under a smock in a more stationary role (OP, etc.). Outer shell appears a bit fragile, but layered up this would be no issue. Compacts down nicely in stuff sack. Pockets a bit small, but not a problem if wearing an outer layer .Really good warmth to weight.
